Kim Kardashian left the home with Alice Marie Johnson behind her.

Kardashian West flew into the Memphis airport around 1 p.m. and went to a house in Southaven, Mississippi for a meeting with Johnson and an interview with Hoda Kotb with the "Today" show.

Kim Kardashian West and Alice Marie Johnson, the woman President Donald Trump freed from life in federal prison, say they won't stop advocating for other people serving long sentences for non-violent drug offenses.

Trump commuted her sentence last week, just days after meeting with Kardashian West in the Oval Office. But Wednesday was their first in-person meeting. I was dancing. I was jumping. "I think to some people it might seem like, 'OK, Kim made a phone call to the President, showed up, ' [but] we had been in talks and working on this for seven months", the 37-year-old reality star explained. "I did not know her name".

"I feel incredibly blessed", Johnson said. Are you ready to go home?' When she said that, I went into full fledge Pentecostal holy dance!

While we were outside Kardashian was showing Johnson the ropes on snapchat having fun with filters and at one-point Kardashian said love you Alice and Alice said love you Kim.

Willow Smith Confesses She Saw Her Mom And Dad Having Sex
Deciding when and how to teach kids about sex is one of the longest-standing and most controversial parenting conundrums. Jada Pinkett-Smith has made some upfront revelations over the past couple weeks through her Red Table Talks .

"I knew that she would've understood Alice, and she immediately was so receptive and so great", she added.

The celeb was met with mixed reactions after her visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, with some calling Kim a "pawn" while others applauded her overcoming any ideological differences she has with the President for the better good.

The President's daughter connected Kardashian with her husband, Jared Kushner, who took an interest in Johnson's case, according to Kardashian West. "I started reading everything that I could about her and everyone was amazed and I was amazed too".

Before her release was announced, Johnson wrote an essay for CNN that expresses her faith and her gratitude for the help she received: "Some refer to prison as a place where hope dies".

"I plan on continuing to magnify this issue", Johnson said.

Johnson was convicted in 1996 of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine and spent a third of her life in prison.
