Kyle Rittenhouse met with former President Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago club after the teen was acquitted of all charges in his homicide trial last week.
The meeting between the two was disclosed during president Trump’s interview with Sean Hannity on Tuesday night.
“Kyle, I got to know him a little bit. He called. He wanted to know if he could come over and say hello because he was a fan, unlike the other guy,” the former president told Hannity.
“He should never have been put through that,” Trump said Tuesday night, referring to Rittenhouse’s trial. “That was prosecutorial misconduct.”
Trump said Rittenhouse visited with his mother and the two left the former president’s Florida resort “a little while ago.”
Last Friday a jury cleared Kyle Rittenhouse of charges of homicide, attempted homicide, and reckless endangerment after he fatally shot two men and wounded a third in self-defense during the BLM riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020.
