Trump defends gunman charged with murdering 2 in Kenosha

Source: Politico

President Donald Trump on Monday portrayed the gunman charged with murdering two protesters in Kenosha, Wis., as a victim, suggesting that the Illinois teenager was acting in self-defense.

Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, was arrested last week and charged with two counts of first-degree murder for shooting during an anti-racist protest following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Video of Rittenhouse at the protests showed him carrying an assault rifle and telling someone on the phone that “I just killed somebody”, according to the criminal complain against him. He was taken into custody the following day.

The criminal complaint said he killed a man, Joseph Rosenbaum, after Rosenbaum threw a plastic bag at Rittenhouse and tried to grab his gun. A group of protesters chased after Rittenhouse, yelling that he had shot someone.

But speaking at a White House news conference on Monday, Trump suggested that the protesters were the instigators, out to get Rittenhouse, and that he was acting in self-defense.

3. It is what it is.. right spray tan?

We all know he doesn't care...he could care less about Rittenhouse or the people he killed. What are we at now 180,000+ of our fellow Americans dead??

God bless the day we are rid of him and the rest of his trash.

7. Trump is nuts!!!! The murderer is no victim. Hopefully this will sway some against Trump.

...Some diehards may see this as extreme stupidity and not vote for Trump or just not vote.

11. He wants to see where the investigation goes.

The investigation is over. The kid has been charged with 2 counts of murder along with several other felonies. Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingram should be taken off of the air for publicly supporting an accused murderer.
