Psaki Refuses To Say If Biden Will Apologize To Rittenhouse

Jen Psaki

During Tuesday’s press conference, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to answer if President Biden would ever apologize to Kyle Rittenhouse for suggesting multiple times last year that the then-17-year-old was a white supremacist.

“Would the President ever apologize to the acquitted Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse for suggesting online and on TV, that he is a white supremacist?” a reporter asked.

“Well, let’s be clear what we’re talking about here. This is about a campaign video released last year that used President Trump’s own words during a debate, as he refused to condemn white supremacists and militia groups, and President Trump, as we know from history, and as many of you covered, didn’t just refuse to condemn militia groups on the debate stage, he actively encouraged them throughout his presidency,” Psaki falsely claimed. “So, you know, what we’ve seen are the tragic consequences of that, when people think it’s okay to take the law into their own hands, instead of allowing law enforcement to do its job and the president believes in condemning hatred, division, and violence. That’s exactly what was done in that video.”

It should be noted that President Trump condemned white supremacists and militia groups on numerous occasions.

The reporter then asked Psaki about an interview with CNN in 2020 in which Biden again suggested Rittenhouse was a white supremacist who was part of a militia.

“The President also gave an interview where he said this Rittenhouse was ‘part of a militia coming out of Illinois. Have you ever heard of this President, referring to Trump, say one negative thing about white supremacists?’” the reporter said. “These are all things, none of this was proven in the trial and Kyle Rittenhouse is saying that the President had actual malice in defaming his character. Is that what happened here?”

Psaki again avoided answering the question, saying, “The President spoke to the verdict last week.”

“He has obviously condemned the hatred and division and violence we’ve seen around the country by groups like the Proud Boys and groups that that individual has posed in photos with, but beyond that, I’ll leave it to his comments around the verdict,” she added.
