Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot and killed two people during a BLM protest last year, was acquitted last month, as the defense managed to prove that he acted in self-defense. In October 2020, then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden referred to Kyle Rittenhouse and other people as “white supremacists.”
18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse said in an interview with the New York Post on Thursday that he would like to explain to US president Joe Biden his view of the situation during the tragiс protest of summer 2020.
When asked whether the president had called him to apologize, Rittenhouse said: “He hasn’t.”
“I would like to sit down with the president and have a conversation with him and tell him the facts of what happened,” he said.
Last year, after a debate with then-president Donald Trump, where the shooting was brought up, Biden posted a short video, where Rittenhouse could be seen, saying that Trump "refused to disavow white supremacists.”
In his interview with Fox News, Rittenhouse said that “It's actual malice, defaming my character, for him to say something like that.”
"Mr. President, if I could 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," he said to Biden during the interview.
