Donald Trump’s Flint Speech Interrupted by Black Church Pastor
A Donald Trump anti-Clinton speech has been cut short by the pastor of a Michigan black church.
Rev. Faith Green Timmons interrupted Donald Trump as he attacked his Democratic rival’s support for global trade deals.
The Bethel United Methodist Church pastor said: “Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech.”
“Oh, oh, OK, that’s good,” Donald Trump responded, shuffling papers on his podium.
Donald Trump went on to make a few remarks about fixing Flint’s drinking water problems, but some in the crowd began to heckle.
One woman shouted out that Donald Trump had used discriminatory housing practices in his buildings.
The Republican nominee responded: “Never, you’re wrong. Never would.”
Rev. Faith Green Timmons interrupted again, this time to reproach Donald Trump’s hecklers, saying: “He is a guest in my church and you will respect him.”
Donald Trump abruptly ended his speech, which had lasted six minutes.
