Exclusive: Kim Kardashian West speaks out on meeting with Trump about Alice Johnson

• By Jake Horowitz and Kendall Ciese

"I think that he really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice," Kardashian West told Mic in an exclusive interview after the meeting. "He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively."

Kardashian West sat down with Trump in the Oval Office alongside her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, to ask him to grant clemency for Johnson, who has been imprisoned for over 21 years in Aliceville, Alabama, for a drug-trafficking charge.

Kardashian West has been working behind the scenes for months to secure Johnson's release. She first became aware of the story after watching a Mic Opinion video in October.
