President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign blasted Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and said he was “attempting to extort” the campaign with a “phony” bill for security in an effort to stop a presidential rally slated for Thursday.

“Frey’s city government preemptively informed the Target Center (the site of the rally) that it would be responsible for $530,000 in security and other costs related to the event,” said a statement from the campaign. “The Target Center attempted to pass the costs on to the Trump campaign under threat of withholding the use of the arena.

“The Trump campaign informed the Target Center that the U.S. Secret Service is solely responsible for coordinating security and that withholding the use of the arena would be viewed as a breach of contract and result in court action."

The statement referred to Frey as “the radical leftist mayor of Minneapolis.”

And in a Monday tweet, campaign manager Brad Parscale added: “This is 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."

President Trump blasted Frey on Tuesday by tweeting: “The lightweight mayor is hurting the great police and other wonderful supporters. 72,000 ticket requests already. Dump Frey and (Rep. Ilhan) Omar! Make American Great Again.”

Frey tweeted in response: “Yawn... Welcome to Minneapolis where we pay our bills, we govern with integrity, and we love all of our neighbors.”
