President Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally at Target Center in downtown Minneapolis on Thursday.

Minneapolis city officials say they're unsure how much money the city will have to spend for security and other services during President Donald Trump's campaign visit this week - but they believe it's going to be expensive.

As the presidential race heats up, the burden on cities to provide security and coordination assistance is mounting. With official presidential visits, cities typically shoulder the extra security costs. But Trump's campaign rally at Target Center this Thursday is forcing Minneapolis city officials to reckon with something other cities nationwide have experienced: Tens of thousands of dollars in unreimbursed costs.
