KYLE Rittenhouse has slammed Joe Biden for allegedly not returning his calls after his acquittal in the Kenosha shootings.
The 19-year-old aired his grievances at the president and at mainstream media in a recent interview in which he claimed he’s afraid of leaving his house in case of an attack.
Speaking on The Jenna Ellis Show podcast, Rittenhouse claimed Biden has ignored his requests to meet with him.
“I reached out to Joe Biden several times — crickets, nothing,” Rittenhouse said.
“He still hasn’t replied. So it just shows how much of a man he is to not sit down and talk.”
The Illinois native lamented how he believes he has been represented by mainstream media, saying his life since being acquitted has been “a little difficult.”
He shared that he is afraid of going grocery shopping or taking his dog for a walk because of fear of being attacked over “false lies that were put out.”
Rittenhouse also spoke of the fatal shooting that led to his notoriety.
“I was 17 years old. I was attacked and had to defend myself. I’m not a racist. I’m not a white supremacist. I’m not a domestic terrorist,” he said.
“I’m not a murderer, and anybody who wants to sit down and have a conversation, I’m more than open.”

The teen had previously said he wanted to sue Biden for calling him a white supremacist in 2020.
WHAT HAPPENED IN KENOSHA?
He could have gotten life in prison if he was found guilty of the most serious charges he was facing.
The teen, who was 17 at the time, traveled from his home in Illinois to Kenosha, Wisconsin, armed with an AR-15 as protests over the police shooting of a black man named Jacob Blake were underway.
Carrying a weapon that authorities said was illegally purchased for the underage Rittenhouse, he joined other armed citizens in what he said was an effort to protect property and provide medical aid.
Bystander and drone video captured most of the frenzied chain of events that followed: Rittenhouse killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, then shot to death protester Anthony Huber, 26, and wounded demonstrator Gaige Grosskreutz, now 28.
His trial jury accepted that he had acted in self-defense.
He was acquitted on all charges last year.
