Former US President Donald Trump has made a series of bold comments after revealing his latest meeting with Kyle Rittenhouse at the private Mar-a-Lago resort.
According to media reports, the 18-year-old met the former Commander-in-Chief in a private meeting after Rittenhouse was acquitted for all of his charges in the high-profile homicide trial.
Speaking for a Fox News interview, Trump says that the teen met him because he wanted to and also because he was a huge fan of Trump.
During that meeting, Trump also added how Rittenhouse was accompanied by his mother and the two left recently.
Referring to him as a good kid, Trump was very vocal about how the prosecutors in the trial carried out misconduct as a teen like him should never have undergone a trial of this sort in the first place.
Trump also spoke about how all the facts were on the table and that whatever Rittenhouse did was for his own self-defense- nothing more and nothing less.
“Kyle would have been dead if he didn’t pull the trigger to protect himself,” Trump began to explain. “The other guy put the gun to his head in one-quarter of a second, and he was just about to pull the trigger on him,” he stated.
“He is a really good young guy, he just left my Mar-a-Lago resort a while back, and I strongly believe that he should have never been put through something like that in the first place,” he explained.
The former President also spoke about how prosecutorial misconduct was widely evident in this case and how it’s also happening all across the US.
