Flint Pastor Interrupts Trump When He Begins Criticizing Clinton


Donald Trump was stopped Wednesday afternoon during his speech at Great Faith Ministries International, a predominately African-American church in Flint, Michigan, when he began to bash Hillary Clinton.

"Hillary failed on the economy," Trump began, "Just like she has failed on foreign policy, just like everything she touched didn’t work out. Nothing."

Trump began his next talking point, "Now Hillary Clinton–," but stopped as soon as he noticed the pastor walking on stage.

"Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we have done in Flint, not to give a political speech," the pastor said, shaking his hand.

"Oh, OK, " Trump said, "That’s good, I’m going to go back to Flint then."

Trump visited the treatment plant at the center of the city of Flint’s water crisis earlier in the day before heading to Great Faith Ministries International.

Correction (5:51 p.m.): This article initially state the event happened in Detroit, Michigan. It was in Flint.
