Kardashian, who has built an empire around her family's reality show, has recently been more engaged in politics.
Kardashian West will not be bringing her husband, Kanye West, her camera crew, or one of her sisters.
Kardashian now wants Trump to pardon Johnson. The group Change.org has put together an online petition on her behalf, and she tops the non-profit group Can-Do's list of convicted women who deserve a reprieve.More news: Apple releases iOS 11.4 with Messages in iCloud

West met with the then-president-elect at Trump Tower in NY in December 2016.
"We're grateful that Kim is using her platform to shine light on this issue", Ms. Barnett said in an interview. She had reportedly spoken to the adviser "several times" in the past about Johnson's sentence.
While Kardashian was a known supporter of Hilary Clinton during the 2016 USA election, her husband Kanye West has been vocal in his support for Trump, repeatedly wearing "Make America Great Again" merchandise and tweeting his controversial views. Her petition for clemency was denied by President Barack Obama in 2016, despite supportive letters from her warden and other prison officials.
An online petition to grant clemency to Johnson, started by her daughter, now has more than 250,000 signatures.
Johnson's case became worldwide news past year when Kardashian West tweeted about it which, in turn, led to her penning the star a heartfelt thank you letter. Perhaps. Considering Trump's friendly relationship with her husband, West, and his affinity for celebrities who treat him well, it's likely.
Kardashian West also hoped for a sit down with President Trump, a member of Johnson's legal team told The Associated Press. And on Monday, Kardashian West tweeted out the "sad" story of Matthew Charles, who served 21 years of a 35-year sentence for selling drugs before being sent back to prison due to an alleged sentencing error. "I would say this, I don't think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds".
