Kim Kardashian says Kanye West’s support of Trump helped free Alice Johnson

Johnson had been serving almost 22 years in prison when her sentence was commuted.

Kardashian also opened up Sunday about staying married to the rapper despite their different outlooks on politics and social issues.

“I let him [West] be who he wants to be,” Kardashian said. “I let him have his own views and opinions, even if they’re different than mine. I grew up in a household where…we would always just talk about it and be open about it and it was really OK to have different views. For me, I think it’s just about having an open mind.”

She added that she and West have conversations in private to understand each other’s views.

Kardashian said she will continue to speak out on issues she’s passionate about.

“I’ll find something that I believe in, and I’ve figured out how to use my voice,” the mother of three said. “The bigger goal is to get these bills passed that really change the laws to make the distinction between crack and cocaine completely separate, and just getting people out [of prison].”

“Sentencing reform, bail reform — there’s so much,” she added.
