Kyle Rittenhouse visited former President Donald Trump at his South Florida estate on Tuesday evening, Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity during an interview.
The country’s 45th president said the meeting was initiated when he received a call from the teenager, and he extended an invite for Rittenhouse to fly to West Palm Beach and sit down at Mar-a-Lago.
“Kyle, I got to know him a little bit, he called. He wanted to know if he could come over, say hello, because he was a fan,” Trump said.
Impressed with Rittenhouse, the former president heaped praise on him just days after he was acquitted on numerous counts, including murder, in the shootings of three attackers during a riot in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year.
