(CNSNews.com) – President Biden reacted to the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all charges in Kenosha, Wis., by saying Friday that he stands by “what the jury has concluded.”

“The jury system works, and we have to abide by it,” he told reporters when asked whether he stands by his past comment “equating him to white supremacy.”

“While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken. I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us,” Biden said in a statement.
