He should not have suffered because of this in court, “concluded Trump.
Earlier it was reported that Trump congratulated Rittenhouse on his acquittal. “If this is not self-defense, then what is self-defense?” The former American leader noted. On November 19, it became known that the jury passed the teenager an acquittal. He was found not guilty on all charges.

After falling and being attacked by two men, he killed one of them and wounded the other, armed with a pistol. The young man was charged with six counts, including premeditated murder. The Rittenhouse case has become one of the most notorious in recent times in the United States.
