Kardashian West, woman Trump freed say they won't stop now

This will be the first time the KKW beauty mogul will meet with Johnson, but the 63-year-old said that she first heard the news of her commutation from Kardashian.

"I did not know her name, I didn't know Kim", Alice Marie Johnson said on the "Today" show, moments after meeting Kardashian on the show.

Kardashian and Johnson are scheduled to appear on NBC's Today show together this Thursday June 14.

Kardashian met Trump in the Oval Office to make her pitch to get Johnson released.

The two met for the first time on Wednesday and before sitting down for the interview.

"No, I'm still doing me", she said.

Kim added: 'At first I thought she knew because the news was starting to break and we had to get her on the phone.

Responding to the decision to grant clemency, Kim tweeted: "BEST NEWS EVER". "I knew that she would have understood Alice, and she immediately was so receptive and so great".

Ahead of the game, according to ATP, Nadal said that he will have to give his best against a player (Thiem) who is equally great. And he increased the tempo further, consigning Thiem to defeat in his first major final when the Austrian sent a return long.

She said a simple thank you to Kardashian West isn't enough. When she said that I went into full-fledged Pentecostal holy dance.

When asked why she chose to champion Johnson's cause outside social media, Kardashian, who first shared Johnson's story with her 60 million Twitter followers in November, said she had tunnel vision. She said, "I love this woman".

Kardashian West told the programme: "I mean, I think to some people it might seem like, "okay, Kim made a phone call to the president, showed up".

The President's daughter connected Kardashian with her husband, Jared Kushner, who took an interest in Johnson's case, according to Kardashian West.

After commuting Johnson's life sentence and granting a posthumous pardon to boxing's first black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson, at the request of actor Sylvester Stallone, Trump invited professional athletes with friends behind bars to bring those cases to his attention as well. "I started reading everything that I could about her and everyone was amazed and I was amazed too". And I can't stop.

"I plan on continuing to magnify this issue".

Johnson was convicted in 1996 of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine and spent a third of her life in prison.
