"I think that he really spent the time to listen to our case that we’re making for Alice," Kardashian told Mic on Thursday. "He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively, I hope."

Johnson has so far spent more than 20 years in prison after being convicted of nonviolent drug conspiracy charges. Kardashian reportedly heard about her case in a Mic video, and has since advocated for her release.

Kardashian has reportedly been in talks with Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Kushner, who is overseeing the administration's prison reform efforts.
