Kim Kardashian West said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Monday night that she only had good things to say about President Trump after he granted her request to pardon 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson.

Mrs. West traveled to the White House in late May to ask Mr. Trump to pardon Ms. Johnson, who was serving 21 years of a lifetime sentence for a first-time nonviolent drug offense. Mrs. West said it only took one week before Mr. Trump pardoned the woman.

“I’m very grateful and I’m very hopeful that more good things are going to come out of our conversations,” the reality TV star told Jimmy Kimmel.

“I have nothing bad to say about the president. You know, he’s done something amazing,” she added. “I don’t agree with everything either. I had no idea what to expect in going in there and I was like, ‘Look, I’m going to be focused.’ It really turned my idea around in this category.”

Mrs. West also said her husband, rapper Kanye West’s admiration for Mr. Trump is more about the president’s style than his politics.

“To make it clear, when [Kanye and I] would talk about it and we would talk about policies, he doesn’t necessarily agree with [Mr. Trump’s] policies,” she said. “He likes his personality and how he made it to be president when everyone really underestimated him. [Kanye]’s not political, so he doesn’t really dig deep into what’s going on.”
