Kim Kardashian praised by President Donald Trump for sharing her experience advocating for criminal justice reform in the United States on Thursday.
Kim Kardashian talks about the experience and the work which almost put her in trouble while visiting one Kevin Cooper, a death row inmate in the San Quentin Prison. Kevin Cooper was convicted of four murders that occurred in the Chino Hills area of California in 1983, and his case is one of those Mrs West is looking at as she continues her law program and being an advocate of criminal Justice system reform.
She was reported to be under investigation by authorities, after she released some photos from her prison visit to see Kevin Cooper and afterwards, shared some photos she took inside the San Quentin Prison in California the report had said. But nothing has been said or reported on the said allegation, before this visit to speak on prison reform.
The reality TV Queen who recently welcomed a newborn with husband Kanye West, spoke at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in front of a packed crowd as President Trump unveiled the recently passed First Step Act, which stands for Formerly Incarcerated Reenter Society Transformed Safely Transitioning Every Person Act.
In the video shared online, President Trump introduced Kim Kardashian as a “good person” and one of the “most successful people in the entertainment business,” before applauding Kim on her quest to become a lawyer.
He also gave a shoutout to Kanye West and called the rapper, “a real friend of mine.”
After taking the podium, Kim thanked Trump and praised Ivanka and Jared Kushner for getting her started on her quest for prison reform.
Kim who has helped free some prisoners who are mostly African-American spoke on visiting different prisons and learning about the justice system and admitted she had no clue about the difficulties convicted felons faced upon release from prison while trying to reenter society.
She also announced a ride share program that will provide vouchers to convicts that will allow them to get free rides to job interviews, as well as visit family members. She said the main focus is to try and reduce recidivism.
After her speech, Kim received a standing ovation from the crowd, and President Trump followed up with a glowing review of the star.
He also mentioned Kim assisting the legal team working on prison reform, and quipped, “She’s the highest paid assistant in history there’s never been anything like it.”
