Kim Kardashian met Donald Trump at White House to discuss prison reform

Kim Kardashian Meeting With Trump to Discuss Pardoning Alice Marie Johnson

Kushner, who is a senior White House advisor, has prioritised prison reform and has been having "back-channel talks" with Kim for months, according to reports. She was wearing the same black suit when she attended the Oval Office meeting earlier in the day, in which she meant to discuss prison reform and a pardon for incarcerated first-time drug offender Alice Marie Johnson.

Let's get checking out a bunch of times Kylie Jenner proved she was the Queen of selfies.

"I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon", the reality television star tweeted after the meeting.

Reportedly, Kim asked the president to pardon a woman named Alice Marie Johnson, who supposedly is facing a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense. Kardashian West appeared to preview the visit on her Twitter feed, writing: "Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson".

Alyssa Milano has accused the New York Post of "unacceptable sexism" for a recent headline regarding Kim Kardashian's meeting with Donald Trump.

Gutfeld called Acosta "CNN's Frown Prince" and said he may have forgotten his interview with musician John Legend, who visited the Obama White House.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Kardashian was visiting the White House but would not confirm the people with whom she was meeting. The star hired her personal legal team to represent Johnson after watching a 2013 documentary that chronicled her experience in prison.

Kardashian West was set to meet with advisor Jared Kushner, who is tasked with overseeing efforts to reform the USA prison system.

However, if Trump were to grant Alice clemency, it would go against his approach to drugs so far.

Karrin Vasby Anderson, an associate professor of communication studies at Colorado State University whose research has documented the "pornification" of USA media, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that she is not surprised by the reactions to Kardashian's White House visit.

Of course, some Twitter commentators appreciated Kardashian's effort in attempting to promote prison reform with Trump, an item that has not been high on Trump's priority list.

While Kardashian was a known supporter of Hilary Clinton during the 2016 United States election, her husband Kanye West has been vocal in his support for Trump, repeatedly wearing "Make America Great Again" merchandise and tweeting his controversial views. "Today is for you", Kardashian tweeted about Johnson before the meeting. "Today is for you".
