President Donald Trump wished Alice Johnson well in life after commuting her life sentence at the request of reality TV star Kim Kardashian West.
Good luck to Alice Johnson. Have a wonderful life!

“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,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a #Wednesday statement.
President Trump saved Alice Johnson’s life today. We are extremely grateful and hope the President continues to use his clemency power to save lives,” her attorney said in a statement after Trump’s commutation.
Kardashian West met with Trump in the Oval Office recently to plead Johnson’s case. Kardashian-West first learned about Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for leading a multi-million dollar cocaine ring in the early 1990s, on Twitter. She has served more than 21 years in federal prison.
