President Trump blasted Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey Tuesday morning, over controversy that has arisen about the president’s scheduled MAGA rally in that city on Thursday.

Trump re-tweeted a post from his 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale, who wrote, “The radical Mayor of Minneapolis, @Jacob_Frey, is abusing his power in an attempt to block the President’s supporters from seeing him speak on Thursday. We refuse to be bullied by a left-winger resister & won’t let him stifle the speech of @realDonaldTrump or his supporters!”

After Trump’s rally was announced, Frey declared that Trump’s “message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”

The Minneapolis Police Department then 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.

Parscale also blasted the mayor for suddenly hitting the venue with a $530,000 bill to provide security at the Trump rally. In turn, the venue has informed the Trump campaign if they don’t pay it, they can’t use the arena for the rally.  The Trump campaign has hit back, noting that Secret Service is the one who is providing security for the event – which is being held in Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district.

President Trump lashed out in a series of Twitter posts, as follows:

The lightweight mayor is hurting the great police and other wonderful supporters. 72,000 ticket requests already. Dump Frey and Omar! Make America Great Again!

Thank you to Lt. Bob Kroll of the great Minneapolis Police Department for your kind words on @foxandfriends. The Police are fighting the Radical Left Mayor, and his ridiculous Uniform Ban. Actually, I LOVE the Cops for Trump shirts. Want to bring some home. I am with you 100%!!!!

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!
