Jacob Frey, the Democratic mayor of Minneapolis, said he has been the target of threats and anti-Semitic remarks stemming from his ongoing feud with President Donald Trump, the Daily Beast is reporting.

At issue is a $530,000 bill the city is charging for security and other costs related to a Thursday Trump rally at the city's Target Center.

Trump has blasted Frey on Twitter, calling him a "lightweight" and urging voters to dump the mayor.

Frey has responded to Trump by tweeting: "Welcome to Minneapolis where we pay our bills . . ."

Now, Frey is telling the Daily Beast: "I've received everything from anti-Semitic rhetoric to threats, and it's disconcerting to say the least," Frey said.

Sarah Clarke, his wife, has also been a target.

The mayor said: "Someone commented that she was trying to hide her identity because she has a different last name from me. It's not hiding her identity, that's championing her own identity. She does exceptional things and [a woman] can support her partner without being synonymous with him."

But Frey said he is not about to change.

"To the extent that Trump tries to divide us, our community will stand by one another," Frey said, adding "As a mayor, you're not fully doing your job unless you're pissing a chunk of people off."
