AEG operates the city-owned arena. The city said that AEG must cover event-related police and city service costs. But AEG said it couldn’t because those would be considered campaign contributions, Star Tribune reported. But by Tuesday, after the Trump campaign threatened lawsuits, AEG said it would honor the contract and not charge any extra costs to Trump’s campaign.
Star Tribune noted that it wasn’t clear what had changed.
Meanwhile, Trump’s supporters have been lined up for hours before the rally is scheduled to begin.
Some were even lined up 12 hours before the rally was beginning, CBS Minnesota reported. Some were lined up in the streets and others on the Skyway, and some carried flags and other merchandise to show their support for the President.
Protesters also expected showed up for a “Love Trumps Hate” day, CBS Minnesota noted. A baby Trump balloon was flying on First Avenue before the rally.
Some protesters and supporters clashed at the Target Center.
This is a “Keep America Great” rally, which is Trump’s new campaign slogan for his re-election bid. His original slogan was “Make America Great Again.”
