“I want to say to President Trump, I am going to make you proud that you gave me this second chance in life,” Johnson said during a Wednesday night phone interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Listen to her interview:

“And I will not disappoint the American public or the world that has so much faith in me,” she continued. “All I can say is thank you, President Trump. And I love you, President Trump! Thank you.”

On Thursday morning, the president tweeted out a good luck message to Johnson, wishing her a “wonderful life” moving forward:

See her reaction to the tweet:

“It means that someone finally saw me, someone finally heard me, someone had mercy on me – and that was President Trump & so I’m so thankful for him and what he’s done,” Johnson told CNN on what the commutation means to her.

Johnson was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for her involvement facilitating communications within a 1996 cocaine trafficking operation. When Kardashian West learned of her case, she met with Jared Kushner and the president to push for her pardon.


On Wednesday, President Trump signed her commutation and she was released from prison for the first time in over 20 years, reuniting with her family.
