Of The Best Reactions To Kim Kardashian Meeting With President Trump

She appeared to preview the visit on her Twitter feed, writing: "Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson".

"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 West told the outlet. She's reportedly interested in wide prison reform; she's also seeking to free Cyntoia Brown, who was sentenced to 60 years for killing a man who she says was soliciting her for sex when she was 16 and forced into prostitution.

Others joked that Kardashian was probably smarter than Trump - and since prison reform is urgently needed - their meeting might be a good thing after all.

President Trump's meeting with the reality show starlet to discuss the weighty issue of prison reform spawned a collection of poignant and hilarious commentary on social media.

Kardashian West and Trump also posed together for a photo in the Oval Office.

Kim Kardashian West is making headlines today - and it's not because of an Instagram photo, an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" or her multiple business ventures.

But Mr. Kushner has encountered opposition from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a hard-liner who previous year began reversing the Obama administration's efforts to ease penalties, like mandatory minimum sentences, for some nonviolent drug violations.

China slams USA for 'sudden flip-flops' in trade policy
Hua stressed Beijing is not afraid of engaging in a trade war, and will take "forceful" measures if the tariffs are imposed. The White House has said it will impose 25% tariffs on $50bn worth of Chinese imports "shortly" after mid-June.

The meeting was the reported culmination of Kardashian's several months of behind-the-scenes work advocating for clemency for Johnson, 63, who will die in prison if the president doesn't grant the pardon.

The New York Post was hoping for a few laughs when they released their new cover featuring Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump, but the women of "The View" were hard pressed to see the humor in it on Thursday. Today is for you ✨. Johnson is now sentenced to life in prison at the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama. Perhaps. Considering Trump's friendly relationship with her husband, West, and his affinity for celebrities who treat him well, it's likely.

As if that wasn't enough, West recently suggested he would be running for president in 2024. The goals, Kardashian has said, are to get Alice Marie Johnson's case in front of Trump and to secure a presidential pardon.

First, Trump granted a posthumous pardon to former boxing heavyweight champion Jack Johnson - the first black man to achieve that status - after his great-great niece and movie star Sylvester Stallone submitted pleas. The 1994 indictment describes dozens of deliveries and drug transactions, many involving Johnson.

She was sentenced to life in prison in 1997. "I'm totally against it", he said last week.

The Johnson family first sought clemency for Alice, unsuccessfully, from President Barack Obama, gathering letters of recommendations from her warden and from members of Congress.
