Kim Kardashian thanks Donald Trump for granting Alice Marie Johnson clemency


Kim Kardashian is expressing her gratitude to President Trump for agreeing to grant Alice Marie Johnson clemency.

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, who met with Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner at the White House just last week to advocate for Johnson, took to Twitter to react to the news.

After initially calling it the "BEST NEWS EVER," Kardashian waited another 30 minutes or so to elaborate on her thoughts.

"So grateful to [Donald Trump], Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson," she tweeted. "Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance."

"I hope to continue this important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition," she added.

Alice Marie Johnson has been serving a life sentence without parole in Aliceville, Alabama, for a first-time nonviolent drug offense. Kardashian had become her champion since finding out about her story through Twitter last year.

Kardashian told Mic that, when she met with the president, he "really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice. He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively."
