Following Kim Kardashian's personal plea to Trump at the White House, the president commuted Johnson's life sentence on Wednesday, and she was released from prison that same evening.

The world has changed considerably since Johnson was arrested, she noted, telling "CBS This Morning", "There are so much new buildings, and I noticed people on the phone a lot".

The two met last Wednesday, alongside Jared Kushner, and discussed whether Ms. Johnson should be released and if she has paid her debt to society.

Kim will most likely travel to Alice as she now adjusts to life outside the prison walls, but the meeting looks to be happening.

I feel like my life is starting over again.

"I have a lot of catching up to do with my family".

On Thursday, Trump tweeted a message to Johnson wishing her well.

Trump has also pardoned conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, former Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby and Kristian Saucier, a Navy sailor.

The reprieve will provide an unexpected new lifeline for Johnson, who once said that her family "told me that coming to visit me in prison is like visiting a grave site". "It was the most exhilarating feeling I've ever had".


"I want to say to President Trump, I am going to make you proud that you gave me this second chance in life".

Johnson was convicted in 1996 on non-violent related drug charges.

As clemency petitions work their way through the system, the president routinely denies the "vast majority" of requests, a White House official said.

Also, Kim Kardashian West will be meeting the lady she helped to free from prison.

Johnson was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, and appellate courts and the U.S. Supreme Court had denied her appeals.

She said both parents died while she was in prison.

Kardashian said the President shared the news that he granted Johnson's freedom in a phone call to the reality star. "This just isn't fair.' He knew that this was the right thing to do", Kim said.

Last week, Kardashian's meeting with Trump in the Oval Office was widely mocked on social media.
