He’s aiming for a career in politics.

Cleared Kenosha, Wisconsin, shooter Kyle Rittenhouse tweeted a photo Thursday night of himself dressed in a suit in front of the US Capitol and declared his political ambitions.

Rittenhouse, who last year was acquitted of all charges connected to a shooting that killed two people and injured a third during the 2020 riots in Kenosha, has been a budding figure in conservative politics since his trial.

He spoke at the convention AmericaFest in December, and earlier this year went on “The Jenna Ellis Show” podcast, where he slammed President Biden for not returning his calls.

Rittenhouse has also spun his newfound fame into various media ventures.

Last month, he launched a YouTube channel centered around guns and Second Amendment rights, which has racked up more than 80,000 subscribers. In June, he unveiled a video game where players can shoot “fake news” turkeys, with the proceeds helping to fund his defamation lawsuits against media outlets.
