White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters earlier Wednesday that the meeting would happen but declined to detail what she expected from it, and Trump administration officials did not immediately respond to NBC's request for comment on details of the reported conversation after Kardashian West and Kushner departed the White House separately. Johnson, as Kardashian has previously discussed on social media, is now serving a life sentence without parole for a firs-time, nonviolent drug offense.
Let's get checking out a bunch of times Kylie Jenner proved she was the Queen of selfies.
She told Mic that if she had the chance to meet the president, she'd tell him, "I really do believe that she's going to really thrive outside of prison, and I would just urge him to please pardon her".
Many on social media have been critical of Mrs Kardashian West's unlikely role as a prison reform advocate and say there are thousands of cases that deserve closer examination.
Kim Kardashian West is hopeful President Donald Trump will do the right thing when it comes to prison reform after meeting the world leader on Wednesday. I made the biggest mistake of my life to make ends meet and got involved with people selling drugs.
Kim was invited to The White House by Trump's son in law Jared Kushner to talk about prison reform with Trump and the case of Alice Marie Johnson - a 63-year-old grandmother who is serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence.
The 37-year-old reality star organised a meeting with the US President at the White House in Washington DC on Wednesday, in a quest to free great-grandmother Alice Marie Johnson from prison.
Kardashian West's husband, Kanye West, has drawn criticism for his support of the president, and was pictured wearing a cap bearing the slogan, "Make America Great Again", a phrase associated with Trump.
During the bitter 2016 election, Kardashian backed Trump's arch-rival Hillary Clinton.
Trump has proved receptive to other celebrity entreaties, such as one from Sylvester Stallone that resulted in Trump's recent posthumous pardon of boxer Jack Johnson. The case elicited widespread outrage when Brown was given a life sentence without eligibility for parole for 51 years.
Attorney Brittany K. Barnett, who is part of Johnson's legal team, said Kardashian West's meetings at the White House "seemed to go well". The president and West exchanged compliments on Twitter last month. Today is for you ✨.
