Kim Kardashian lashed out at critics calling her out for working with President Donald Trump. She has worked with the POTUS for criminal reform.
Kardashian worked with Trump for the release of Alice Walker last year. Walker had been in prison since 1996 for a first-time drug offense. Kardashian lobbied with the POTUS to get her released. Trump is very unpopular in California.
Kardashian told CNN’s Van Jones Show, “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.”
She added, “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 also told Jones that people write to her “every time there is an issue going on in the White House, which is pretty often.”
She explained, “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 and Ivanka to everyone in the White House about how I feel about immigration in particular and we’ve had the conversations.”
She said, “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.”
Kardashian is currently studying to become a lawyer and have more of an influence on criminal reform.
