Kim Kardashian Visited Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner

Kim Kardashian to ask Trump to pardon great-grandma serving life sentence for first-time drug offence

Kim Kardashian to ask Trump to pardon great-grandma serving life sentence for first-time drug offence

Now his wife, Kim Kardashian, has also met with the president, and it may seem just as odd to some observers, but her crusade has also engendered a fair amount of support.

President Trump's meeting with the reality show starlet to discuss the weighty issue of prison reform spawned a collection of poignant and hilarious commentary on social media.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West has visited the White House to make a star-powered case for prison reform and advocate on behalf of a woman serving a life sentence for drug offences.

Johnson is now sentenced to life in prison at the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama. But while Kardashian West may be the biggest name, she is by far the least respected person working towards American prison reform, as the above New York Post headline crystallizes. "Today is for you", West tweeted, along with a happy birthday wish for Johnson.

Kim Kardashian reportedly wanted to ask the billionaire to grant Ms Johnson clemency.

Kim Kardashian West has been pictured at the White House ahead of talks with Donald Trump over prison reform.

"To keep Miss Alice in prison for the rest of her life is morally and economically indefensible", said Brittany Barnett, who is part of the legal team set up by Kardashian West to represent Johnson.

As Radar previously reported, Kardashian's rapper husband, Kanye West, is an avid Trump supporter.

Kim is understood to have then contacted Mic's lawyer to try to help with the case and has spoken with Johnson herself.

"The president seems to have a passion for everything that Jared has been trying to do", she said. "It's unconscionable that she is serving a death sentence".

"We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her - will get a second chance at life", she added.

They caught up to discuss the case of U.S. prisoner Alice Marie Johnson.

First, Trump granted a posthumous pardon to former boxing heavyweight champion Jack Johnson - the first black man to achieve that status - after his great-great niece and movie star Sylvester Stallone submitted pleas.
