Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.

Costs for President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Minneapolis last month came in slightly higher than expected, and the city will continue to seek reimbursement, Mayor Jacob Frey said Tuesday.

After weeks of calculating the cost of police overtime, public works crews and road barriers, the city determined that it spent $542,733 - roughly $12,000 more than the original $530,000 cost estimate for the president's rally at the 19,356-seat Target Center. The event drew national attention after Frey and Trump sparred over who should cover costs for the event, which drew large protests around the downtown arena.
