Pastor Cuts Off Donald Trump’s Speech After He Tried to Criticise Hillary Clinton in Church | WATCH

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was on Wednesday interrupted while giving a speech during his visit to a black church in Flint, Michigan, U.S.

Following Trump’s criticism of Hillary Clinton, a pastor, Faith Green Timmons, got to the stage to tell Trump that he was not invited to the church to talk politics.

According to Reuters, Trump criticised Clinton for her support of global trade deals, before pastor Timmons interrupted to tell him (Trump) that her church did not invited him to ‘give a political speech.’

Trump responded by saying ‘Oh, oh, OK, that’s good’ and shuffling papers on his podium at Bethel United Methodist Church.

The Republican presidential nominee, at that moment made a few remarks about fixing Flint’s drinking-water issues before departing.

Trump was visiting the city to view its water crisis first-hand and extend his recent outreach to African-American voters ahead of the November 8 election.

Polls show black voters largely favour Clinton.

Recall that Trump held an event at a black church in nearby Detroit earlier this month and pledged in recent speeches to help the black community, which he has described as being besieged by poverty and crime.

During his remarks on Wednesday, the New York real estate developer was also challenged by some members of the crowd of about 50 people, including a woman who accused him of discriminating against black renters as a landlord in the 1970s.

Earlier in the day, he toured Flint’s water-treatment plant, which has been shut down since lead was found in the water supply.

Residents of Flint asked a federal judge on Wednesday to order bottled water or filters be provided to them to prevent further lead exposure, 2-1/2 years after the city’s water supply was found to be contaminated.

    This election is turning into a farce or a comedy show.
