(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.”
As CNSNews.com reported, Rittenhouse was acquitted of fatally shooting two men and injuring another.
“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.
“I know that we’re not going to heal our country’s wounds overnight, but I remain steadfast in my commitment to do everything in my power to ensure that every American is treated equally, with fairness and dignity, under the law,” the president said.
“I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law. Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy,” he said.
“The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor Evers’s office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety,” Biden added.
