Donald Trump boasted that Kyle Rittenhouse is “a fan” of his as he revealed the acquitted killer had visited him at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on Tuesday.
In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, the former president called Rittenhouse “really a nice young man” and a “really good young guy” who should “not have had to suffer through a trial” for shooting two men dead and wounding another during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.
Trump claimed Rittenhouse, who has been lionized by right-wingers and even offered internships by some extremist GOP lawmakers following his acquittal, had “called and wanted to know if he could come over and say hello.”
Trump posed for photographs with Rittenhouse and his mother.
Hannity showed a picture of the group on air.
The trial was “prosecutorial misconduct,” Trump rambled to Hannity, claiming without evidence that it was “happening all over the United States right now with the Democrats.”
