Trump Campaign Accuses Blue City Mayor Of Serious Crime

Via The Washington Examiner:

President Trump’s reelection campaign accused the mayor of Minneapolis and the Target Center of “attempting to extort” the campaign with security fees for their upcoming rally.

 Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted out a press release on Monday night accusing “the radical leftist mayor” Jacob Frey of “abusing the power of his office and attempting to extort” the campaign after city officials “preemptively informed the Target Center that it would be responsible for $530,000 in security and other costs related to the event.” It went on to claim that the Target Center “attempted to pass the costs on to the Trump campaign under threat of withholding the use of the arena.”

“The ridiculous sum of $530,000 is more than 26 times the estimated security costs for a 2009 Target Center health care rally held by President Barack Obama. Police officials estimated that the costs then were around $20,000,” the press release continued.

Trump chimed in on the situation on social media Tuesday morning, tweeting, “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!”
