Will Trump’s thug secret police be in Minneapolis soon?

I’m doing this one in a hurry, and I’m taking for granted that if you visit this blog you are aware of what’s been going on in Portland, Oregon. With that in mind:

Trump did not say who “they” were, but it’s not hard to guess what the things are. Because a day earlier, Trump made it clear that one of the “detailed” and “thoughtful” things he has planned for next week is a federal takeover of multiple cities from “the left-wing group of people” that voters have elected as governors, mayors, and other local leaders. “Next week, we’re going to have, I think, a very exciting news conference because we’re going to be talking about some of these cities that — where the Democrats running them have just lost control of the cities. So that’ll be very interesting.”
(Daily Kos)

I don’t see how you don’t conclude that Minneapolis is at or near the top of Trump’s list.

Oregon’s leaders are going to court, looking to put an end to this horror show, despicable and hugely concerning even by Trump’s grotesquely degraded standards. So we’ll find how that goes.

It will also be interesting to see whether Minnesota’s Party of Trump electeds, especially those holding seats at all near the metro, cheer their hero on.

Update: As a matter of fact he specifically targeted Minneapolis, last week.

UpdateX2: Yesterday, Trump bloviated again about sending his goons to more cities. But Minneapolis wasn’t specifically included, this time. Probably just slipped his “mind.”

Thanks for your feedback. If we like what you have to say, it may appear in a future post of reader reactions.
