Both are controversial, ubiquitous, and divisive. But that’s where the similarities between Kim Kardashian (Los Angeles, 43 years old) and Donald Trump (New York, 77 years old) end. As they are media stars, and live in constant search of the public’s favor – each for their own interests, political, professional or personal image – they know how to take advantage of each other at certain times until That they do not have obvious differences. They will be blown away by their weak relationship. Now a new book focusing on the personality of the former President of the United States has described how the relationship between the two has been. And cordial is not the word.
Journalist Jonathan Karl, an ABC News White House correspondent whose career spans nearly a quarter century, wrote tired of winning (Third of Winning, in its Spanish translation), which goes on sale Tuesday, November 14 and follows the former president’s path from losing to Joe Biden and leaving for his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida to today Tells the story of. It appears that Republicans are most likely to dominate the race for the 2024 White House. The anecdotes he describes in more than 330 pages include meetings and, above all, disagreements with businesswoman and reality television star.
Kardashian and Trump have known each other for years, but their relationship became closer in 2018. At the time, she was married to musician and designer Kanye West, from whom she separated in January 2021. She was also studying law with the intention of becoming a lawyer. Advocate. , and one of the main reasons for this was to pardon those who had been in prison for years, serving long sentences without committing blood crimes. For this reason, at the end of May 2018 he met with then-President Trump at the White House at the invitation of his son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner. There he talked about a possible pardon for a 63-year-old African-American woman named Alice Marie Johnson, who at the time was serving a life sentence and had been in prison for 22 years for cocaine possession and money laundering crimes. Barely a week later, Johnson was pardoned by the President in a controversial decision due to Trump’s interference in a judicial case.
In June 2019, Kardashian returned to Washington to speak to the President and also held a press conference at the White House again, this time on reforming the US prison system. However, they were no longer seen together. According to Karl in his book, Trump wanted to take advantage of the widespread public exposure of television celebrity, and he agreed, but things did not go as either of them had expected. “A source familiar with the conversations told me that Trump listened to her requests and asked her for a single redemption, In an excerpt carried by the media, the journalist writes, “He told Kardashian he would guarantee her a pardon if she took advantage of her relationships with other celebrities to invite her (American) football player friends to the White House. ” axios, “Kardashian went so far as to try everything Trump asked of her, she saw it as a small price to pay in exchange for getting justice for the people she believed in.” They were serving an unjust sentence. But all the footballers he approached rejected him. Trump had become very toxic. “No one wanted to be around him in the last two weeks of his presidency.”
Carl’s book focuses on these last three years, following his stay in the White House, and the story continues there. Apparently, Kardashian tried to contact Trump while he was already at Mar-a-Lago to help him get another pardon. He called him back quickly. “No way,” said the President. I do not do this. ‘You voted for Biden and now you’re coming to ask me for help?’ “It’s written in Carl’s book,” Trump told him. Although Kim Kardashian did not make public the meaning of her vote in the 2020 elections, in which current President Joe Biden won, after learning of his victory she posted several tweets expressing her joy at his election, wholeheartedly. “After a few more words, Rekha became silent. “Trump had contacted him.”
Kardashian was never a big supporter of Donald Trump. In 2016 he had already made it clear that he was going to vote for Hillary Clinton, posting photos with her labeled “Hillary President” and writing a personal opinion on his website. Trump has never been elegant with a star. In a 2013 interview, the businesswoman did not hesitate to criticize Kardashian’s body and the way she dresses – both issues that have also made her a global icon – and did so while she was pregnant with her first daughter: “She’s put on a little bit of fat. I will say this: I don’t think you should dress like you weigh 120 pounds.” In June 2014, at the event howard stern show, they asked him who he thought was more beautiful, Kim Kardashian or Jennifer Lopez. But he said nothing and criticized Kardashian’s butt when asked if it looked too big: “Well, absolutely. This is a record. In the old days we used to say that his body was bad.”
Carl’s book has not been received well by Trump’s supporters, and details are still to be learned. In his usual hushed tone, a spokesperson for the former president has denied what was written. “The disgraceful and talentless John Carl (In this way) is a secondary character who never got his own show for obvious reasons. Previously published quotations from that ‘book’ (with citations in the original) have already been vigorously refuted. This crap belongs in the discount bin or should be used as toilet paper.
