Trump supporter outside Rittenhouse trial courthouse tells Black man: 'Move your Black [expletive] back!'

As the jury for the Kyle Rittenhouse trial deliberated Tuesday morning, supporters of the Illinois teen and Black Lives Matter supporters showed up outside the Kenosha courthouse to air their opposing views. As journalist Sergio Olmos pointed out in a Twitter thread, things got testy at times.

At one point, protesters erupted into opposing chants. One man could be seen walking around with a bullhorn heckling the BLM contingent.

As the two groups grew more confrontational, another White man with a bullhorn, who was wearing a hat featuring former President Donald Trump as the "Punisher," got into a shoving match with a Black protester, telling him to "move your Black ass back."
