St. Paul Council Votes To Denounce Trump’s Comments
ST. PAUL (AP) - Councilors in Minnesota's capital plan to vote on a resolution this week that says Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump isn't welcome in St. Paul.
The proposed resolution before the City Council denounces Trump over his recent anti-Muslim statements. Trump wants to bar Muslims from entering the country.
Council member Dai Thao says they may not have authority to stop Trump from visiting, but the resolution will send a strong message that "bigotry isn't accepted here."
Minnesota is home to the largest Somali population in the United States.
