"Because I felt like she's was a good person-you can see that in her", Kardashian said in the exclusive interview.

Ms Johnson was released from jail yesterday, when she was immortalised on cameras while running towards her family members and hugging them in Aliceville, Alabama.

"I would tell President Trump thank you so much". She said she turned her life around in prison and decided that she wasn't "going to just do time or let time do me". Her case became a rallying cry in recent years for criminal-justice reform advocates who have held her up as an example of overzealous drug sentencing, and the epitome of a reformed, rehabilitated prisoner ready to re-enter society.

According to a 2013 ACLU report on people sentenced to life without parole for nonviolent offenses, Johnson got involved with people selling drugs out of desperation, after she lost her job and was unable to pay her bills.

The president has also signaled that he could similarly favor lifestyle guru Martha Stewart, who went to jail for making false statements in an insider trading case, and commute the prison sentence of Rod Blagojevich, a former governor of IL convicted of corruption.

Trump recently pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted of a campaign finance violation. And he granted a posthumous pardon to boxing's first black heavyweight champion, which had been championed by actor Sylvester Stallone.

Speaking about how she initially arranged her meeting with Trump, Kim said in the CNN interview that she first made contact with Ivanka, Trump's daughter, and several months later was able to meet with POTUS.

"I trust and hope and ask to President Trump to pardon him", Simona Mangiante Papadopoulos told Trump's favorite network.

"I don't believe that there should be a non-violent offender like myself sentenced to life", she said.

President Trump commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson after Kim Kardashian West met with him at the White House last week to discuss the case. "Once Alice's family joined the call, the tears never stopped flowing". Johnson said she wanted to thank the president for giving her "another chance" at life.

"I've been in communication with the White House and trying to bring her case to the president's desk and figure out how we can get her out", she said of Johnson, who has spent over two decades behind bars.

Ms Johnson received a life sentence in 1996, when she was found guilty for being part of a cocaine ring.
