President Donald Trump greeted cheering crowds at Minneapolis' Target Center in October 2019.

Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey expects to announce a negotiated deal Thursday to recoup $100,000 from Target Center operator ASM Global for the cost of hosting President Donald Trump's October 2019 rally at the city-owned arena.

"We are recovering half of what we can get under the law," Frey said, adding: "We have a duty to protect free speech, but we don't have a duty to subsidize it."

The deal is subject to City Council approval and could come up for a vote as soon as Feb. 12.
