Well, good news for all you Minneapolis, and Minnesota Trump supporters out there…President Trump has won the battle against the unhinged liberal mayor who was trying to stop the rally on Thursday, by imposing half a million dollars worth of last minute fees.
The Trump campaign claimed victory late Tuesday night in its heated battle with Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who demanded the campaign pay more than $500,000 in security expenses for Thursday’s rally at the Target Center in Ilhan Omar’s downtown Minneapolis district.
When President Trump announced the rally, the crazed liberal mayor took to Twitter, where he whined and complained about Trump’s visit.
On October 10, our entire city will stand not behind the President, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city – and this country – great. pic.twitter.com/IGw2qis3h5

President Trump called the Minneapolis mayor a “lightweight” who is hurting his city, in a tweet on Tuesday.
He also called for citizens to dump Omar and Frey.
The lightweight mayor is hurting the great police and other wonderful supporters. 72,000 ticket requests already. Dump Frey and Omar! Make America Great Again! https://t.co/ibTqvSbsbn

“The arena in Minneapolis has been fully approved. The Target Center has backed off cancelling the contract, which means President Trump’s Keep America Great rally will go on as scheduled,” Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement issued on Tuesday afternoon.
“Consistent with our original agreement with the venue, the Trump campaign has not agreed to pay any additional funds. We look forward to seeing everyone Thursday night,” Parscale concluded.
The Trump campaign criticized Frey’s action in a statement released on Monday evening:
The radical leftist mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, is abusing the power of his office and attempting to extort President Trump’s re-election campaign by conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security in an effort to block a scheduled Keep America Great rally. Democrat Mayor Frey is using the bogus security charges to pressure the Target Center, site of the contracted October 10, 2019 rally, into preventing Minnesota residents from exercising their First Amendment rights in support of President Trump.
Frey’s city government preemptively informed the Target Center that it would be responsible for $530,000 in security and other costs related to the event. The Target Center attempted to pass the costs on to the Trump campaign under threat of withholding the use of the arena.
The mayor has also made a new rule, where police officers cannot attend the rally in uniform. The officers are fighting back, with these cleverly designed t-shirts. You can see the shirts here.
