WATCH: Trump meets with Rittenhouse, ‘a really good young guy’

“He should never have been put through that,” former President Donald Trump said of 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse’s ordeal.

Last week, jurors found Rittenhouse not guilty of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Trump had been defending the teen throughout the trial, saying that he was acting in self-defense.
