Kim Kardashian Finally Meets President Donald Trump to discuss prison reform



Kim Kardashian West met US President Trump at the White House on Wednesday in a bid to obtain a presidential pardon for 62-year-old Alice Marie Johnson, who is serving life without parole in the US state of Alabama for a first offence. 
US President Donald Trump after the meeting said he held a "great meeting" with reality star Kim Kardashian West about prison reform.
After the meeting, President Trump tweeted: "Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing."
Kardashian West had already held discussions with President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner about the Johnson case. 
Johnson was sentenced to life without parole in 1997 for money laundering and drugs conspiracy charges. Kardashian West has drawn attention to the case, and others, on social media. An online petition to grant Johnson clemency currently has more than 250,000 signatures.

The star went to her twitter handle to thank the President for his time, she wrote: "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 offense."
"We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her- will get a second chance at life."
