Former President Donald Trump announced that he met with Kyle Rittenhouse during an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News Tuesday and boasted that Rittenhouse is "...a nice young man."
"Kyle, I got to know him a little bit," Trump said. "He called and wanted to know if he could come over. He came over with his mother, really a nice young man."
"What he went through! That was prosecutorial misconduct. He should not have had to suffer through a trial for that. He was going to be dead," Trump explained. "If he didn't pull that trigger, that guy that put the gun to his head, in one quarter of a second he was going to pull the trigger, Kyle would have been dead."
"He's a really good young guy. He's eighteen years old, just left Mar-A-Lago a little while ago, and he should never have been put through that," Trump added.
The former President said that what Kyle Rittenhouse went through was "prosecutorial misconduct" and "it's happening all over the United States now with the Democrats."
