Left Wing Minneapolis Mayor Tries to Stop Citizens from Attending Trump Rally
President Trump has a rally scheduled for October 10 in the “sanctuary city” of Minneapolis, MN. When announced, the left wing mayor, Jacob Frey, denounced the President and the rally on social media. He wrote that “under ordinary circumstances, it would be an honor to welcome a sitting President to Minneapolis”. However, he now believes it is not because “President Trump’s actions have been reprehensible” since taking office.
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— Jacob Frey (@Jacob_Frey) September 26, 2019
While the 38-year-old mayor admits in the post that there are “no legal mechanisms to prevent the president from visiting”, he calls for the people of Minneapolis not to attend. He then went a step further and informed the Target Center, where the rally is being held, and the campaign that they are responsible for the $500,000 + it will cost for the city to secure the event.
Someone tell the President of the United States that he can afford to help pay for the extra time our officers will be putting in while he’s in town. https://t.co/bXITaPdW4E— Jacob Frey (@Jacob_Frey) October 8, 2019
This comes as the Minneapolis police union has also banned its officers from appearing in uniform on stage or in the background of President Trump’s rally. Which, is a move celebrated by Mayor Frey.
Our police dept is not a political organization, neither Democrat nor Republican. I support Chief Arradondo’s vision for keeping the department apolitical & his new policy banning the use of the MPD uniform for political campaigning & union activities. https://t.co/BXvnsCqRum— Jacob Frey (@Jacob_Frey) October 2, 2019
However, the police officers, who in the past, have been forced to stand behind Democratic candidates, are refusing to be bullied by their radical left mayor. They have taken matters into their own hands and created “Cops for Trump” t-shirts. The proceeds are going to police union charities. The head of the police union appeared on Fox News in his “Cops for Trump” t-shirt which he said are selling out and they can’t keep them on the shelves.
