President Trump rallies to flip Minnesota amid impeachment fight
When President Donald Trump rallies in Minnesota on Thursday he’ll bring not only his campaign roadshow to a state he nearly won in 2016, but a pressure cooker of conflicts ranging from battling House Democrats amid an escalating impeachment inquiry to now sparring with Republican allies over his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria.
After recent visits to other states the president lost in 2016 like New Hampshire and New Mexico, Thursday’s rally in Minneapolis is the latest example of the Trump campaign looking to expand their electoral map heading into 2020.
"[The president] would not come to a state and rally this early on unless he knew he could influence it and win it," Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told ABC News ahead of Thursday's rally.

You do realize that both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns have stiffed those cities which hosted rallies for their campaigns as well. It's not just the Trump campaign which has failed to pay for "additional security" often provided without any of the campaigns asking for it.
