Kim Kardashian West meets with Donald Trump at the White House to 'discuss prison reform'

  • 31/05/2018

Kim Kardashian West has visited fellow reality TV star and US president Donald Trump at the White House.

The former Celebrity Apprentice star called their meeting "great" on Twitter, with a photo of him smiling beside the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

The meeting comes after months of conversation between Kardashian and Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, Jared Kushner, around the issue of prison reform.

Kardashian has been campaigning for the release of a 62-year-old great-grandmother called Alice Johnson, who is serving a life sentence for a first-time drug offense.

"If you think about a decision that you've made in your life and you get life without the possibility of parole for your first-time nonviolent offense, there's just something so wrong with that," Kardashian told Mic earlier this month. 

Johnson was 21 years into her prison term when the self-proclaimed 'internet breaker' discovered her story, and began forging a path to the White House to fight for her.

Kardashian told Mic that she had been "trying to bring her case to the president's desk and figure out how we can get her out".

Trump did not mention Johnson in his tweet.

Kardashian reportedly first contacted Ivanka Trump, who put her in touch with her husband, Kushner, who in turn arranged a meeting with the president.

In addition to the prison reform discussion, Kardashian's visit to the White House is likely exciting for another reason - she's previously stated: "White is actually one of my favourite colours. I have a white car. I love white."
