It's been a busy morning for President Donald Trump, who is just days away from holding a rally at Target Center in Minneapolis.

It started with the president tweeting his thoughts on Minneapolis mayor, Jacob Frey, and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Trump's tweet didn't go unnnoticed by Frey.

President Trump continued following Frey's tweet.

And another response from Frey:

Senator Amy Klobuchar, in Golden Valley for an event on Minnesota elections, took her presidential opponent to task, suggesting he should meet with people all over Minnesota.

"You know what I wish he would do, maybe he goes to one of our closed ethanol plants," she said. "Or maybe he goes to meet with one of our soybean farmers, whose soybeans are mounting up in their bins while he's in the middle of a trade war."

Klobuchar, running for the Democratic presidential nomination, said the president is always welcome to Minnesota.

"But, it is the divisive rhetoric, and the mean-spirited talk about immigrants and about people of color that he just won't stop doing," she said.
