“It wasn’t Kyle Rittenhouse on trial in Wisconsin. It was a right of self-defense at trial,” Rittenhouse told Carlson in a clip of the exclusive interview shared on Twitter.

A portion of the interview will air on Fox Nation in December, along with the Tucker Carlson Original Documentary streaming on Fox News host’s show.

Donald Trump Jr. shared a meme of his father giving former President Donald Trump’s Presidential Medal of Freedom to Kyle Rittenhouse.

He captioned the post, “2024??? Who knows?”

Several Trump supporters commented on the post saying it should happen before the next presidential election, with others suggesting that the 18-year-old race as mayor of Kenosha or vice president for Republicans.
