Donald Trump is not over having awkward moments.

The Republican presidential candidate was chastised by a Flint, Michigan pastor about politicizing his visit to her church on Wednesday.

Trump gave his speech after he toured Flint’s water treatment plant.

Addressing a crowd of about 70 African-American voters at the Bethel United Methodist Church, Trump attempted to tie-in Flint’s economic decline to trade deals supported by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton.

In a video posted on YouTube, Rev. Faith Green Timmons is seen walking onstage and interrupting Trump.

“Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not to give a political speech,” she said.

“Oh, oh, oh, OK, that’s good,” Trump replied. “Then I’m going back on Flint.”

Trump didn’t go into detail on specific policies he would pursue to improve Flint’s water quality.

“I can only say in the strongest of terms that we can fix this problem. It’s going to take time, it’s amazing the damage that’s been done,” Trump said. “But we’ll get it fixed and… it will be fixed quickly, if I’m elected, and effectively and Flint will come back. Most importantly, we’ll bring jobs back to Flint.”

Trump’s tour of the Flint’s water facility lasted about 20 minutes, according to The Detroit News.

On Wednesday, Trump also found time to sit down with host Dr. Mehmet Oz to reveal the results of a recent physical.

Trump, 70, revved up the crowd as he handed over two pages of test results after being questioned by the television physician in an interview to air in full Thursday.
