The liberal mayor of Minneapolis banned his police officers from wearing their uniforms to the Trump rally.

In response, the cops made their own t-shirts and they are selling out.

According to The Daily Caller:

According to Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, the new policy was implemented just after Frey learned that President Donald Trump was planning to hold a rally in his city.

Frey had responded to the Trump team’s planned rally with a statement, saying, “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.”

Kroll argued that the new policy was purely political, and responded by designing the t-shirts. “We’ll turn the [Trump rally] into a sea of red with these shirts we designed,” he told “Fox & Friends.”

 

President Trump responded to Kroll on Twitter, thanking him for his support. “Thank you to Lt. Bob Kroll of the great Minneapolis Police Department for your kind words on @foxandfriends. The Police are fighting the Radical Left Mayor, and his ridiculous Uniform Ban. Actually, I LOVE the Cops for Trump shirts. Want to bring some home. I am with you 100%!!!!” he said.

  This decision follows a decision by the mayor to charge the Trump campaign over $500,000 for security at a campaign rally compared to $20,000 for Obama.
