Donald Trump Jr on Kyle Rittenhouse: ‘We all did stupid things when we were 17’

This Tuesday while speaking on the TV show Extra, Donald Trump Jr. offered a defense of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of killing two Black Lives Matter protesters and wounding a third in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

“We’re waiting for due process. We’re not jumping to a conclusion,” Trump Jr. said. “If I put myself in [Rittenhouse’s shoes], maybe I shouldn’t have been there. He’s a young kid. I don’t want young kids running around the streets with AR-15s. … Maybe I wouldn’t have put myself in that situation — who knows? We all do stupid things at 17.”

“It’s a little beyond stupid,” host Rachel Lindsay replied.

“Really stupid — fine,” Trump Jr. admitted. “But we all have to let due process play out and let due process take its course.”
