President Trump’s campaign on Tuesday that they had won a dispute with a Minneapolis arena to hold a MAGA rally there Thursday without paying $530,000 bill for security.
“The arena in Minneapolis has been fully approved. The Target Center has backed off cancelling the contract, which means President Trump’s Keep America Great rally will go on as scheduled,” the campaign said in a statement.
“Consistent with our original agreement with the venue, the Trump campaign has not agreed to pay any additional funds. We look forward to seeing everyone Thursday night.”
Trump earlier Tuesday called for Minneapolis voters to “dump” Mayor Jacob Frey, over the $530,000 fee and even threatened to sue.
The president also complained about decision by the city to ban off-duty police officers from wearing their uniforms to the event.
“Someone please tell the Radical Left Mayor of Minneapolis that he can’t price out Free Speech. Probably illegal! I stand strongly & proudly with the great Police Officers and Law Enforcement of Minneapolis and the Great State of Minnesota! See you Thursday Night!” the commander in chief tweeted.
