But he accidentally included journalists in the curfew:
Minneapolis @MayorFrey's emergency curfew order does not exempt journalists. Reporters who go out tonight to document any interactions with police and military could face 90 days in prison and a $1,000 fine.

And eventually, they’ll blame the president for the mayor’s error:
Trump is such a tyrant…. https://t.co/kVcA2zWk5e
