A Pennsylvania city mayor has demanded that Donald Trump reimburse a $35,000 bill from 2018 ahead of his planned return for a campaign rally on Saturday.

Joe Schember, the mayor of the western Pennsylvania city of Erie, told Erie Times-News that their pleas to seek a bill for Mr Trump’s campaign for the rally in October 2018, which attracted a crowd of 12,000 people, have gone unheard nearly for five years.

"I think we have to try, and I feel like my team feels the same way," Mr Schember said.

Despite the unpaid bill, city officials and the police have begun logistical and staffing preparations for the 2023 event, Mr Schember said.

According to the Federal Election Commission filings, the Trump campaign had more than $35.4m on hand at that time.

A local resident of Erie has launched a petition to “ban Trump from Erie until he pays his bill to the city” over his unpaid dues.

Joshua Makowski said the city should not allow “anyone to use city services and not pay their bill” and said Mr Trump should be held accountable for his first bill. »

“Teachers and students who openly fight against far-right students and teachers fear for their safety,” the two said in the letter they sent to local newspapers. »
