WASHINGTON — Minneapolis police officers rankled by a new department policy barring off-duty staff from wearing their uniforms to political events plan to instead swarm President Trump’s Thursday rally with a “sea of red” specialty T-shirts.

The policy change came the day after Trump announced he would host a rally in Minneapolis, and the head of the local police union argues it was a political move meant to favor the city’s Democratic officials. The police department for its part says the policy is about avoiding the appearance of political bias.

The article goes on to state the following:

But instead of the thin blue line appearing behind Trump on Thursday, there will be “a sea red T-shirts,” according to Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis. The shirt features the phrase “Cops for Trump” emblazoned across an American flag in the shape of Minnesota and will be sold both online and at the rally. All proceeds from the shirt sales will go to the union’s charity, Kroll said.

Fury has erupted among officers after the Minneapolis Police Department announced a new policy that prohibits off-duty officers from wearing their uniform to political events.

Kroll said he was informed of the new policy on Sept. 27, just one day after President Trump announced Thursday’s rally at Target Center, and after Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey declared that Trump’s “message of hatred will never be welcome in Minneapolis.”

    Things could get ugly if the Dems keep doing things to try and stop this rally from going forward.

    We have an entire party that is blind to any discussion except their own line.
    They have secretly been trying to destroy this President even before he was elected.
    They felt open borders, give away programs of money and our jobs was something the American public could do nothing about as most of the Republicans were globalists.
    Then came Mr. Break All the Rules Donald Trump. He literally smashed their game. He became the first President in over a century to actually try to act on his campaign promises. Even now as I listen to CNBC they are in disbelief. They call his program for jobs a good program for the 1950’s. They and their crowd gave up on America years ago. They can’t even fathom somebody loyal to the American workers.
    Their answer —-destroy him even if you have to use the FBI, CIA, DOJ or whatever.
    The tough part is they control most of the Press and many others even at FOX are so brainwashed with this America needs to surrender to the rest of the World, that it is going to be tough for the person on the street to realize what is at stake.
    It is the future of our kids and grandchildren.
    They want to destroy the rich, eliminate our jobs, produce a country with no middle class and no incentive to be a success at anything. In other words just another Soviet Union -one party controlling everything.
    We see them now going after the First and Second Amendments. Religion is already under attack. They are doing it through our schools and entertainment industry.
    Money and Power are their Gods.
    Our only alternative is Donald Trump.
