The meeting marked the first time the two had met in person since Kardashian West broke the news of Johnson's commutation to her via a telephone call to the prison.

"'You can go home now".

"I knew that she would've understood Alice, and she immediately was so receptive and so great", she added.

They ignored a shouted question from an American journalist about President Donald Trump's decision to halt joint U.S. Abe told reporters that Trump had clearly conveyed Japan's stance on the abduction issue to the North Korean leader.


When asked why she chose to champion Johnson's cause outside social media, Kardashian, who first shared Johnson's story with her 60 million Twitter followers in November, said she had tunnel vision.

Kardashian West, a 37-year-old mom of three, said she was in disbelief about her visit to the Oval Office, at the time thinking, "This is insane". She said she wants to continue working on pardoning and helping others whose stories are similar to Johnson's.

'It was wonderful. I'm so glad that she was the one who was able to deliver the news to me. Kardashian was then connected to Trump's husband, Jared Kushner, also a White House adviser, and a meeting with the president followed eventually.

"Everyone was saying that "if you don't get [clemency during the Obama presidency], it's not going to happen", Johnson said".

Johnson, 63, mirrored the sentiment, explaining, "I plan on continuing to magnify this issue. I started reading everything that I could about her, and everyone was amazed and I was amazed, too". I'm ready to meet Kim. "I'm telling you, I was dancing, I was dancing, I was jumping, I was screaming, I was doing everything". "Love you, Alice!" Johnson was sent to prison in 1996, 19 years before Snapchat introduced the filter options. "I don't have Facebook", she said.

Some people cheered as they walked out. "People have been asking me, 'Are you getting into politics?' Like, no".

"I hope maybe this inspires more people to talk to the people in power", Kardashian West said. "This, like, fulfilled my heart, and so since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?"

Meanwhile, Johnson's life was suddenly intertwined with one of the most famous stars in the world-one she had never heard of before.
