The 37-year-old reality TV star is set to visit NBC's "Today" show along with Johnson on Thursday, Us Weekly reported. Trump granted clemency to Johnson on June 6, a week after the White House meeting.

Talking to Good Morning America on June 7, Johnson said: 'When Kim told me that I was being released, I started jumping and screaming and crying, and everyone else was crying'. "I was screaming. I was doing everything".

"Kim, what did it sound like from your end?"

The socialite revealed she broke the ice with Trump by saying, "I'm here because I want to know why you kicked Khloe off 'The Apprentice, '" referring to her sister Khloe Kardashian who was on the president's former reality show in 2009. "I love this lady", Johnson said in response as they embraced.

After her initial opening wisecrack, Kardashian West says she and the commander in chief "got focused". "Everything was going so bad for her, and she got desperate".

She explained she was in a dark place because she was unable to provide for her children, which led to her involvement with "illegal activities". "This is crazy. This is just insane", said Kardashian, who brought her personal attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, to the meeting.

This will be the first time the KKW beauty mogul will meet with Johnson, but the 63-year-old said that she first heard the news of her commutation from Kardashian.

Last week, an emotional Johnson marveled at her freedom after more than two decades behind bars, grateful for a second chance - and craving seafood. "I did not know her name". I'm ready to meet Kim. As soon as I found out who she was, I started getting every magazine I could find. "And everyone was amazed and I was amazed too".

"I hope this inspires more people to talk to the people in power", Kardashian said. She's working on living out her thank you by helping others. Trump even recently proposed executing drug dealers responsible for trafficking large quantities of drugs. "The thing that [Alice was] convicted of, he's gone so far as to say that he believes the death penalty is appropriate in some of these cases".

The wife of Kayne West also shared her recollection of the emotional moment, telling Twitter the call "will forever be one of my best memories" and 'a moment I will never forget'. "This, like, fulfilled my heart, and so since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?"
