Alice Marie Johnson thanked President Donald Trump on Thursday for commuting her life sentence and said it was divine intervention that made Kim Kardashian appeal to the commander-in-chief on her behalf.

“I know that it was a miracle, I know that only God could have touched Kim Kardashian’s heart like that and we have connected,” Johnson, 63, said in an interview on the “Today” show.

“She said that she felt something when she saw and heard my story and I’m just so thankful for it, I can’t explain it, it’s a miracle,” the Tennessee grandmother added.

Kardashian and her team worked to free Johnson – who spent 22 years behind bars for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense and Trump decided she’d served her time and announced she’d be freed on Wednesday.

“I would tell President Trump thank you so much. That I am going to be that one that is going to make you so proud and I hope that my life will encourage him to do this for others, too,” Johnson said in an interview on CBS This Morning Thursday.

She also thanked her “war angel” Kardashian.
