"I do believe she would still be in prison," Kardashian West said in an episode of "The Alec Baldwin Show" that aired Sunday. "We've [spoken] about this a few times. Alice always says if it wasn't for Kanye speaking up in support of Trump, then she would still be in jail."

Trump granted Johnson clemency in June after Kardashian West visited the White House and asked Trump to pardon her.

West, meanwhile, has been publicly voicing support for Trump. He has often worn one of Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hats and earlier this year wrote on Twitter that Trump was his "brother," saying they are both "dragon energy."

Earlier this month, Trump hosted West for a meeting inside the Oval Office. West said during the meeting that Trump is "on his hero’s journey right now" and embraced the president during the meeting, hugging him and saying, "I love this guy."

Trump on multiple occasions has taken to Twitter to praise West for supporting him, including last month, when Trump wrote that West's performance on "Saturday Night Live" was "great."

"Like many, I don’t watch Saturday Night Live (even though I past hosted it) - no longer funny, no talent or charm. It is just a political ad for the Dems. Word is that Kanye West, who put on a MAGA hat after the show (despite being told 'no'), was great. He’s leading the charge!" Trump tweeted.
