The president of the Minneapolis Federation of Police Officers denounced that Democratic Mayor Jacob Frey is discriminating against President Donald Trump, who plans to hold a rally in the city on Thursday, Oct. 10.
The fracas erupted after the Trump campaign said the city of Minneapolis presented the operator of Target Center a $530,000 bill for security costs, which the arena operator had sought to pass along to the campaign.
Trump's campaign said in a statement Tuesday that Target Center operators backed off cancelling the contract, and the Trump campaign is not paying any additional money.
The Trump campaign's legal team sent the Target Center's parent company, AEG Management, a letter Monday declaring that refusing to allow Trump to hold his event there would be a breach of contract.
"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", Mr. Parscale said.
Donald Trump Urges "Humane Solution" In Hong Kong
Patten added: "I fear for the future, unless Carrie Lam actually intervenes and understands the importance of dialogue". Police responded with tear gas. "Hong Kong's various sectors will enter a severe winter season", she said.
But Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a first-term Democrat, said Tuesday that he would push the Trump campaign to pay the costs.
Lt. Bob Kroll told "Fox & Friends" "It's disparate treatment" and added, "They have not charged almost that much for other events" held at the same location. "We also expect trouble from the same radical leftists in Minneapolis that assaulted Trump supporters in 2016".
Although the campaign may not be legally obligated to pay, the costs of hosting Trump's rallies can seriously strain local budgets.
Frey defended the estimated costs at a press conference earlier on Tuesday, dismissing the comparison the Trump campaign made between a 2009 event featuring President Barack Obama-which was estimated to cost around $20,000-and the upcoming rally.
The Trump campaign had earlier threatened to sue the city of Minneapolis over the costs.
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.

Minneapolis is in the 5th Congressional District, one of the most Democratic districts in the country.
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. 72,000 ticket requests already.
Frey stood by the security costs estimate, saying a Trump political rally brings "significant expenses" not associated with Obama's 2009 event, which was aimed at building support for health care reform.
The head of the Minneapolis police union, Bob Kroll, said many officers wanted to go to Thursday's rally wearing their uniforms to show support for the president but were banned from doing so by the police department.
