When asked in an interview with the TV show Extra about the deadly shootings in Kenosha in which 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse has been accused of killing two protesters and wounding a third, Donald Trump Jr. said, "we're waiting for due process," and he lamented the tragedy of a "young kid" putting himself in a volatile situation while armed with a deadly weapon, saying, "We all do stupid things at 17."

President Trump's eldest son, who went on the show to promote his book "Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden and the Democrats Defense of the Indefensible," was asked by host Rachel Lindsay about one of the biggest political issues during the presidential campaign: the Black Lives Matter movement.

In discussing the shooting of Jacob Blake by a white Kenosha police officer, and the subsequent protests, Lindsay, who is Black, asked: "But why hasn't the Trump Administration or President Trump condemned what happened in Kenosha with Kyle Rittenhouse… coming across state lines and… murdering two people and injuring another," referring to the homicide charges against the teen who traveled from his home in Antioch, Illinois, to Kenosha and, according to a criminal complaint, shot three protesters with a Smith & Wesson AR-15 style .223 rifle.
