The Trump administration has denied a request by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz (D) for $16 million in federal aid to help rebuild widespread damage in Minneapolis caused by rioters protesting the death of George Floyd.

Late Friday, Walz spokesman Teddy Tschann confirmed that the July 2 federal aid request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was denied.

The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said Tschann 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.”

Over 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism following Floyd’s death on May 25 while in police custody. According to Walz, over $500 million in damages ensued.

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.

The Walz administration conducted a preliminary damage assessment that found nearly $16 million of eligible damages related to fires. The federal funds would have been used to reimburse local governments for repairs and debris removal. –Star Tribune

On Thursday, Republican Rep. Tim Emmer (MN) sent a letter to President Trump asking for a “thorough and concurrent review” of how state officials handled the civil unrest so that “every governor, mayor and local official can learn from our experiences.”

“If the federal government is expected to assist in the clean-up of these unfortunate weeks, it has an obligation to every American — prior to the release of funding — to fully understand the events which allowed for this level of destruction to occur and ensure it never happens again,” wrote Emmer.

“Current damage estimates are now five times their original projections, but the extent of the destruction cannot be calculated solely in dollars and cents,” continues Emmer’s letter. “Thousands of livelihoods have been permanently disrupted, future economic development plans have been derailed as businesses reconsider investing in and around the Twin Cities, and numerous public lifelines for the community have been cut leaving Minnesotans searching for alternative means of care for their families.

“To date there have been no federal analysis of the actions that were – or were not – taken by local and state officials to prevent one of the most destructive episodes of civil unrest in our nation’s history.

  1. I think all these Baffoon’s was just waiting to make some fast money and they did. Soros paid all of them to Riot Anifta got paid too. Soros hate’s Trump so bad he will pay any amount to try and get him not to become Our President. Here is something for People to read and let it sink in….

    George Floyd was on a government watchlist, new information reveals
    “The federal government maintains names of people who may be associated with a known suspect themselves, or are under “reasonable suspicion” of involvement in an extremest group or terrorist activity.”
    (INTELLIHUB) — It’s no big secret anymore that George Floyd already died in Corpus Christi where he attended Texas A&M University-Kingsville in the mid-to-late 1990s and that the most recent death of “George Floyd” by cop was created to further the racial divide in America during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election but now new information has surfaced which reveals Floyd has been watchlisted by the federal government.“George was buried here in the paupers cemetery,” Attorney at Law Timothy D. Japhet posted on Facebook.Japhet claims to have represented Floyd as his legal guardian before his death in Corpus Christi in 2016.Japhet maintains that the ‘George Floyd’ in which authorities claim died in Minneapolis on May 25, 2020 from fatal injuries after purported police officer Derek Michael Chauvin took a knee to Floyd’s neck while making an arrest over a counterfit bill.“So this guy……. and this guy….. are the same guy?” The attorney questioned in a June 2 Facebook post. “He was so ravaged from life he looked nothing like himself, but yeah Red Shirt George Floyd with his sis that’s him. They called him “Slow”…..The man they got in Minnesota? No clue. But “Slow” was a good guy, I would like to think he would be confused as to why anyone would steal his name.”“Red Shirt George was buried here in the paupers
    Moreover, Japhet confirms: “George Floyd, died in Corpus Christi, TX in early 2016.”“I was his Ad Litem based on a request from the Hospital to appoint a Guardian….b” he had stroked out on some bad legal. They needed a decision-maker. I got the assignment to investigate.” Additionally, the attorney at law posted the following to Facebook on June 14: “TX George Floyd was on a gurney waiting for an ICU bed. He was alert, he gave me his name, year of birth, 1967 and when I asked him about any relatives, he said he had a sister in Minnesota or call out to Texas A&I because they knew him.” However, the story gets even wilder after an independent investigator attempted to look up George Floyd’s death certificate online and found that Floyd had been watchlisted by the U.S. government.
    The message reads: “Government Watchlist Notice.”

    “The federal government maintains names of people who may be associated with a known suspect themselves, or are under “reasonable suspicion” of involvement in an extremest group or terrorist activity.” “So, I can’t go any further because he was on a government watchlist–which is interesting to me because I didn’t realize that there was any secrets about George Floyd other than the fact that he was just killed by a cop so why should he be on a government watchlist? Shouldn’t he just be a dead guy killed by cops?”
