Kim Kardashian West said she believes President Donald Trump is changing his mind on his tough stance toward drug dealers.

She pressed Trump at the White House two weeks ago to get him to commute the life sentence of 63-year-old Alice Johnson, who was convicted of non-violent drug crimes in the 1990s.

Kardashian West said when she spoke with Trump about Johnson's case, she "saw compassion" from him.

Kim Kardashian West, who recently helped secure the freedom of 63-year-old Alice Johnson, said she believes President Donald Trump is starting to change his attitude toward non-violent drug offenders serving lengthy prison terms.

Last Wednesday, Trump commuted Johnson's life sentence, just one week after Kardashian West made a well-publicized trip to the White House to press Trump in person for the clemency.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Why some countries are more corrupt than othersSee Also:Michael Cohen's lawyers are reportedly abandoning him, and the odds of his flipping have now gone 'through the roof'Rudy Giuliani's son reportedly can't enter the West Wing without an escort now, even though Trump apparently ordered his promotionTrump calls media America's 'biggest enemy' in angry tweet about North Korea summit coverageSEE ALSO: Trump has granted clemency to Alice Johnson, freeing the 63-year-old grandmother whose case was championed by Kim Kardashian
