Kardashian West tweeted that her phone call with Alice Johnson was "a moment [she] will never forget".

On Wednesday, President Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, who is a nonviolent drug offender, has been serving life in prison for 21 years.

Kardashian West told the Mic that while meeting with Trump, he "really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice".

"Ms Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behaviour and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades", the statement reads.

Attorney Brittany K. Barnett, another member of Johnson's legal team, thanked Trump in a statement that said, "Life in prison without the possibility of parole screams that a person is beyond hope, beyond redemption".

"My plan is to start work, I already have a job secured", Johnson said, "and my plan is also to work hard on helping to change some of these laws".

While in prison, where she became a grandmother and great-grandmother, Johnson enrolled in educational and vocational programmes, volunteered to help sick and dying prisoners and helped coordinate the prison's Special Olympics.

"But today is about Alice Johnson and we are elated the Kim Kardashian has done what others have not", she said.
