"Never say never" Kim Kardashian hints that she could run for president of the United States of America one day
No matter who you talk to, no matter what political party, people feel what’s right is right and that’s what Kim loves about politics. Looks like Kanye may have influenced her.
Kim Kardashian is all up for making politics an everyday affair in her life. In an interview on CNN’s The Van Jones Show, the reality star confessed that even though running for the office was not on her to-do list as of now, it was something that wasn't out of the picture. “never say never," she said when asked about running for president. Do we see a Kanye West's influence here? After all, he also wants to run for the president post. The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star further opened up about using her platform to help someone in need.
“I honestly saw that if I could use my platform just to do something for one person, that it opens the conversation for so much more and for other people to want to do the same thing,” she said. "If more people would just put their personal feelings aside and talk about really important issues that have to be discussed, then so much more can get done." Kim also dished on why she liked politics.
“No matter who you talk to, no matter what political party, people feel what’s right is right and that’s what I love about this, is that it can just be so bipartisan,” she said. This comes after Kim met President Donald Trump at the White House to talk about prison reforms. After the meeting, in a series of tweets, Trump announced that he would be pardoning some of the people who had been wrongly convicted but did not mention Alice Johnson's name (whom Kim had advocated for), a non-violent drug offender who was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 1996.
However, he later announced that he had granted clemency to the 63-year-old great-grandmother. “Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades. Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates,” an official statement issued by the White House, following news of commutation, stated.
Kim took to her Twitter to express her happiness and how it felt at the exact moment when she told Alice the good news. "The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories. Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget," she wrote. Kim even shared the post about her release and captioned it as "BEST NEWS EVER!!!!"
At the same time, she thanked Trump for his support. "So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has shown compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance," she wrote at that time.
