Minnesota Gov. Walz asks Trump for disaster declaration after George Floyd riots trigger over $500M in damages

How does Walz walk around with balls that big???
Get the money from ActBlue, BLM, Antifa and the DNC.

FOX: Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has asked President Trump for a federal disaster declaration in his state due to “extensive fire damage” and other destruction in the unrest that followed George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody on Memorial Day.

“We need to come together to ensure Minnesotans who were victims of this destruction have access to critical infrastructure they need so they can go to the grocery store, pick up their medication, and live their lives,” Walz said in a statement Thursday. “Together, we will rebuild.” MORE

“We’re asking our federal partners to step up and help our communities recover,” he said.

Walz’s office estimates the cost of the damage to more than 1,500 businesses in Minneapolis and St. Paul at over $500 million.

  1. Use the money that Minneapolis will save by abolishing their police department to pay for the damage. After that, Minneapolis can then use those annual savings to … uh, pay for the continuing costs of destruction caused by having no police force.

  2. and thus the reasoning for stopping the Rioters and Looters.(preferably by shooting them on sight.)

  3. They don’t stand up against illegal and destructive activities, why should they be rewarded for it?

    Behavior that is rewarded is repeated, behavior that is punished is extinguished. Ask any competent behavioral psychologist.

  4. In all seriousness, if the Federal government subsidizes the lunatic policies of idiot state and local officials, all they will get are more lunatic policies of idiot state and local officials. I feel bad for productive citizens who suffered losses, but at some point these people need to learn hard lessons.

  5. This moron is counting on the up coming election to press for the relief thinking Trump will be desperate to carry the state and will give in.
    Corporations were funneling millions in donations to BLM, go get the money from them scumbag!!

  6. Nope. Minnesotans destroyed it of their own free will and accord; Minnesotans can fix it themselves. NOT a tornado; a hurricane; a flood; or a wildfire. The only disaster is the government of Minnesota and the people who elected it.

  7. Boy, I’m confused. We were told this was nothing more than wholesome, peaceful protesting. If federal troops were beyond the pale in response to wholesome, peaceful protesting, then federal money is also.

  8. Not one single penny should go to any state due to damage caused by the rioters. Very few liberal states or liberal cities did anything to stop them, so let those states and cities pay for it.

    BTW, the new rule is if you’re white you can’t defend yourself, you have the Soros circuit attorney in St. Louis going to charge the Liberal white couple for defending their property and lives. In Detroit you have the white couple being charged with felony assault for defending themselves against the crazy black women who instigated it and escalated it.

  9. President Trump should send a Washington bureaucrat to the Governors door to proudly announce “I am from the government and I am here to help you”!

  10. Let them bill the Universities that trained the SJW’s that led the mob. They have endowments into the billions.

  11. It’s not the federal government’s job to clean up after pisspoor management of local cities.

  12. Since Trump will likely lose Minnesota anyway he ought to turn them down flat saying that the actions of the state and municipal governments were almost entirely to blame for this fiasco the rest of the country should not have to pay for their idiocy.

  13. Business failing because of blue state lockdown? Worried that arson would look too suspicious if everyone does it at the same time? Antifa and BLM can partner with your local government to get federal cash for the loss of your defunct business. No risk, we own the local DA’s office. Call now! 1-800-GEO-SOROs to cover all your sedition needs – “we’ve got a plan for that”

  14. Remove and defund the minneapolis city council members, get rid of the mayor and the chief of police, and the deputy. Then we’ll talk.
    And if they do get any amount of money, even if it’s just 1,734 dollars, every move they make needs a progress report and receipts by the end of each week. No emails. Reports are hand delivered and explained. Every. Week. Somebody is getting frequent flyer miles. lol

    Oh! You get a little money every week, only if you’re on schedule. If not- your money gets reduced.
