Former President Donald Trump was asked about the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict on Fox News on Friday night.
“I think that it was a great decision,” Trump said of the jury’s acquittal of Rittenhouse. “I was sad it had to go this far. Somebody should have ended it earlier, and frankly the case should have never been brought. It was prosecutorial misconduct. … I was very happy to see (the not guilty verdict). A lot of people were very happy to see it — most people.”
“We saved Kenosha very early,” he said. “It was a horrible couple of nights. They got individual stores. The place didn’t burn down to the ground because we sent in a lot of good people.
