Kyle Rittenhouse says his case had ‘nothing to do with race’ in first interview after acquittal



Kyle Rittenhouse, who was found not guilty on all five charges last week to conclude a high-profile murder trial, sat down with Tucker Carlson for his exclusive first interview following his acquittal.



Rittenhouse told the "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that the case had "nothing to do with race" during a preview of the interview that airs Monday at 8 p.m. ET.



"This case has nothing to do with race. It never had anything to do with race. It had to do with the right to self-defense," Rittenhouse told Carlson in a clip from the interview that was released over the weekend.

"I’m not a racist person. I support the BLM movement. I support peacefully demonstrating. I believe there needs to be change," Rittenhouse continued. "I believe there’s a lot of prosecutorial misconduct, not just in my case but in other cases. It’s just amazing to see how much a prosecutor can take advantage of someone."
