Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
You seriously cannot make these damn Democrats up. And even if you could, who in their right mind would want to? – Leftist nitwit Democrat Mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey has had his tiny head handed to him today by the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.
The President will be holding one of his famous rallies at the city’s Target Center this Thursday, and the Mayor, along with his fellow activist police chief, Medaria Arradondo, have worked overtime to prevent that from happening. The Trump Campaign reports that it has received 72,000 ticket requests for the event, and the Target Center’s capacity is 19,356.
First, Chief Arradondo implemented a new rule banning his officers from working in uniform as security at any political events to earn additional income in their off-duty hours. The Chief laughably claims the timing of his new rule is mere coincidence, and that it is not politically-motivated. No one believes him.
The rule drew protests from the local Police Officer’s Federation, whose President and spokesman, Lt. Bob Kroll, said officers would work security at the event regardless. Thus, that ridiculous tactic will fail. Hilariously, the Trump Campaign responded to this despicable tactic by printing up red “Cops for Trump” t-shirts and they are selling like hotcakes, with all proceeds going to a police charity.
Next up is Mayor Frey, who on Monday presented Target Center officials with a “security” bill from the City for $530,000, even though his Chief of Police has already publicly stated the city will not be providing any “security” for the event. The Trump Campaign never asked for any “security” help for the event, making it quite clear that security plans and execution are the exclusive territory of the United States Secret Service, and that private security would be hired for the event as needed.
That fee the city proposes to charge the Target Center for hosting a Trump event compares to fees of ~$20,000 Minneapolis has charged for previous sellout events at that venue. Obviously, it is a grossly fraudulent billing that would never withstand scrutiny if challenged in court, which the Trump camp has promised to do if Frey doesn’t withdraw it.
Regardless, the President is calling the Mayor’s bluff and promised in a series of tweets that the event will come off as planned:
….In fact, the “Cops For Trump” T-shirt Web Site CRASHED because of incredible volume, but is now back up and running. Proceeds go to the Police Union Charities. See you on Thursday night in Minneapolis!

Expect the event to happen without any issues, and for the pathetic Mayor’s absurd “bill” to quietly be replaced by the City’s standard fee, and don’t expect your fake news media to update you on the story when all of that happens.
That is all.
