Minneapolis Mayor bullies President Trump, denounces local police union

President Donald Trump's campaign is threatening to sue Minneapolis for trying to force it to pay $530,000 in security costs for this week's rally in the city.

Trump's campaign accused Frey, who has been critical of the president, of "conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security" at the rally.

Though the arena "attempted to pass the costs on to the Trump campaign under threat of withholding use", the campaign said in a statement, Trump's team "informed the Target Center that the U.S. Secret Service is exclusively responsible for coordinating security".

The Target Center has backed off canceling the contract, which means President Trump's Keep America Great rally will go on as scheduled. Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

It's created logistical and cost concerns for Minneapolis officials, who are asking for help from state, local and federal law enforcement agencies and expecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in extra costs for security.

"The radical Mayor of Minneapolis, @Jacob_Frey, is abusing his power in an attempt to block the President's supporters from seeing him speak on Thursday", Parscale tweeted Tuesday morning with a map of Minnesota showing the counties Trump won in 2016.

"We are well aware of Mayor Frey's vocal partisan opposition to President Trump and calls to disrupt the rally", read a letter from Trump law firm Jones Day to the Target Center's management firm.

He trolled Trump in a reply that made reference to the campaign's history of sticking cities with security costs. Mass presidential events in Minneapolis have also been much cheaper in the past. His campaign thinks they can flip Minnesota into Trump's column in 2020.

She says the price tag is more than 26-times what it cost when Barack Obama was at Target Center in 2008.

This move highlights the fact that liberal Democrats can not handle the outpouring of support for President Trump, his successes in office, and his message of making America great again, and their only course of action is to silence the opposition.

Trump came within 1.5 percentage points of beating Hillary Clinton in Minnesota, a state that hasn't picked a Republican for president since Richard Nixon's landslide win in 1972. "Minnesota, one of the last bastions of progressivism in the Midwest, has been trending more and more red in the last few presidential elections", the DFL said in one post in a thread about Trump visiting the state. The venue can hold 20,000 people, and Trump claimed on Twitter this week that more than 72,000 people had already requested tickets from his campaign. Dump Frey and Omar!

Frey later responded, "Yawn".

Republicans at President Donald Trump's rally in Minneapolis on Thursday will reportedly be escorted by a typically heavily armed group that has been called "one of the largest radical anti-government groups in the USA today".

Trump said: 'The Police are fighting the Radical Left Mayor, and his ridiculous Uniform Ban. "I am with you 100%!" the president said. "Make America Great Again!" he tweeted, referring to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
