President Trump’s reelection campaign slammed the mayor of Minneapolis and the Target Center for “attempting to extort” the campaign with security fees for a rally scheduled this week.

Campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted a press release Monday that accused Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey of charging the Target Center $530,000 in security fees with the intention of stopping the rally scheduled for Thursday.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The radical leftist mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, is abusing the power of his office and attempting to extort President Trump’s re-election campaign by conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security in an effort to block a scheduled Keep America Great rally,” the release states.

According to the report, the Target Center informed the campaign they couldn’t use the arena for the rally unless they reimbursed them for the security fee. The campaign responded that security for the event falls exclusively under the U.S. Secret Service’s purview, and warned they will take the matter to court over breach of contract if the event is not allowed to go forward.
