Here’s what Rittenhouse had to say…
Following a recent interview with Fox News, 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who was acquitted of all charges following a shooting in Kenosha, has now issued a controversial statement towards President Biden and people have mix feelings.
Rittenhouse began his interview by noting that this wasn’t in means a political case and Americans shouldn’t have treated it as such. He explained how none of this had to do with race of racism and he was sickened by the way people twisted it in the media and on social media.
Following the shooting, When Biden was not yet president of the United States, he took to twitter and posted a video of Rittenhouse and called on then-President Donald Trump to come out and disavow white supremacists. Biden’s video suggested the Rittenhouse was somehow a white supremacist and Rittenhouse was asked how he felt about it.
“What did you make of the president of the United States calling you a white supremacist?” Fox’s Tucker Carlson asked.
Rittenhouse responded, “Mr. President, if I would say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial, and understand the facts before you make a statement.”
Carlson then asked, “That’s not a small thing to be called that?”
Rittenhouse responded,“No, it’s actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.”
