An army of enthusiastic Trump supporters greeted the President outside a Minnesota venue in apparent protest of an order by the state’s Democrat governor, Tim Walz, and attorney general Keith Ellison limiting the OUTDOOR rally to just 250 people, citing COVID concerns. Experts have repeatedly said the risk of outdoor coronavirus transmission is so miniscule that it’s almost nonexistent.
President Trump greeted the massive overflow crowd that had waited for hours outside the Rochester, Minnesota venue in cold weather just to catch a glimpse of him.
“There are thousands of people [out here], all because the governor wants to play games,” Trump said as he walked toward the overflow crowd, which was fenced off behind a barricade.
Trump continued: “There are thousands of people injured by this. This should be a lesson [for Walz].”
During the rally, the President blasted Minnesota’s Democrat governor Tim Walz and Attorney General Keith Ellison.
Reminder: Ellison was a former Congressman who was accused of beating up his ex-girlfriend.

Trump said Walz and Ellison were totally lax toward Black Lives Matter rioters who had torched and looted Minneapolis in August, but tried to suppress his outdoor MAGA rally because they’re left-wing hypocrites.
“We’re given a very very hard time by your so-called leaders, but they’re not very good leaders as you found out during the riots,” Trump said. “There are at least 25,000 people who wanted to be here tonight. We just saw a lot of them and wanted to pay our respects. They were here for a long time. They waited and waited.”
Trump continued: “When large numbers of rioters and vandals sacked Minneapolis earlier this year, Keith Ellison did not ask them to submit a permit. He told the throngs of violent demonstrators, ‘By all means, exercise your First Amendment rights!'”
Trump added: “Keith Ellison sided with flag-burning extremists over law-abiding Americans. He treats you like second-class citizens. He believes that the pro-American voters have fewer rights than anti-American demonstrators. Keith Ellison and Joe Biden want to imprison you in your homes while letting anarchists, agitators, and vandals roam free.”
Twitter videos captured the enormous crowd of Trump supporters, who were not deterred by their governor’s orders or the cold weather.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said: “The Liberal Democrat Governor of Minnesota tried to shut us down by only allowing 250 inside President’s ‘peaceful protest,’ but the Gov FAILED. Minnesota showed up for President Trump OUTSIDE his rally‼️”

In nearby St. Paul, Democrat Joe Biden held a meager dueling rally, where Trump supporters outnumbered Biden supporters by a huge margin.

Reminder: President Trump could flip longtime blue state Minnesota — for the first time in 48 years.
The fact that Biden felt pressured to hold a dueling rally in Minnesota suggests the Left is terrified of losing the Democrat stronghold.
