KIM Kardashian has made a direct appeal to President Trump after a judge refused a request to lift Brandon Bernard’s death sentence.
Bernard – who was convicted of the murder of two youth ministers when he was a teen- is to be executed today, making him the ninth prisoner put to death since Trump resumed executions following a 17-year hiatus.
Kim begged the president to commute the death sentence and allow the 40-year-old to spend the rest of his days behind bars, insisting his role in the shocking crime was “minor”.
Kardashian tweeted: “Brandon Bernard, a 40-year-old father is going to be executed tomorrow by our federal government…Having gotten to know Brandon, I am heartbroken about this execution.
“I’m calling on @realDonaldTrump to grant Brandon a commutation and allow him to live out his sentence in prison.”
