Kim Kardashian met President Donald Trump in the Oval Office last week.

The pair came together to discuss prison reform and in particular, the case of Alice Marie Johnson. 

Johnson was jailed in Tennessee in 1996.

She convicted on non-violent charges of attempted possession of drugs and money-laundering along with 15 others.

During their meeting Kim asked the President to grant clemency to Ms Johnson, who was handed a life sentence.

Late last night, President Trump commuted Johnson's sentence and she was released.

An emotional video of her running to family members outside the prison has gone viral.

Kim took to Twitter to thank the President and his team.

She also revealed that she had spoken to Ms. Johnson since her release over the phone.

And Kim's not stopping there. She hopes to continue this work and help other inmates in similar situations.
