Trump introduced Kim as a "good person" and one of the "most succesful people in the entertainment business," before applauding Kim on her quest to become a lawyer.

He also gave a shoutout to Kanye West and called the rapper, "a real friend of mine."

After taking the podium, Kim thanked Trump and praised Ivanka and Jared Kushner for getting her started on her quest for prison reform.

Kim spoke on visiting different prisons and learning about the justice system, and admitted she had no clue about the difficulties convicted felons faced upon release from prison while trying to reenter society.

She also announced a ride share program that will provide vouchers to convicts that will allow them to get free rides to job interviews, as well as visit family members. She said the main focus is to try and reduce recidivism.
