When Kim Kardashian made the controversial decision to go to the White House and speak to President Donald Trump about the prison reform, she was flooded with tons of hate messages, and she became the subject of international headlines. But she was reportedly unbothered by all of this.
She recently discussed with journalist Van Jones at Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit, and she spoke about her famous meeting with Donald Trump.
She said that she first reached out to Ivanka Trump who connected her to her husband, Jared Kushner.
‘He has been amazing. He has fully listened,’ Kim said. ‘Ivanka was amazing in really connecting me. And we really worked together as a team to present Alice’s case.’
When she was asked about her collaboration with Trump, a man who we all know is hated by many these days, here’s what she answered:
‘I did consider the fact that I would get a lot of backlash if I went to the White House.’
She also explained, ‘For me, if it’s a life versus my reputation. People talk about me all day long; I didn’t care. What more could they say about me, seriously? When I outweighed the options of bad stories about me that would probably last a week in this news cycle, versus saving someone’s life, that wasn’t an option.’
Just recently, for Thanksgiving, Kim shared her gratitude for the fact that Alice Johnson was at home and able to spend the holiday as a free woman with her family.
