The Trump administration rejected a request for $500 million in federal aid from Minnesota, pointing to the failure of Democrat Governor Tim Walz and Minneapolis Democrat Mayor Jacob Frey to stop the damage that occurred in response to the death of George Floyd.
“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” Walz said in a statement at the start of the month, per Daily Wire. “We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives. Together, we will rebuild.”

According to reports, the Trump administration did not approve the funds because the mayor and governor did not stop the damage in the first place.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” Walz’s office said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
