On Wednesday, September 14th in his first visit to Flint since its ‘water crisis’ started, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump came to try and get a better understanding of the city’s problems. Trump did not give any warning to his visit until the day before, and he still came despite Flint’s mayor Karen Weaver insisting that he is not welcome. He stopped at Bishop National Airport in the afternoon and his first stop was the Flint Water Plant, much to the chagrin of Mayor Weaver. Then not long after, he went to Bethel United Methodist Church to speak, where no local media was allowed in. It was at one point during his speech in the church that Trump started heckling his opponent Hillary Clinton, when Rev. Faith Green Timmons interrupted his speech and told him that he wasn’t invited to give a political speech. He then finished his speech and left as the mixed sounds of protesters and supporters chased after him.
