Kyle Rittenhouse mentioned his future in an unique first interview since his acquittal on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Monday. 

Rittenhouse advised Tucker he’s a scholar at Arizona State University and has his sights on nursing; one other profession he’s contemplating is regulation. 

“I want to be a nurse, so I’ve been doing the prerequisites for that,” he mentioned. “I don’t know for sure yet … I may change it. I’ve been looking into the law. I may want to become a lawyer. I haven’t completely decided yet, but I’ve been looking.”

Rittenhouse says he hopes his life will return again to regular, and that he plans to maintain a low profile.

“I was an innocent 17-year-old who was violently attacked and defended myself,” he mentioned. “I feel my life has been extremely defamed … I don’t think I would be able to go out and get a job and not have to deal with harassment. But I’m at a place now … where I have to have people with me because people want to kill me just because I defended myself – and they’re too ignorant to look at the facts of what happened …I see some of the threats. Some of the things people say it’s absolutely sickening.”

Rittenhouse shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, in the course of the August 2020 protests and riots in Kenosha that erupted after police shot Jacob Blake, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. The third individual Rittenhouse shot, Gaige Grosskreutz, survived and testified in the course of the trial.

After days of deliberations, the jury returned with “not guilty” verdicts for each cost. 

Rittenhouse mentioned all through his testimony on the Kenosha County Courthouse that he was appearing in self-defense. During closing arguments, the protection went on the assault on the prosecutor’s strategies and asserted that then 17-year-old Rittenhouse (he’s now 18) acted throughout the context of the lawlessness and violence that adopted the police capturing of Blake.

“This is this is something that I wish never would have happened, but it did, and we can’t change that,” Rittenhouse mentioned. 

Tucker requested Rittenhouse if he feels he has been “watched over.”

“I feel like God has been on my side through the beginning,” Rittenhouse responded.
