El Paso says Donald Trump still owes $569,204 for his February rally

The city attempted to charge him $470,417.05 for services related to his February rally and tacked on late fees after he didn’t pay.

President Donald Trump publicly pledged “all the support of the federal government” on Saturday after 22 people were shot to death in an El Paso Walmart this weekend.

But his statements are prompting charges of hypocrisy because the city claims the president’s political campaign owes an outstanding debt from a February campaign rally — specifically, more than half a million dollars.

On Monday, an El Paso city official said Trump has yet to pay.

According to Laura Cruz-Acosta, communications manager for the El Paso city manager’s office, the president has an outstanding bill of $569,204.63 for police and public safety services associated with a February campaign rally.

“The city staff have followed the process and procedures as it relates to any invoicing that we provide, and we will continue to do so accordingly as per city and state policies,” Cruz-Acosta said. She said that Trump owed an initial fee of $470,417.05 but that the city tacked on a 21% one-time late fee in June — 30 days after the campaign failed to pay the initial amount owed.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Is this the rally when Beto ran a competing El Paso rally at same time and said this?
"With the eyes of the country upon us, all of us together are going to make our stand in one of the safest cities in America. Not because of walls, but in spite of walls," O'Rourke said from the stage at the baseball field, where he stood with the sleeves of his white shirt rolled up on a blustery, cold February night.

"El Paso has been the safest city in the United States of America not in spite of the fact we are a city of immigrants but because we are a city of immigrants," he said.
I'd say he has some explaining to do.
