However, there are talks of him coming to the White House at a later date, according to Vanity Fair.

West met with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower in NY in December 2016.

According to New York Magazine, Kardashian learned of Johnson's case a year ago and has spoken with senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and Ivanka's husband, several times about the case.

Kim Kardashian has spent months talking to Jared Kushner, and it appears to have paid off. She's reportedly interested in wide prison reform; she's also seeking to free Cyntoia Brown, who was sentenced to 60 years for killing a man who she says was soliciting her for sex when she was 16 and forced into prostitution. Husband Kanye West will not be present either.

Johnson was jailed in 1997 for her role in a drug ring, her first offence, after she got involved with cocaine dealers following the loss of her job, her son, her marriage, and her home.

According to a report from Vanity Fair, West and her personal attorney will visit the White House on Wednesday before 4 p.m.to meet with Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and then with President Donald Trump to discuss prison reform. "So, there's nothing I even want to hear in regards to [Trump]".
