Kyle Rittenhouse encouraged President Joe Biden to watch his trial and “understand the facts before you make a statement” during an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Monday on Nov.22.
Rittenhouse further claimed that Biden’s labelling him a white supremacist is “actual malice,” and that he is working with lawyers to make those who spread false information about him accountable, reported Breitbart.
Rittenhouse said, “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 added that Biden was calling him a white supremacist was “actual malice, defaming my character for him to say something like that.”
Rittenhouse also criticized the media coverage, saying, “It’s actually quite hysterical how nobody can go back and look at the facts of the case. He crossed state lines, false. He’s a white supremacist, false. None of that is true. And the lies that they can just get away with spreading, it’s just sickening and it’s a disgrace to this country.”
When the topic of making those who lied about him accountable was brought up, Rittenhouse stated, “I have really good lawyers who are taking care of that right now. So, I’m hoping, one day, there will be some—there will be accountability for their actions that they did.”
After Kyle Rittenhouse sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson for his first post-acquittal interview, his lawyer defended him, saying he is not a “crazy right-winger.”
Even as he detailed being bombarded with death threats, the boy astonished many viewers, who complimented him for his “maturity” and “level-headedness.” However, many on the left were outraged by his presence, labeling him a “murderer” and accusing him of “gross pandering” throughout the interview, reported Daily Mail.
