On Wednesday, Kardashian and a newly freed Johnson met for the first time. I said to her, 'Is there anything we can do?
Kim Kardashian West, who recently helped secure the freedom of 63-year-old Alice Johnson, said she believes President Donald Trump is starting to change his attitude toward non-violent drug offenders serving lengthy prison terms.
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.
After her initial opening wisecrack, Kardashian West says she and the commander in chief "got focused". I was dancing. I was jumping. "I mean I already knew just by talking to you on the phone and just seeing you in videos, but I mean you are everything and more than I ever thought". "I knew that she would have understood Alice, and she immediately was so receptive and so great".
"Thank you is not big enough", Johnson said.
Later, when Kardashian West called with the clemency news, Johnson said she "went into a full-fledged, Pentecostal holy dance". "I can't stop", she said.
While we were outside Kardashian was showing Johnson the ropes on snapchat having fun with filters and at one-point Kardashian said love you Alice and Alice said love you Kim. "I didn't know Kim", she admitted. She said she'd spend the rest of her life thanking Kardashian West and others who helped her. "And everyone was amazed and I was amazed too".
Trump wished Johnson a "wonderful life" in a tweet following her release.
'I hope to continue important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition'. "This, like, fulfilled my heart, and so since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?" "As soon as I found out who she was, I started getting every magazine I could find", Johnson, who was incarcerated for 22 years, said.
