The E! personality joined in a listening session in the Roosevelt Room with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, human rights attorney Jessica Jackson Sloan, CNN host Van Jones and more.

Jones went on to note that thanks to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, there could be 50,000 fewer people in prison and the inhumane treatment of women in prison may be fixed.
