Donald Trump visits Flint to address water crisis; is interrupted and heckled during speech


FLINT, Mich (WLNS) – He’s been to Detroit and Dimondale and now Donald Trump is back in our state to find out how Flint is handling it’s water crisis.

Michigan has been a hot-bed of political action in the past few months.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine was in Ann Arbor yesterday and today Donald Trump touched down in Flint.

He toured a water treatment plant that’s been shut down since last year.

Trump spoke to the plant’s supervisor and later talked about her enthusiasm for the job.

Trump said that if he’s elected he would move “quickly” to help fix the water crisis.

“It used to be cars were made in Flint and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico,” said Trump. “Now the cars are made in Mexico and you can’t drink the water in Flint. That’s not good, that’s not good, it’s terrible.”

Trump spoke at a church after his tour of the plant but things did not go so well for him when he started to talk politics.

He was interrupted by a church pastor who reminded him that he was invited to speak about Flint’s water issues and not deliver a political stump speech.

Trump shifted his speech to address the water crisis.
