KIM KARDASHIAN joined President Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump at the White House yesterday to talk criminal justice reform.
Kim Kardashian, 38, headed to the White House yesterday to deliver a speech about criminal justice.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s reality star, who is currently studying for a law degree, joined the President of the United States and his daughter Ivanka Trump at the Washington event to make a special announcement.
Donald Trump, 73, gave the American star a warm introduction as he welcomed her onto the stage to talk about a new initiative.
He said: “I’d like to invite up a very special guest, and a powerful advocate for not only justice reform, but just a good person and I hear she’s starting to study law, she’s also one of the most successful people in the entertainment business, soon she’ll be one of the most successful lawyers.”
Kim announced a new ride-sharing program which will help former prisoners get free transportation to job interviews, work and other events.
Following her appearance at the White House, she tweeted: “Since the passage of the First Step Act in December, I’ve been speaking with people coming home from prison and learning about the challenges they are facing.”
She continued: “While I have been able to offer support to some of the individuals I have met, the obstacles to success are an everyday struggle for thousands and more needs to be done.”
Thanking the 37-year-old Advisor to the President, she added: “Thank you @IvankaTrump for helping me to start this amazing journey of fighting for people who truly deserve a second chance!”
The First Step Act, which was signed into law in December, aims to reform the federal prison system and help prisoners avoid re-offending.
Kim cut a stylish figure at yesterday’s East Room event in a dark petrol blue trouser suit which she teamed with a pair of pointy heels.
The mother-of-four wore her hair in a sleek bob and wore make-up in natural tones.
The proud television personality said she was “honored to be a part of the announcement” at the White House.
