Minneapolis mayor to Trump: Pay your bills

Source: StarTribune

Trump's campaign said it has reached an agreement with the rally venue operator and won't pay anything extra.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said Tuesday he would push President Donald Trumpís campaign to pay $530,000 in city costs associated with an upcoming Trump rally, while campaign officials said theyíve reached an agreement with the rally venue operator and wonít pay anything extra.

ďItís not extortion to expect someone to pay their bills,Ē Frey said in a news conference Tuesday.

There is a media clip embedded in the article of Mayor Frey talking with the press. (I wish I knew how to get a copy of it for this thread.)

Minneapolis Mayor Frey: "We have all seen the rhetoric pushed out at these Trump campaign rallies. It is hateful, it is divisive, and we do not welcome that kind of rhetoric here in Minneapolis. We value the strength of our diversity and we stand behind our wonderful city."
---------------------------------------------------
Bottom line, AEG caved and is letting the rally move forward with the extra security fees not being paid. The city has been clear, they will not absorb the cost.

1. Just so one knows whom AEG is,

It is none other than Phil Anschutz's Anschutz Entertainment Group. BTW,Anschutsz has been a major Donor to Trump Campaign as well as his reelection Campaign.

5. AEG is owned by Anschutz, a super right winger and an American oligarch.

Anschutz gave us Gorsuch. Anschutz will pay because Trumpís his guy and he can afford it.

8. Make him scream more. Make him scream non-stop. It's not helping him the way it used to.


In fact, quite the opposite. The more he screams the more the American public understands the problem.

10. Hopefully it will backfire and he will soon be speaking to empty rooms.

Seriously if people aren't horrified by him, they're part of the problem.

9. Read the article several times and am confused

O.K. - AEG is saying Trump can hold the rally. But, are they also paying the 530k$? "Extra security fees NOT being paid" Are they using the AEG security and not the city's?
