A historic nightclub in Minneapolis located just across the street from Target Center, the site of President TrumpDonald TrumpChinese apps could face subpoenas, bans under Biden executive order: report Kim says North Korea needs to be 'prepared' for 'confrontation' with US Ex-Colorado GOP chair accused of stealing more than 0K from pro-Trump PAC MORE’s planned campaign rally on Thursday night, inflated a giant balloon depicting the president as an orange baby on its roof ahead of his arrival.

Footage and pictures circulating across Twitter showed the diaper-clad balloon strapped to the roof of the First Avenue nightclub on Thursday afternoon, just hours before Trump’s planned rally at the Target Center across the street is due to start.

Dayna Frank, the CEO of First Avenue, told The Hill that the business has used its venues “to give candidates on both sides a platform, including those with whom we don’t agree, but the actions and policies of this administration are in direct conflict to First Avenue’s core values.”

“First Avenue is standing with our community, and standing up for our beliefs, letting the world know we do not accept this President’s divisive rhetoric. When we were approached about hosting the balloon, we said yes,” she continued.

The move comes days after the company captured headlines for announcing plans to donate all of the profits it earns  from its businesses located across the street from Target Center on Thursday night to Planned Parenthood North Central States.


During the president’s planned rally on Thursday, the nightclub, which made an appearance Prince's 1984 film Purple Rain, is also reportedly expected to host two concerts. 

The demonstration arrives amid a feud this week between Trump and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey (D) over security fees for the event.

The president and his campaign attacked Frey in a heated back and forth over Twitter after his campaign claimed the city assessed a $530,000 price tag to cover security fees for the rally. 

Frey said in an interview released on Thursday that he has been targeted as a result and has "received everything from anti-Semitic rhetoric to threats" after trading jabs with the president and his campaign over the matter. He also said some attacks extended to his wife, Sarah Clarke. 

“Someone commented that she was trying to hide her identity because she has a different last name from me. It’s not hiding her identity, that’s championing her own identity. She does exceptional things and [a woman] can support her partner without being synonymous with him,” Frey added.
