Kim Kardashians meeting with President Trump was far from a bust. The meeting actually went well, especially after it was announced on Wednesday that Alice Johnson was granted clemency.
63-year old Alice Johnson was serving life in prison without a eligibility for parole. She was serving for a non violent drug trafficking case. Now this was Johnson's first case and was accused of drug trafficking as well money laundering in Memphis. She has been imprisoned since 1996.
According to Johnson, she never sold drugs or even made drug deals, but allowed people to use her phone who were involved in the drug trafficking ring. Take a look at the tweet that caught Kim's eye and prompted her to get involved.

After Kim saw this, she decided to try to get a meeting with President Trump to hopefully grant Alice clemency, and one week later, Alice was granted clemency.
The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories. Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 6, 2018
Kim then spoke on hoping to get light shed on Prison reform with other organizations. The real question is, do you think that this will happen?
I hope to continue this important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 6, 2018
So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 6, 2018
