Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “Federal government denies Minnesota governor's plea for aid to help rebuild after George Floyd riots”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

As Twitchy reported recently, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz sent a letter to President Trump requesting a federal disaster declaration to deal with damage from the late May rioting in Minneapolis and St. Paul after video of George Floyd’s death at the hands of a white police officer went viral.

Damage to public infrastructure, including debris removal and damage to public buildings and equipment totals $15.6 million, Walz says.

More than 1,500 businesses were damaged by vandalism, looting or fires, causing at least $500 million in damage.

The consensus on Twitter seemed to be a solid “No,” and apparently that’s Trump’s answer as well.

Great news! @realDonaldTrump has DENIED Minnesota's disaster request to repair half a billion dollars in damage from the riots. Governors and Mayors who ordered police to stand down and watch their cities burn shouldn't get a penny in taxpayer aid! https://t.co/8WAgm7AFa7
