Police: Officers were not ordered to 'stand down' during Trump protests
Minneapolis police officials on Monday denied charges that their officers were ordered to "stand down" during protests last week outside a fundraiser for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump that produced a few tense moments, but no arrests.
Police didn’t report any serious injuries or property damage at the private function at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Friday night, which was attended by dozens of wealthy Trump donors. Tickets ran from $1,000 per person to 100,000 per couple.
Trump, on his first trip to the state since sewing up the GOP nomination, did not make a public appearance.
