'The jury system works': Biden weighs in on Rittenhouse jury verdict


President Joe Biden appealed for unity and calm while sympathizing with those who are “angry and concerned” after a Kenosha, Wisconsin, jury found teenager Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts in his homicide trial amid concerns of violent protests.

Biden said in a statement and in separate remarks to reporters that the jury verdict must be respected.

“While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken,” he said in the statement issued by the White House. “I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us.”
