Donald Trump Jr.Answered Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal by encouraging people to sign a card of support that will be sent to the teenager, alongside an AR-15 rifle.

An ex-President Donald Trump’s son amplified powerful gun lobbying group Gun Owners of America’s “award”Rittenhouse’s 7.1 million followers on Twitter Friday night.

“Sign the card in support of Kyle,” Trump Jr. urged just hours after Rittenhouse, 18, was found not guilty on all charges relating to his shooting of three people, and killing of two, during protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year, when he was armed with an AK-style semi-automatic weapon.

“Americans have a fundamental right to defend themselves, and to keep and bear arms,” Trump Jr. added, copying the text on the GOA’s website. “The verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial is a recognition of those rights.”

Trump Jr. made a statement in his earlier tweets responding to the trial a gleeful tone similar to other right-wingers when he said the jury gave President Joe Biden “his second colonoscopy of the day.” He also attacked Vice President Kamala HarrisNBA superstar LeBron James.

The GOA was criticized for the act and Trump Jr., who endorsed it, were slammed by critics.
