And he still dares to take pot-shots at Trump
Mayor Frey Asks Trump for Help After Minneapolis Rioters Cause Millions in Damage
Mayor Jacob Frey (D) is seeking federal aid to help Minneapolis recover from the protests and riots that have wrecked the area.
“With at least $55 million in estimated damage and far more to come, Minneapolis will need state and federal aid as it attempts to rebuild hundreds of structures after the riots following George Floyd’s death,” Frey explained on Thursday, according to the Star Tribune.
The report continued:
City officials are still putting together a complete tally of the destruction and cautioned that estimates are likely to rise significantly. Gov. Tim Walz and members of Minnesota’s congressional delegation are trying to get government assistance to offset that cost. But in the past, neither the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) nor Congress has consistently sent federal funding to cities ravaged by riots.
In an interview, Frey said he expected the total cost of the damage to be in the “tens, if not hundreds of millions” of dollars across the Twin Cities.
“We will do everything we can as we shift to recovery mode. We’re recovering from crises sandwiched on top of each other, from COVID-19 to the police killing and then the looting which took place afterward,” he noted.
However, Frey hit back at President Trump on May 29 after he criticized his handling of the violent protests and riots, according to Breitbart News
