Kim Kardashian revealed that she doesn’t care about the backlash she received for working with former President Donald Trump on criminal justice reform in an interview with Bari Weiss.
“I really don’t care about criticism,” Kardashian told Weiss. “I mean, my reputation on someone’s life? Destroy me then. I do not really care. It’s not even an option. And he did the right thing.”
Weiss noted that Kardashian helped “turn around” Trump’s support for the First Step Act, which reformed federal prisons and sentencing laws. Kardashian’s conversation with Trump also helped reduce the sentence for Alice Marie Johnson, who spent more than two decades in prison for non-violent drug charges.
“I just want to do the right thing; I don’t really care about politics at all,” said Kardashian. “It’s really about the people inside and if I can do anything — whether it’s Obama, Biden, Trump, I’m willing to work with anyone. It’s not really about being liked. If I can change someone’s life, it’s for me. ”
Kardashian also talked about a time that Kanye West, from whom she is divorcing, wore a MAGA hat while performing on SNL. She admitted she was “worried” about West wearing the hat and didn’t want him to.
“I was very neutral, but that night I was very strong with him, and argued with him like, ‘You have to take that hat off,’” said Kardashian. “And now looking back, I think, why? why does he have to take it off if that’s what he believes “.
When asked about her political affiliation, Kardashian said she sided with the Democrats on social issues but agreed with the Republicans on taxes. “I am a combination of the two,” she said.
Ahead of the 2020 election, some predict that Trump will gain more support from black Americans because of the policies he has adopted that favor the black community.

“We spoke with Terrance Woodbury, a young African-American voter. He has been saying for months that President Trump has been very strict with African-American men,” Simmons added.
Simmons, a veteran of the presidential campaigns of Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, said Trump’s friendship with rapper Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian, the extradition of rapper A$AP Rocky from Sweden, and receipts An increase in funding for historic black colleges and all universities will likely lead to an increase in his popularity among young, black voters.
“They’re not going to give up,” he said of the president’s approach to that voting bloc.
