Kim Kardashian says she has a ‘good relationship’ with Trump and the White House: ‘They have been extremely helpful in prison reform’
The 39-year-old Skims entrepreneur has recently been campaigning for prison reform in the United States, and she has revealed she is currently on good terms with the embattled president and his administration.
Kim — who has already successfully campaigned for the release of Alice Johnson, a grandmother serving a life sentence for drug charges — told Australia’s Sunday Project over the weekend: ‘So far I think it is like 34 people I have helped now release. I have a good relationship with the White House.’

‘They have been extremely helpful in prison reform and justice reform,’ she continued.
‘That’s been an amazing transformation, of seeing — at the beginning of the presidency, maybe [Mr. Trump] wasn’t so open to the idea of any prison reform, and completely changing and meeting a lot of amazing people on the way and having a change of heart has been a beautiful journey for me to watch as well.’
The brunette beauty is married to rap star and born-again Christian Kanye West, who himself has long been an outspoken supporter of Trump.
Meanwhile, Kim also claimed that she can ’empathize’ with the struggles of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Kardashian said she can understand why the British royals are so keen to maintain a degree of privacy in their lives.
‘I think their journey is extremely personal, with what [ Harry’s] mother experienced and how her life was so affected by the spotlight and by paparazzi,’ Kim explained.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have recently received a fair amount of flack for bemoaning their position as the target of immense public scrutiny, saying that they were looking forward to some ‘time off’ this holiday season.

‘I don’t think anyone can really understand what that’s like except for them,’ she said.
‘But I think as I’m older and as I have kids, what I would want for them is just the safest place.’
‘I can definitely empathize with their… need for having a secure, safe place and taking time for themselves, and having privacy when they need it,’ she concluded.
