Does Khloé Kardashian Support President Donald Trump? They Have An Interesting History Together
Over the past year or so, she’s worked with Trump to secure clemency for at least one person and pass the First Step Act, which helps inmates transition back into society. These efforts have largely been documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
In a recent episode, the KKW Beauty star even invited her sister and right-hand, Khloé Kardashian, to join her. But the Good American founder did not seem super thrilled. It appears that Khloé isn’t the biggest fan of Trump, and it’s not really surprising given their history.

In the episode, which aired on Oct. 27, Kardashian West met with the president to talk about a ride-share program with Lyft that helps newly-released inmates get to job interviews.
“I work with Cut 50, they write so much amazing policy,” she said in the episode (via Us Weekly). “Getting people back on their feet is really important to me and I’m so proud to be a part of this initiative to make people’s reentry back into society easier.”
When she got back home to Calabasas, California, she suggested that Khloé join her next time, to which she retorted, “Girl, I’ve been when a different president was in office.”
Khloé Kardashian and President Donald Trump have a long history
Their relationship dates back to at least 2009 when Khloé appeared on Celebrity Apprentice. People reported at the time that Trump had eliminated her from the show because of a DUI she received in 2007.
“I hate people who drive under the influence,” Trump said while firing Khloé. “I know three families who lost children to drunken driving.”
Khloé later defended herself in an old blog post, saying, “It wasn’t because of my work ethic, it wasn’t because I was slacking. It was because of my DUI. I don’t think I should have been fired for that reason alone. I just wish Mr. Trump would have handled the situation a little differently.”
Sources later told The Huffington Post that Trump was looking for any way to “get rid” of the reality star. Former staffers of the show told the outlet in 2016 that Trump had made many disparaging comments about Khloé behind the scenes, including calling her a “piglet.”
Another insider claimed that Trump had once asked the staff, “What is this? We can’t even get the hot one,” seemingly referring to Kardashian West.
In July of the same year, Khloé said that she “hated” the show and only did it because her mother, Kris Jenner, put her up to it.
“It is something I would never do… I was put in situations I would never be in real life. I went to home school, I don’t’ know how to do a f*cking PowerPoint and this and that,” she explained.
Khloé also said, “I don’t think [Trump] would make a good president.”
So, as we said, she’s clearly not a fan.
