Trump campaign slams Minneapolis mayor, Target Center for ‘attempting to extort’ them with rally security fees

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 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.

The release says the Minneapolis city government “preemptively” informed the Target Center of the costs. The Target Center attempted to charge the campaign for the security fee, warning the president may not be able to use the arena without the payment, according to the release.
