American reality TV star Kim Kardashian West recently decided to meet US President Donald Trump to bring to his notice the case of a woman serving a life sentence for a first-time drug offence. Kim K visited the White House to discussed prison reforms with the President.
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted a picture of the two in the Oval Office and wrote: “Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing.”

The reality television star has sought pardon for a drug offender, Alice Marie Johnson, who has served more than 20 years in prison already.
“I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offence,” Kardashian West said in a statement Wednesday night.
“We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she — and so many like her — will get a second chance at life.”
At the White House, the reality TV star also met Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner along with other officials.
