Black pastor interupts Trump in church

Rev Faith Green Timmons of the Bethel United Methodist Church hosted Trump at her church in Flint but refused not to be respected in her church.

CNN gathered that after inviting Trump to the church, she didn't expect any political gimmicks. When she felt he was heading towards that part as he started talking about his rival Democrat Hilary Clinton, she interupted him and said thus:
"Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we've done in Flint, not give a political speech," 
"OK. That's good. Then I'm going back onto Flint, OK? Flint's pain is a result of so many different failures," Trump said.
Timmons, in a statement provided at the event, noted her church welcomes "all people."
"This public event is open to all and today Donald Trump came to observe. Trump's presence at Bethel United Methodist in no way represents an endorsement of his candidacy," she had said.
On Thursday, Trump told Fox News "something was up" with Timmons, but he wasn't bothered because "everyone plays their games."

Trump was responding to the host's question about whether he was "bothered" by the fact that she purportedly had written on Facebook (according to the Fox hosts, who noted it was later erased) that she hoped to "educate" Trump on what had been going on in Flint. 
"She was so nervous, she was shaking. And I said, 'wow, this was kind of strange.' And then she came up. So she had that in mind, no question about it," Trump said, adding that he suspected that he might face an unfriendly reception at the church.
