Kim Kardashian West met a great-grandmother serving a life sentence for a minor crime. Donald Trump has been pardoning people left and right, so the reality star’s trip to the White House could not have been better timed, but her request may have fallen on deaf ears.

Alice Marie Johnson’s legal team told CBS News that Kardashian West felt as if her meeting with Trump was very “positive.” Yet, all she has heard about a possible pardon was silence.

The New York Post printed its cover of Kardashian West and Trump on its cover and shared it via a tweet:

‘Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson. Today is for you.’

Johnson’s lawyer, Brittany Barnet,  told CBS News they appreciate Kardashian West’s efforts. They have also been in touch with the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner for “several months now.”

Barnett has some doubts about whether the president will pardon her client. She said:

‘We don’t know — what we are hoping to find out today. It’s unconscionable that she is serving a death sentence. We are grateful that Kim is using her platform to raise awareness and hope that everyone looks beyond Kim and sees that there is a woman about to die in prison.’

The attorney said Kardashian West saw a Mic interview about Johnson and “was not only moved to tears, but moved to action.” Barnett continued:

‘Our hope is that we get Miss Alice’s freedom — today is her 63rd birthday, her 21st birthday behind bars — so we are hoping that Trump realizes that there is no justifiable reason for Johnson to spend the rest of her life in prison.’

Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has taken on prison reform as one of his prime issues. His father, Charles Kushner, was sentenced to a federal prison for white-collar crimes. They included tax evasion and illegal campaign contributions. His son visited him every week.
