Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) and President Trump got into it on Twitter Tuesday morning after the Trump campaign threatened to sue the city over security costs for an upcoming rally.

In response to Trump tweeting Tuesday morning that Frey is a “lightweight mayor” who is “hurting the great police and other wonderful supporters,” Frey simply said, “Yawn.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Yawn… Welcome to Minneapolis where we pay our bills, we govern with integrity, and we love all of our neighbors,” Frey tweeted.

Rep. Ilhan Omar,  Somalian refugee, also responded on Twitter: “Minnesota stands for peace, equity, and justice — everything you are against. While you spew hate, we will keep fighting for the America we deserve.”

A battle has erupted after the Minneapolis mayor hit the venue where a Trump rally is scheduled with a $530,000 bill to provide security for the rally. In turn, the venue has informed the Trump campaign if they don’t pay it, they can’t use the arena. The Trump campaign has hit back, noting that Secret Service is the one who is providing security for the event.

Additionally, the Minneapolis Police Department suddenly announced a new policy that prohibits off-duty police officers from wearing their uniform to political events – right before many of the officers were planning to sit behind Trump in the VIP section at the rally.  Hitting back, the officers are now planning to all wear red “cops for Trump” T-shirts.

President Trump lashed out again at the mayor in a fresh set of tweets Tuesday afternoon:

Radical Left Dem Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, is doing everything possible to stifle Free Speech despite a record sell-out crowd at the Target Center. Presidents Clinton and Obama paid almost nothing! The Minneapolis Police have been incredible….

….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!
