Kim Kardashian opens up about receiving criticism for meeting with Donald Trump

The reality star stayed in contact with the president


Kim Kardashian has opened up about receiving criticism for meeting with Donald Trump.

Last year the 38-year-old went to the White House to discuss prison reform and successfully secured clemency for Alice Johnson, who was serving a life sentence in prison for a first-time drug offence.

The mother-of-three received some criticism from fans for meeting up with and maintaining a relationship with Donald Trump, and she has now opened up about that experience.

Speaking on CNN’s Van Jones Show, Kim said: “So many people have would say to me, ‘Don’t go to the White House, your career will be over. Don’t go there.'”

“And I just kinda weighed the decision where it was like, to save a life, or to get maybe bad tweets about me or a bad news story for a few days.”

“I guarantee you the people sitting behind bars do not care who the president is. They just want that relief. And so if I could have done that, I don’t care,” she continued.

The KUWTK star went on to say that she regularly gets messages from people when there are issues going on with the president and said: “I think that people, I see on Twitter people writing me all the time, ‘Kim, do something, do this, do that,’ and I have been very honest with the administration.”

“I have been very honest with everyone, from Jared [Kushner] and Ivanka [Trump], to everyone in the White House about how I feel about immigration in particular and we’ve had the conversations.”

“The reality is, I can’t do everything. I’m not in that position and if I can change people’s lives in a different area, I have to focus on that and I have definitely voiced my opinion on other things and requested things in other areas.”
