Trump campaign threatens to sue Minneapolis Target Center for asking them to pay $530,000 in rally-related expenses up front

Published

Minnesota, which went to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016, is among the midwestern states that President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign would love to flip in 2020 — and a Trump rally was scheduled for this Thursday, October 10 at the Target Center in Minneapolis. But Trump’s reelection campaign, according to Minneapolis’ KTTC-TV, is threatening to sue the Target Center for asking the campaign to pay for expenses associated with the event up front.

KTTC reports that in a letter sent to the Target Center on Monday, the 2020 Trump campaign alleges that it was asked to pay $530,000 up front to cover security and other expenses and would withhold use of the facility if it didn’t receive that payment. And in the letter, according to KTTC, Trump’s campaign describes the bill as “an outrageous abuse of power by a liberal mayor trying to deny the rights of his own city’s residents just because he hates the president” and notes that the U.S. Secret Service handles security-related costs of such events.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey was elected in 2017 as a member of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL), which was formed in 1944 when the Minnesota Democratic Party merged with the Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party. Before becoming mayor, Frey served in the Minneapolis City Council.

Located in Downtown Minneapolis, the Target Center is an arena that is often used for sporting events as well as concerts.

Russia knows they “they can’t win without a third-party candidate,” Clinton told David Plouffe on his podcast Campaign HQ, as Mediaite reports.

GOP giving up trying to reclaim House seats as 2020 wipeout looms: report

Published

on

Faced with a ticket likely headed by an unpopular president and watching the Democrats rake in campaign cash ahead of the 2020 election, the Republican Party is conceding they will not win back the House by reclaiming seats they lost in the so-called 2018 "blue wave" election.

According to a report from Politico, Democratic candidates have been stockpiling massive amounts of cash to wage war in what is expected to be a high turnout election with Donald Trump as the face of the Republican Party and seats that the GOP thought they might have a shot at now appearing unattainable.

Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech

Published

on

President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.

Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.

"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."

In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.

He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.

"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.
