The meeting took place after Kyle filmed his first sit-down interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson.

Trump talked about the meeting during his interview with Sean Hannity this evening on Fox. "Kyle I got to know him a little bit. He called. He wanted to know if he could come over and say hello because he was a fan unlike the other guy,” Trump told the host.

As Radar previously reported, last week, Kyle was found not guilty by a Wisconsin jury. He was facing serious time behind bars but was able to convince the court he acted in self-defense.

Kyle was traveled from Illinois to Wisconsin as protests began over the police shooting of a black man named Jacob Blake. The then 17-year-old decided he wanted to protect a car lot that he did not own. He ended up killing Joseph Rosenbaum, and Anthony Huber. The third person involved was named Gaige Grosskreutz but he survived despite being shot.

Following the verdict, Kyle told Tucker, "I believe they came to the correct verdict and I’m glad that everything went well."
