Her release came after Trump commuted her life sentence on Wednesday, one week after Kardashian pleaded her case during an Oval Office meeting with the President.

"If you think about a decision that you've made in your life and you get life without the possibility of parole for your first-time nonviolent offense, there's just something so wrong with that", Kim told Mic in May.

Kim's low-key approach to Kanye's birthday will no doubt come as a surprise to fans as she stocked a plane with Japanese snacks and magazines for his 40th birthday previous year and made him guess where they were going.

Immediately after announcing the news, Kardashian again went on Twitter, vowing to help others in the same way she helped Johnson.

Johnson is a great-grandmother who has never met her grandchildren or great-grandchildren.

The White House said Alice Johnson had been a model prisoner and worked hard to rehabilitate herself.

President Barack Obama did not intervene in the case during his eight years in office because the Justice Department recommended denying Johnson's request for a commutation.

"BEST NEWS EVER!" Kardashian tweeted Wednesday. She was convicted on charges of attempted possession of cocaine, conspiracy to possess cocaine, and money laundering, according to the nonprofit Can-Do.

She added: 'I hope to continue this important work by working together with organizations who have been fighting this fight for much longer than I have and deserve the recognition'. She admitted that she didn't hear it until last minute adding, "He might say things that might get misinterpreted and people don't see the context behind it, but I always know his heart".

Kardashian West tweeted that calling Johnson to tell her that she was free is a moment she will never forget.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a signing ceremony for the "VA (Veterans Affairs) Mission Act of 2018" in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington, U.S., June 6, 2018.

The commutation, which is different than a pardon, puts a renewed focus on the Trump administration's push for prison and sentencing reform.

The White House noted that letters of support for clemency had been received from Johnson's warden, case manager and vocational training instructor. In 1996, she was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Kardashian West also discussed criminal justice reform with Mr Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
