Watch: Protester spits in Trump supporter’s face before rally in Minneapolis

A man wearing a red “MAGA” hat was surprisingly calm after someone appeared to spit on his face during an interview before President Trump’s Thursday rally.

David Carlson was outside the Minneapolis rally when the incident occurred. Vice News correspondent Elizabeth Landers asked him a question when an unnamed protester sullied his face with saliva, according to the outlet.

After the spit hit his face, Landers’ jaw dropped. “Oh nice,” Carlson responded in a sarcastic tone before laughing and wiping it off his face.

Carlson said he was “fine” and a man walked up to him to say sorry that it had happened to him. Someone else followed, claiming that the incident wasn’t representative of how people really felt.

“That’s f—–g disrespectful,” the unidentified man said. “But on the other hand, that s–t is disrespectful as f–k too,” he added, pointing at Carlson’s “Make America Great Again” hat.

Both Landers and VIce News Director Michael Learmonth seemed appalled by the event.

Protesters converged on Target Center, Minneapolis’ basketball arena, hours before Trump’s appearance, eventually packing the streets surrounding it. Many blew brightly colored whistles handed out by fellow protesters, adding to the din of frequent chants like, “Lock him up! Lock him up! Lock him up!” — referring to Trump himself. Some clutched helium-filled balloons depicting Trump as a baby, similar to the famed Baby Trump balloon that flew above a nearby building.

The protesters also set fire to Make America Great Again hats and other memorabilia in an effort to show their defiance to the current administration before police broke up the crowd. There were reports that multiple protesters were arrested. One report indicated that protesters threw urine.

Tom Homan hits back at liberal mayor of Minneapolis: He needs to ‘remember who he works for’

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey “needs to remember who he works for,” former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan said on Friday.

This reaction comes after President Trump ramped up his ongoing feud with Frey at a campaign rally on Thursday, calling him a “bad mayor” and attacking the city’s policy on refugee settlement.

The president vowed to give communities greater say in refugee policy and discussed reducing the refugee resettlement program. Minnesota, which is home to a large Somali immigrant population, also has the largest number of refugees per capita nationwide, with 13 percent of the country’s refugees, according to U.S. Census data.

Frey took to Twitter to hit back, writing that immigrants and refugees are welcome in his city.

Before the rally, Frey had issued a proclamation declaring Thursday “Love Trumps Hate” day in the city.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Homan agreed with the president’s message.

He told the “Friends” hosts that Frey is “not a dictator.”

“He works for the taxpayers of that city, and the taxpayers have the right to decide,” he said. “They pay school taxes. They pay property taxes. They should have a say in how that city runs.”

“So, shame on him,” said Homan. “I’ll tell him the same thing I told Representative [Pramila] Jayapal. They work for us, but they forget that.”

The Trump campaign blasted Frey earlier in the week after city officials proposed a fee of more than $500,000 for security at the Target Center for the rally.

Minneapolis police union boss hits back at mayor ahead of Trump rally

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093887954001_6093888836001-vs Minneapolis police union boss hits back at mayor ahead of Trump rally Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox news fnc/politics fnc article 0e4a5825-77c8-5fac-8942-7f9db54215cb

The head of the Minneapolis police union delivered impassioned remarks prior to President Trump’s reelection rally Thursday night, praising him for championing the rights of law enforcement officials across the country, before being called up on stage later on in the night to be recognized by the president.

“We’re seeing a lot of red cop shirts out here tonight because of the hypocrisy,” Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the  Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said at the “Keep America Great rally” at the Target Center in Minnesota. “They don’t want the police here when it’s a Republican who stands up for the police, but if it’s a Democrat we get a different story. Our cops are here as much as they could be in full force across the state.”

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE BAR OFF-DUTY COPS FROM WEARING UNIFORMS AT POLITICAL EVENTS AHEAD OF TRUMP RALLY

Just last week, the city rolled out a new rule that barred officers from appearing in uniform at political rallies or events, a move that raised eyebrows among Trump supporters, particularly cops, who questioned the timing of the new rule.

Kroll and other officers appeared at the rally in bright red “Cops for Trump” T-shirts, which Trump pointed to during the rally.

“I love you guys,” Trump said, giving Kroll a shoutout along with the rest of the police force before inviting him to join him and other union officers on the stage. “You are so great, so respected, you don’t even know how much our public loves you.”

“How can you thank this guy for everything he’s done for law enforcement? Wonderful president,” Kroll said in return.

Kroll also condemned Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who released a statement denouncing Trump’s visit to the city last week.

“Our entire city will not stand behind the president, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city — and this country — great,” said Frey, a Democrat. “While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”

“The mayor said the president wasn’t welcome but the Police Federation of Minneapolis begs to differ,” Kroll said as the crowd cheered.

Kroll slammed the Democratic Party, which has held sway in the state for close to 47 years, and which Trump is determined to flip in the upcoming election.

Minneapolis’ liberal mayor trying to ‘bully’ President Trump out of Minnesota, says head of police union

Westlake Legal Group 212aaa51-trump-split Minneapolis' liberal mayor trying to 'bully' President Trump out of Minnesota, says head of police union Julia Musto fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 67ccd467-bc04-5530-ae92-275053be5e45

The mayor of Minneapolis, a Democrat, is trying to “antagonize” and “bully” President Trump to discourage him from coming to the historically blue state, a police union leader said Tuesday.

Lieutenant Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said on “Fox & Friends,” that Mayor Jacob Frey is discriminating against Trump ahead of his upcoming rally at the Target Center on Thursday.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale accused Frey of “abuse of power” late Monday over a proposed $530,000 security fee to use the arena.

“It’s disparate treatment,” Kroll said. “They have not charged nearly that much for other events…”

A campaign press release states: “The radical leftist mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, is abusing the power of his office and attempt to extort President Trump’s re-election campaign by conjuring a phony and outlandish bill for security in an effort to block a scheduled Keep America Great rally.”

TRUMP TAKING CAMPAIGN TO ILHAN OMAR’S DISTRICT WITH PLANNED MINNEAPOLIS RALLY

The dispute came after Frey and Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced the implementation of a new rule barring off-duty officers from appearing in a uniform at political rallies or events. Officers will still be assigned as security.

The new rule quickly drew the ire of members of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, which sees the timing as a direct jab at the president, who is determined to flip the state’s 10 electoral votes to the GOP.

ILHAN OMAR SAYS TRUMP ‘TERRIFIED’ OF HER ‘INTERSECTIONALITY’ AS A WOMAN, IMMIGRANT, MUSLIM

Chief Arradondo pushed back at the notion that the move was political in a news conference last week, saying that the department is “not showing favor or bias toward a particular political party or candidate,” and that the step has been under consideration for a year after local constituents protested officers in uniform endorsing local and state politicians.

“I don’t want the Minneapolis Police Department to be politicized at all,” said Arradondo.

The police union has responded by creating red “Cops for Trump” shirts for the officers and others to wear, selling online for $20.

“In compliance with policy, we don’t want any issue,” Kroll noted. “So, we just thought you know what we’ll turn the place into a sea of red with the shirts we designed. And, they’re available and we can’t keep them on the shelves. They’ve been selling out as fast as they come in!”

Kroll pointed out that, under previous administrations, officers in Minneapolis were ordered to stand behind presidents, calling out local politicians as “very left.”

The Minneapolis police force is barring off-duty officers from appearing in uniform at political rallies or events, a rule enacted just a week before President Trump is to hold a reelection campaign rally in the historically blue state.

The new rule quickly drew the ire of members of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, which sees the timing of the new policy’s implementation as a direct jab at Trump, who is determined to flip the state’s 10 electoral votes to the GOP — no Republican has won the state since President Richard Nixon in 1972.

“For decades, the police federation has been allowed to appear in political ads [and] align themselves with political parties for our endorsement,” Minneapolis Police Department Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the police union, said on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday.

TRUMP TAKING CAMPAIGN TO ILHAN OMAR’S DISTRICT WITH PLANNED MINNEAPOLIS RALLY

“For many decades when you look back, because of the labor presence, unions have supported the DFL [Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party] and in the past it’s never been a problem.

“Minneapolis has been a Democrat city for decades. It’s never been a problem but because they’ve kind of turned their backs on the police and many other working people, we’ve shifted gears and we’ve been endorsing Republicans for the last several years, so now they’ve said no longer can you wear your uniform to support your political candidates.”

Police Chief Medaria Arradondo pushed back at the notion that the move was political in nature, saying at a news conference Tuesday that the police department is not “showing favor or bias toward a particular political party or a candidate,” and that the step has been under consideration for a year after local constituents protested officers in uniform endorsing local and state politicians.

“I don’t want the Minneapolis Police Department to be politicized, at all,” Arradondo said.

Trump is scheduled to hold a rally on Oct. 10 at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey immediately condemned the president’s visit in a statement posted to Twitter last week.

“On Oct. 10, our entire city will not stand behind the president, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city — and this country — great,” said Frey, a Democrat. “While there is no legal mechanism to prevent the president from visiting, his message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”

Frey defended the department’s decision, saying: “The Minneapolis Police Department is neither an ideological or political entity. It’s not Democrat. It’s not Republican. And we want people to understand that this is a neutral department.”

The rule will also prohibit uniformed officers from appearing on stage or within the backdrop of the president — or any political figures — although officers will still be assigned as security.

“If you look back in the past, when Bill Clinton appeared here, he was lined with blue because they directed our officers, against their will to be behind him in the backdrop,” Kroll said. “They made sure they had a diverse looking crew of uniformed officers behind Bill Clinton when he was here and this one, it’s exactly the opposite with President Trump coming.”

Democrats are so irrationally focused on impeaching President Trump they will hand the House of Representatives back to the GOP, according to National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Emmer.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her caucus will prevent the president from getting anything legislatively accomplished which will backfire, Rep. Emmer, R-Minn., told Neil Cavuto on “Your World.”

“Some of them live in a bubble — they think they’re winning,” he said.

Emmer said the NRCC will be releasing new polling later this week, and suggested to Cavuto the surveys will show two-thirds of voters in the districts the committee is targeting to “flip” to red believe the “Democratic-majority in the House is way too obsessed with their hatred of this president,” and would rather lawmakers work on common-sense bipartisan legislation.

TRUMP SAYS SCHIFF ‘HELPED WRITE’ WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT, AFTER HOUSE PANEL ADMITS ADVANCE KNOWLEDGE

“That’s why they’re going to lose the majority,” he concluded.

More from Media

In addition, Cavuto asked Emmer whether it was inappropriate for Trump to reportedly pressure Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison for information to help discredit former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation.

Emmer rejected the idea, saying it is instead inappropriate to have a political party — the Democrats — with an “obsession” of undermining the president.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump similarly slammed Democrats over their impeachment inquiry, specifically targeting Rep. Adam Schiff, the California Democrat who chairs the House Intelligence Committee.

“It shows that Schiff is a fraud. … I think it’s a scandal that he knew before,” Trump said of a report the Ukraine whistleblower reached out to the lawmaker’s committee before filing their complaint.

“I’d go a step further. I’d say he probably helped write it… That’s a big story. He knew long before, and he helped write it too. It’s a scam.”

Referring to Schiff  — who has long claimed to have surefire evidence that Trump illegally conspired with Russians — as “Shifty Schiff,” Trump characterized Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as a “fraudulent crime on the American people.”

Trump taking campaign to Ilhan Omar’s district with planned Minneapolis rally

President Trump‘s campaign announced it will hold a rally in Minneapolis next month in an attempt to flip the historically blue state in his favor ahead of the 2020 elections, a move that would take his “Keep America Great” message to the district of one of his most vocal critics in Congress, Rep. Ilhan Omar.

The announcement of the rally, set for Oct. 10 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, signaled Trump’s determination to flip the state’s 10 electoral votes which no Republican has won since then-President Richard Nixon took the state in 1972.

Trump came closest in 2016, falling short by roughly 45,000 votes to Hillary Clinton. He tweeted this past July, “because of American hating anti-Semite Rep. Omar, & the fact that Minnesota is having its best economic year ever, I will win the State!”

‘SQUAD’ MEMBERS CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT AFTER TRUMP RELEASES UKRAINE TRANSCRIPT: ‘WORSE THAN WE THOUGHT’

Trump and Omar, one of the progressive Democrats in “The Squad,” have been at loggerheads for months, with Trump calling Omar anti-Semitic for her critique of the U.S.-Israel alliance and her expressed support for Palestinians. She has denied being anti-Semitic.

At a July rally in North Carolina, responding to comments he made against the four congresswomen that critics deemed “racist,” Trump said of the “Squad,” “Let ’em leave… they’re always telling us how to run it, how to do this, how to do that. You know what? If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it.” Some in the crowd chanted “send her back,” much to the outrage of Democrats.

“Our beautiful state welcomes everyone with open arms,” Omar, a Somali-born refugee, tweeted Thursday following the announcement of Trump’s campaign stop. “But to be clear: we will continue to reject you and your campaign of lies and bigotry.”

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey also took aim at the president’s visit in a statement posted to Twitter.

“On October 10, our entire city will not stand behind the President, but behind the communities and people who continue to make our city– and this country– great,” Frey, a Democrat, said.

“Under ordinary circumstances, it would be an honor to welcome a sitting President of the United States to Minneapolis and to showcase all our city has to offer on the national stage. But these aren’t ordinary circumstances. Since taking office President Trump’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.”

“His message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis,” Frey continued.

Trump has slammed Omar repeatedly saying she’s blamed America for the economic crisis in Venezuela and has refused to condemn Al Qaeda.

She “smeared U.S. service members in ‘Black Hawk Down.’ She slandered the brave Americans trying to keep peace in Somalia,” Trump said at his Fayetteville rally in July.

Omar also gained criticism from Trump for downplaying the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on U.S. soil when she said that Muslims have garnered a negative perception because “some people did something” on 9/11. She had said the Council on American-Islamic Relations “was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.” CAIR actually was founded in 1994.

Trump tweeted a video that interwove Omar’s comments with footage of the Twin Towers after the attacks.

Minnesota couple charged in death of 21-month-old son who drowned in tub while they went shopping

A Minnesota couple have been charged with second-degree manslaughter for neglect of a child after their 21-month-old son drowned in a bathtub while they were out shopping for two hours, authorities said Tuesday.

The Hennepin County Attorney’s Office said in a statement that surveillance footage captured Sabina Pierre Louis, 25, and Eddy Pierre Louis, 54, at a Bloomington grocery store and a Walmart, leaving their three kids home alone.

Prosecutors said the parents told police that the children were asleep when they left for the stores. The couple assumed the children would remain asleep until they returned.

When the parents did return home, they found their 9-year-old daughter was still asleep, but their 4-year-old was in the bathroom. The victim, 21-month-old Asher Pierre Louis, was found floating in the tub; Eddy Pierre Louis told police water came out of the child’s mouth when he attempted CPR.

Minnesota student’s questionable school lunch post goes viral: ‘Sad excuse for a meal’

A Minnesota student’s Facebook post has gone viral after she shared an alarming image of a meal one school attempted to pass off as a suitable lunch – prompting officials to issue what many called a “condescending” apology.

Maryn Holler, a student at Apollo High School in St. Cloud, was left feeling both thankful and “sad” last week after she received what her school deemed an appropriate meal for lunch.

RHODE ISLAND SCHOOL DISTRICT TO GIVE COLD SANDWICHES TO STUDENTS WHO OWE LUNCH MONEY 

Sitting on a relatively empty tray were a handful of baby carrots, a packet of marinara sauce and – worst of all – an opened hot dog bun with melted cheese.

“I thank God everyday that my family has the money where I get to go home and eat actual food,” Maryn wrote in her Sept. 13 post.

“There are kids at this school who this is ALL THEY GET TO EAT, and we were given a hotdog bun with cheese. it’s honestly sad to know that we go to school and pay around 3 dollars for something that cost .50 cents to make.”

The post, which received over a thousand reactions and was shared over 900 times, sparked outrage among many people who called the platter a “sad excuse for a meal.”

“If your school ‘nutritionist’ didn’t notice this and who knows what else on the menu, I’m not sure I’d have much faith in their judgment going forward,” one user wrote. “The students at your school deserve so much better.”

Another comment read: “White bread, processed cheese, carrot sticks, and sugary juice…  the district nutritionist should be fired.”

“This is shameful,” one person added.

Prompted by the backlash, the St. Cloud Area School District issued a statement to their Facebook later that day.

“Oops! We goofed. Tried a new menu item today at lunch and we hear it was not a winner! Going forward, we will gather input from our students on new menu options. Thanks for the feedback!”

Many parents were further outraged by the apology, feeling that it lacked seriousness.

“The ‘Oops we goofed’ response is condescending and ridiculous,” one person commented. “No sensible person could have looked at that and thought that a ‘new’ menu item. At least be honest at what it was.”

Another parent added that she opts to have her children eat at school to “budget” but she expected more.

“’Oops we goofed’? You knew what you were doing and the lack of care going into the children’s meals. When I was in school I completely relied on my at school meal to get by, I’m so grateful that was before they started doing things like this. Those poor kids…,” another comment read.

Holler posted an update saying she met with her school principal about the lunch and was told she would have to meet with the district nutritionist.

“This is the start of something that could forever change my district.”

Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6087117830001_6087116212001-vs Minneapolis robberies ‘unacceptable,’ police chief says: ‘Has to be consequences’ Matt Finn fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/minnesota fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox news fnc/us fnc article 86e1937b-16e3-5e2b-82d5-f8cb90ae0a8c

Minneapolis police report 20 people have been arrested, 18 of them charged, in connection with two brutal mob-style robberies caught on tape in viral videos.

The suspects range in age from 15 to 27 and were charged with various counts of robbery relating to two vicious robberies in August in which mobs surrounded young men and beat them unconscious. Some suspects were charged with first-degree felony robbery, which carries up to 20 years in prison.

Police told Fox News mobs targeted “vulnerable” victims for valuables like cell phones.

Brendan O’Brien, 24, told Fox News he was out celebrating his birthday in Minneapolis when he was surrounded by one of the mobs and then beaten. The video appears to show O’Brien clinging to his belongings until he finally was knocked out.

VIDEOS OF MINNEAPOLIS ROBBERIES, MOB-STYLE BEATINGS GO VIRAL

“I didn’t realize how hard I’d been kicked in the face. It was much more brutal than I thought it was going to be. I assumed that they hit me a couple of times and I gave up and they went on their way but I was knocked unconscious,” O’Brien told Fox News.

O’Brien says he suffered a concussion and injuries all over his body. He now has trouble with memory, sleeping and has a sense of fear.

“I don’t feel as safe as I used to. I think that’s the best way of putting it is that something like this kind of takes a part away from you and I don’t know if I’m gonna’ get that back,” O’Brien said.

Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo told Fox News the attacks seen in the videos are abhorrent.

“It is truly unacceptable for me as chief and it’s unacceptable for our Minneapolitans,” Arradondo said. “No one wants to tolerate that type of criminal behavior.”

Police told Fox News a team of investigators worked for three weeks in partnership with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department to track down the assailants.

MINNEAPOLIS POLICE OFFICER SHORTAGE REACHING CRISIS LEVEL

“There has to be consequences for your actions,” Arradondo told Fox News. “I don’t want there to be a small group of people that feel that they can go unchallenged, unchecked.”

The videos appear to show groups of black men beating white males but Minneapolis police told Fox News the attacks do not qualify as hate crimes because the attackers didn’t target their victims for class or race. Rather, they were targeted because they were “impaired” or “compromised.”

The videos are emerging as Arradondo said his office is dealing with a crippling police shortage. He has requested a staggering 400 additional officers by 2025. But he said he has to convince an entire city council made up of some members that don’t want to add a single officer to the force.

“I’m going to continue to make the case and hopefully we’ll continue to get the resources that we need to help support the men and women who are doing this job,” Arradondo told Fox News.

So far, Mayor Jacob Frey has proposed 14 additional officers.

The public safety committee chair, Alondra Cano, told Fox News that the city council is now considering adding up to 30 or 40 additional officers to the force. However, the final number won’t be decided until a budget is passed in December.

Cano said a beefed-up police department might have been able to prevent or quickly solve the violent robberies seen on video.

“It was really concerning to me to see those videos and that’s not what I want people to feel Minneapolis is like or about,” Cano said. “We probably could have been able to connect some of these robberies together at an earlier time if we had more support and officers for our investigations unit.”

Cano told Fox News the city is investing in and diversifying its force to better represent the community along with investing in juvenile crime prevention programs.
