‘He Was Trying to Get Away’: Trump Refuses to Condemn Kyle Rittenhouse – Defends Pro-MAGA Teen Charged With Killing Protestors

President Donald Trump is refusing to condemn Kyle Rittenhouse, the AR-15-wielding pro-Trump self-styled “vigilante” Illinois teenager who is charged with shooting two protestors to death, and injuring a third in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

“As I saw, and he was trying to get away from them I guess it looks like,” Trump told reporters Monday evening. “And he fell, and then they very violently attacked him. And it was something that we’re looking at right now and it’s under investigation but I guess he was in very big trouble he would have been, he probably would have been killed but it’s under, it’s under investigation.”

He was trying to get away from them because he had already shot and killed one protestor.
