President Trump is set to speak in Minneapolis Minnesota next Thursday October 10th for a Keep America Great Rally. Earlier this week we posted an article on the mayor of Minneapolis Jacob Frey wanting to ban the rally if he legally could. Now domestic thugs ANTIFA are planning a protest outside of the rally. ANTIFA has a violent past and is sure to be upset at Trump entering the hometown of Rep Ilahn Omar.
“Trump is having a campaign rally in downtown Minneapolis. He wants to keep America great, but … AMERICA IS CANCELED,” said the notice posted on It’s Going Down, an online anti-fascist forum. “Join us to celebrate with an anti-capitalist bloc.”
The notice asked activists to “bring your friends, bring your crew and come prepared to disrupt the nightmare that is Trump,” while the site predicted “thousands” would show up “in opposition to Trump and his world.”
Mayor Jacob Frey said the Republican president’s “actions have been reprehensible” and “his rhetoric has made it clear that he does not value the perspectives or rights of Minneapolis‘ diverse communities.”
While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” said Mr. Frey in a statement.Source Washington Times
City council president Lisa Bender said the event would cause “stress and fear,” adding that the president’s “hate is not welcome in our community but we cannot stop the visit.”
Mr. Trump has visited Minnesota four times in the last 16 months, most recently an April trip to Burnsville, as his campaign seeks to flip the traditionally blue state in 2020.
Meanwhile, Republican Party of Minnesota chairwoman Jennifer Carnahan said she was “overjoyed” to welcome Mr. Trump back to Minneapolis.
“He has fulfilled his campaign promises to get our economy booming again, put America first, and has made this country great again,” Ms. Carnahan said in a statement. “We are excited for the rally on October 10th and look forward to showing the Democrats how enthusiastic Minnesota Republicans are to send our 10 electoral votes to re-elect President Trump in 2020.”
