Kim Kardashian-West says she feels “hopeful” after her meeting with President Donald Trump about prison reform.

The reality star visited the White House yesterday (May 30) where she is reportedly asking for the pardon of 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson. The grandmother is serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence.

“Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson. Today is for you,” Kardashian-West tweeted before the meeting. After her visit to the White House, she tweeted, “I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. 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.”


She then added, “We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she —and so many like her—will get a second chance at life.” You can see those tweets below.

President Trump also tweeted a photo of himself and Kardashian-West in the Oval Office, captioning the image: “Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing.” You can see it below.


Meanwhile, Michael Moore seems to be teasing an upcoming project about the President. Writing on Twitter yesterday (May 30), Moore posted an old clip of himself on TV with Trump. Guests are seen discussing Moore’s 1989 documentary Roger & Me – a film looked at the regional economic impact of a number of auto plants closing in Moore’s Michigan hometown, Flint, at the hands of Roger Smith.

While praising the doc, Trump says: “If I was Roger I wouldn’t have liked it, but I enjoyed it.” He then goes on to add: “I hope [Moore] never does one [a documentary] on me.”
