Biden does not intend to apologize to Rittenhouse for his campaign ad where the then 17-year-old teen was called "white supremacist"
Joe Biden has remained silent and avoided discussing Kyle Rittenhouse as he used the hype surrounding the bloody Kenosha protests to promote his candidacy for the presidency of the United States.
A campaign video was released last year and a violent standoff between BLM looters and Second Amendment supporters gave Biden the content he needed to attract the electorate.
But, all charges were dropped from Rittenhouse, as he defended himself, and Biden and Psaki do not intend to apologize to the teenager for calling him a "white supremacist."

“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,” Psaki said.
White House press sec. Psaki asked if Pres. Biden would apologize to Kyle Rittenhouse for previous comments, campaign video after acquittal: “The president believes in condemning hatred, division and violence. That’s exactly what was done in that video.” https://t.co/pdWeDfZjgD pic.twitter.com/nuxC6yEwj8— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) November 23, 2021
