President Trump (@realDonaldTrump), early Friday morning at about 12:53 a.m. took to twitter to lash out at the Mayor of Minneapolis. Trump tweeted, “I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.”

The President followed up with a second tweet saying, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

Twitter has put a public interest notice on the President’s tweet saying “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey at an early Friday morning press conference said that he was unaware of the President’s tweets. After a reporter read the tweets to the Mayor he responded saying “Weakness is refusing to take responsibility for your actions. Weakness is pointing your finger at somebody else during a time of crisis.”

Mayor Frey also said that “Donald Trump knows nothing about the strength of Minneapolis. We are strong as hell. Is this a difficult time period? Yes. But you better be damn sure that we’re gonna get through this.”
