Kim Kardashian details her disagreements with President Trump over immigration
But in a new interview with New York Times, she said she cannot understand why people felt like she shouldn’t have gone there when there is important work to be done.
She also admitted she ‘speaks up’ about things she doesn’t agree with, such as immigration.
‘I speak up when things are not as they should be’: Kim Kardashian detailed her disagreements with President Trump over immigration after the air worked together on prison reform
Kim said: ‘I focus on prison reform and the President has done amazing things in prison reform. I will also speak up when I feel like something is not how I feel like the world should be and that could be immigration or other things.
‘I’m very focused, there’s a lot that we have to get done in prison reform and I believe I will be more beneficial if I just focus on that at the moment. So I’m grateful for that relationship in that area and I focus on that.’
‘But that was a big thing where so many people advised me, “Don’t go to the White House.” And that didn’t make sense to me because I was like, if someone can get out of prison and get their life back versus my reputation of going to the White House — when there is only one person on this planet that can make the decision and that would be the president.’

During the interview, Kim, who can earn a million dollars per Instagram post and has 151million followers, talked about the impact of social media on mental health.
She agrees that ‘taking the likes away’ would be ‘beneficial for people’ and the notion that this might happen makes her really happy.
Kim visited the White House in July, thought to be about seeking justice for rapper A$AP Rocky, who was jailed in Sweden on July 3.
Important cause: She’s previously made visits to the capital to lobby the pardon of Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving life without parole for drug offenses
The month before, Kim shared photos from her visit to Trump’s workplace in Washington D.C. where she dressed in a green power suit and gave a speech about criminal justice reform issues.
She’s previously made visits to the capital to lobby the pardon of Alice Marie Johnson, who was serving life without parole for drug offenses.
Johnson was sentenced to life in prison in 1997 for committing a first-time nonviolent drug crime in Memphis, news which Kim first heard about on Twitter.
Kim must also complete 60 college credits and then work as an apprentice at a law firm in San Francisco with the intention to take the Bar Exam in 2022.
For the greater good: Kim would also like Instagram to ban likes – she has 151million followers and can command a million dollars per post
