In an interview with Tucker Carlson that was aired tonight on his Fox News show, Kyle Rittenhouse delivered a message to President Joe Biden over previously being called a white supremacist.
In a clip that was tweeted by verified Twitter user Greg Price, Carlson asked Rittenhouse, “What do you make of the president of the United States calling you a white supremacist?”
“Mr. President, if I could say one thing to you, I would urge you to go back and watch the trial and understand the facts before you make a statement,” Rittenhouse responded.
Carlson then stated, “That’s not a small thing to be called that.”
“No, it’s actual malice, defaming my character, for him to say something like that,” Rittenhouse added.

On Sept. 30, 2020, Biden tweeted out a video and said, “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.”
In the video, a picture of Rittenhouse holding his AR-15 can be seen when describing violence in Kenosha.

Prior to the conclusion of the trial, Kyle’s mom, Wendy Rittenhouse, told Sean Hannity about the video, “When I saw that, I was shocked, I was angry.”
“President Biden don’t know my son whatsoever, and he’s not a white supremacist. He’s not a racist. And (Biden) did that for the votes. And I was so angry for a while at him and what he did to my son, he defamed him,” Wendy explained at the time.
In a statement following Rittenhouse’s exoneration, Biden said, “While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken.”
