President Donald Trump may have postponed his big meeting with North Korea ruler Kim Jong Un but meet with another famous, Kim Kardashian West who got a matching front name ‘Kim’.
“Great meeting with @Kim Kardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing,” the president, 71, captioned with a pic, Kardashian-West standing next to Trump in the Oval Office on Twitter, Wednesday.

The reality star went to White House to personally discuss a potential pardon Alice Marie Johnson who has already spend more than 2 decades for a first-time, non-violence drugs offense.
Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law has also been speaking about the same case for months.
Kardashian is very positive to the recent meeting and hopes after the meeting that president called “great meeting” Johnson will get an excuse for her first-time drugs offense.
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.

Kardashian first knew about Johnson’s story after a short video and a post on social media.
62 years old Alice Maria Johnson was arrested on drugs charges back in 1993 along with other 15 people. Among them, 10 of her co-defendants testified against her and they received from the imprisonment of no jail.
In 1997, Johnson was found guilty of money laundering and drug conspiracy charges. Though it was her first offense, she was given lifetime prison without parole.
During Barack Obama presidency, she pleas for clemency for 3 time but was rejected all time.
