Trump says Minneapolis would have burned down without him, that he won 'out of control' Minnesota

Former President Donald Trump is again falsely claiming he won Minnesota in the 2020 election while describing the state as "out of control," attacking Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar and suggesting Minneapolis would have "burned down to the ground" that same year if not for him.

Trump's comments came during a pair of interviews. One was posted Thursday by the conservative outlet Alpha News ahead of his Friday visit to the state. In the other interview with KSTP, Trump falsely claimed he won Minnesota in 2020 when he lost to President Joe Biden by about 7 percentage points.

Minnesota DFL Chair Ken Martin quickly condemned Trump's claim that he won Minnesota.
