Kim Kardashian celebrates Trump endorsing prison reform legislation she lobbied for

Kim Kardashian celebrated President Trump backing prison reform legislation that she lobbied for on Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

During the episode titled Fire Escape, the 38-year-old reality star met with Alice Johnson —a former drug trafficker whom she had successfully lobbied President Trump to free back in 2018— to cook a meal together.

Johnson's two sisters joined the Kardashians for the cooking session held at Kendall Jenner's house as fires raged around Kim's home and other family members.

They bemoaned the lack of avenues and support for prisoners seeking to rehabilitate their lives.


'When I was pleading your case to the president, I was like, ''She has family that she can live with, and she has job offers. So that was a huge thing I had to say ''She has a job offer''.' Kim told Alice.

There's so many people in Alice's situation that really do deserve a second chance, and that's one of the main reasons I'm fighting for this First Step Act,' she said in a confessional referencing the bipartisan bill that Trump endorsed.

Later in the show, aspiring lawyer Kim attended a Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles, where she was interviewed by attorney Van Jones, a CNN host.
