While off-duty Minneapolis police officers attending the Trump rally are not allowed to wear their uniforms, a second option has emerged. Bob Kroll of the Minneapolis Police Union made a Facebook post showing a shirt that union members can buy. Earlier this week, Kroll criticized the change in policy banning uniforms, saying the move was anti-Trump. It's a change from a longtime policy, one of the reasons Kroll says he's against it. Kroll says he believes the new rule is only because the president is Republican and disliked by many city leaders. He also says he questions why the change came just a week before Trump's rally.
