UPDATED 5/30, 09:45 p.m. ET: The meeting of Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump has taken place and there are pictures to prove it went down.

Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing.

Kim, who was at the White House to discuss prison reform, also met with other officials, such as senior adviser Jared Kushner.

See original story below.

Kim Kardashian is meeting with that guy from the Apprentice at the White House Wednesday in an effort to secure a pardon for 62-year-old Alice Marie Johnson. Johnson, as Kardashian has previously discussed on social media, is currently serving a life sentence without parole for a firs-time, nonviolent drug offense.

Alice Marie Johnson has been in prison for 21 years for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.

The meeting, first reported by Vanity Fair Tuesday night, follows months of behind-the-scenes talks between Kardashian and Jared Kushner. Ahead of the meeting with the guy who insists the Central Park Five are guilty despite DNA evidence, Kardashian and her attorney will join Kushner in the West Wing for a prison reform discussion.


Earlier this month, Kardashian opened up to Mic about her dedication to securing Johnson's freedom. "If you think about a decision that you've made in your life and you get life without the possibility of parole for your first-time nonviolent offense, there's just something so wrong with that," she said.

Unfortunately, Wednesday's meeting falls on the heels of Kanye West's widely panned public toying with MAGA imagery and related ideology, a stance with which G.O.O.D. Music boss Pusha-T totally disagrees. "I'm totally against it," he said last week. "To me, the prison reform thing is so dear and near to me, right? It's something I know we can’t even tackle with Trump. So, there's nothing I even want to hear in regards to [Trump]."

According to the Vanity Fairreport, "there have been talks" about West making his own White House appearance at a later date. The nature of that possible meeting is entirely unclear.
