Feds deny Walz's request for aid to rebuild after riots (disaster area after Biden rally)
Star Tribune via MSN ^ | 7/11/20 | Ryan Faircloth

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz's request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd's death.

Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a "major disaster" for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd's May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz.

The governor's spokesman, Teddy Tschann, confirmed late Friday that the request for federal aid was denied.

"The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support," Tschann said in a statement. "As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state's history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through."

Many small businesses and grocery stores, pharmacies and post offices were damaged during the unrest. In his letter to FEMA, Walz said what happened in the Twin Cities after Floyd's death was the second most destructive incident of civil unrest in U.S. history, after the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.

I agree with this. This is a product of your gross mismanagement, so you fix it.

Typical demonicRAT. Refuses President Dr. Trump's offer of Federal assistance BEFORE and DURING the riots but now he comes begging for help afterwards.

As if any of that money would go to those who lost their business or livelihood.

President Trump should say, "Okay, fine. Give me a list of the people who you want the money to go to and we'll write them the check.

That's probably the main reason why the aid got denied.

The money would have went to "community" groups and BLM.

The Governor did nothing to stop the riots and looting. He should be forced out of office since he choose not to do his job.

I agree. No money to any state or city that failed to end the riots on day one.

There’s gonna be some very important lessons that the left is going to have to learn the hard way and it’s formerly great cities that are going to get destroyed by them such as Minneapolis ; New York ; Chicago ; Atlanta St. Louis. List goes on Very important lesson for America was what we just witnessed in Seattle with chop or Chaz And now the leftists there are going more nuts They don’t have any good ideas. They just regurgitate old Soviet slogans All these ideas have been tried. And failed. Ask Venezuela If you’re head of law enforcement. And you don’t or won’t enforce the law That’s on YOU The libs are so used to bring SAFE in elections. One party dominance. For generations. That they think they really don’t have to LEAD. OR GOVERN This was very clear with Obama. He just wanted to play golf and party and vacation. Thank goodness ! President trump did not run for president to party 🎉 and play golf There’s never been anyone like DONALD J TRUMP

They’ve got a lot of nerve asking the rest of the USA to pay for the fruits of their basic incompetence.

We believe in capitalism. If there are businesses who want to rebuild, let them rebuild. If not, the residents of affected areas will just have to take the government subsidized bus to go to other areas where thriving businesses are still doing business.
