Former President Donald Trump called Kim Kardashian «the most overrated celebrity in the world,» refuting the claim about an incident between them in Jonathan Karl’s new book, «Betrayal: The Final Act of the Trump Show.»
«In the ‘book,’ the most overrated celebrity in the world, Kim Kardashian, is mentioned, who supposedly told me that she ‘uses her fame to attract soccer stars to the White House’ if I soften the sentences of various prisoners,» Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth. «This story is fake news because she (Kim Kardashian) would be the last person I’d ask to bring in soccer players.»
At the same time, Trump praised her ex-husband Kanye West. «I really helped with sentence reductions, but only if they deserved it, and it’s more related to Kanye West than Kim, who probably voted for the dishonest Joe Biden, and look at the mess our country is in now,» added the former U.S. president.
Kardashian visited Trump at the White House in 2018 to discuss prison reform and the commutation of the life sentence of a prisoner named Alice Marie Johnson. «I can’t say anything bad about the president,» Kardashian later said in the same year. «He did something amazing.»
Although Kardashian never publicly endorsed a presidential candidate in 2020, she posted heart emojis on a photo of President Biden and Kamala Harris on social media a few days after the election.
In 2021, Kardashian stated that she represents a mix of both political parties. «I believe in the rights that Democrats want, but I believe in the taxes that Republicans want,» she said at the time.
