MINNEAPOLIS — President Donald Trump invited Lt. Bob Kroll, the head of the Minneapolis police union, to the stage Thursday night.
The president said Kroll was instrumental in helping his presidential campaign and the popularity of the “Cops for Trump” shirts.
The $20 red shirts were already selling fast earlier in the week but then Tuesday morning, Kroll appeared on Fox News talking about what prompted the shirts. A new policy says off-duty Minneapolis police officers cannot wear their uniforms while they’re endorsing a political party, candidate or campaign. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey said the policy was in the works long before President Trump’s planned visit this week.
