The $211,175.94 bill stems from a rally held in 2019 by Trump’s reelection campaign in the nearby city of Rio Rancho. According to the Albuquerque Journal, Trump stayed overnight in Albuquerque while in the area for the Sept. 16 rally, forcing the city to shut down city hall and other parts of downtown.
The city later invoiced Trump’s campaign for the extra police coverage, road barricades and for the paid leave given to city employees whose workdays were cut short on both Sept. 16 and Sept. 17, 2019, the newspaper reported.
Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller recently discussed the city’s attempts to collect the payment on "The Daily Show."
"In my mind, he owes us a lot more because there was about a day and a half where we couldn’t even function as a city," Keller, a Democrat, said during the appearance.
Keller said "no phone calls had been returned," so the city hired a collection agency.
"He should be getting these annoying voicemails that, like, we get usually from scam companies where it’s like, ‘You owe debts,'" Keller told "The Daily Show." "I mean, I think Mar-a-Lago is now getting those calls."
What I find amusing is that a so-called mayor and city leader shut down public services for a couple of days so President Trump could spend the night in his shitty. I don't know why they felt that was necessary but surely if he thinks he has a right to go after monies he thinks are owed for shutting down his city hall don't all the businesses in his city have the same right to go after the city in court for all the money they lost out on due to the deliberate democratic sabotage of all businesses because they ordered them closed in all the blue states in fear of a virus slightly more dangerous than the flu and what's more, a virus that will roam this planet now forever so how did they think shutting down for a couple of weeks spared anybody even after they extended their shutdowns by more than a year?
It's also funny that he thinks the campaign has to pay for his idiocy. I don't know about the other presidential candidates but the Secret Service protects the President and some others and they usually pay for what they require.
Do dipshits like him make BLM and antifaggots pay for shutting down local business when they riot and destroy people's businesses as the police stand around watching and doing nothing?
