Kyle Rittenhouse, the 18 year old who was just acquitted of double homicide, wants the chance to clear his name in the eyes of the media, and of the President of the United States.
While the President himself never specifically called Rittenhouse the word “racist”, he and members from his team certainly tried their best to describe him as one in political campaign ads.
“There’s no other way to put it: the President of the United States refused to disavow white supremacists on the debate stage last night,” he wrote about Rittenhouse, referring to President Trump.

Rittenhouse has publicly noted on two different shows that he would like the opportunity to meet with Democratic President Joe Biden so that he has the opportunity to clear the air.
Rittenhouse hopes that he will be able to explain his side of the story to the President in a way in which he will understand how the jury came to their decision. On “Louder with Crowder,” Rittenhouse said:
“If [Biden] reached out, I’d be happy to tell him my side of the story of what happened. Mr. President, I hope you see this…I’d have a sit-down and I’ll explain the facts to you so you can understand them.”
