When asked about Trump's view on drug dealers, Kardashian West said Trump had displayed empathy when she spoke with him about Johnson's case.

That commutation came just days after Kardashian West, who said she became interested in Johnson after seeing a story about her months ago on Twitter, pleaded Johnson's case to Trump in the Oval Office.

Johnson said that she plans to advocate for other prisoners who deserve a second chance.

"I first said that I am here because I really want to know why you kicked Khloe [Kardashian] off The Apprentice, and he laughed and it broke the ice and then he got focused", Kardashian West quipped of her sister's time on Trump's reality competition show. "I started reading everything that I could about her".

"When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying, and everyone else was crying", Johnson said during her June 7 "Good Morning America" appearance. "And screams, and cries and we all just cried on the phone".

Yesterday Kim Kardashian flew from Los Angeles to Memphis to finally meet Alice Marie Johnson in person.

The celeb was met with mixed reactions after her visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with some calling Kim a "pawn" while others applauded her overcoming any ideological differences she has with the President for the better good. "It wasn't an instant thing". "It was a lot of work".

"To me this has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with people", Kardashian said, adding that she thinks the president's views on punishment for drug offences are starting to change. And everyone was amazed. "I was amazed, too".

Johnson believes the criticism around Trump's decision to commute Johnson's sentence for "only a political gain" is unfounded. "Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates".

The president says he is considering a long list of other clemency actions, including for former IL governor Rod Blagojevich, who is serving 14 years in prison for corruption, and celebrity homemaker Martha Stewart, who served about five months for insider financial trading.
