Minneapolis police officers on bikes dealt with traffic outside Target Center on Wednesday, a day before President Donald Trump's rally there.

The company that operates Target Center told the city of Minneapolis that it could not cover the city's costs for President Donald Trump's re-election rally Thursday because that would be considered a campaign contribution, city records show.

The city says its contract with AEG, which operates the city-owned arena, requires the company to cover event-related police and other city services, estimated at $530,000 for the Trump rally. But AEG warned that if the campaign didn't pay those costs, it would have to cancel the event, according to an e-mail sent by an AEG official to the city Saturday.
