News has come to light that the radical left-wing Mayor Jacob Frey is demanding extortion levels of money from the Trump Campaign, and claiming it is for security expenses!
Sadly, it has become the common theme for Democrat-controlled cities, to use excessive costs to host the event in their cities, in order to eat into the President’s coffers, and cost his supporters millions of dollars! Then, they charge Democrat campaigns a small fraction of the cost!
Brad Parscale, who is the Trump campaign manager, tweeted…

This is an outrageous abuse of power by a liberal mayor trying to deny the rights of his own city’s residents just because he hates the President!
Leftist Minneapolis Mayor Uses Target Center to Stomp 1st Amendment Rights of Over 1.3 Million Trump Supporters
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 Trump campaign informed the Target Center that the U.S. Secret Service is solely responsible for coordinating security and that withholding the use of the arena would be viewed as a breach of contract and result in court action. Additionally, 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. Again, the costs are a matter between the city and the Secret Service.
“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. “This last-minute squeeze seems to be nothing but a pretextual political effort with serious First Amendment ramifications.”
In 2016, President Trump earned more than 1.3 million votes in Minnesota and came within 1.5 percentage points of winning the state.
“This is an outrageous abuse of power by a liberal mayor trying to deny the rights of his own city’s residents just because he hates the President,” said Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. “People want to hear from their President, and no mayor looking to beef up his resume for a run for higher office should stand in the way.”
Ultimately, they should sue the Mayor for his blatant attempt to deny the President from speaking to the American citizens in Minnesota! Even better, the citizens of Minnesota should vote the radical left-wing corruption right out of office!
