Per the Washington Post:
Donald Trump was cut off, chastised and then heckled after he attacked rival Hillary Clinton during what was supposed to be a speech on helping where the government had failed the people of Flint, Michigan.
“Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we’ve done in Flint, not give a political speech,” said the Rev. Faith Green Timmons, the pastor of the Bethel United Methodist Church.
The Republican nominee quickly stopped, then said “Ok, that’s good, Then I’m going to go back to Flint” and its water crisis that had sickened its citizens.
But the interruption seemed to embolden those in the sparse crowd. One woman shouted that Trump had used discriminatory housing practices in his buildings, causing the celebrity businessman to respond, “Never, you’re wrong. Never would.”
Trump abruptly ended his speech, which had lasted six minutes. More heckling followed him out…
Trump visited the traditionally African American church in the impoverished city to pay tribute to the city’s resiliency. But then, he attacked Clinton, saying “everything she touched didn’t work out.” Timmons then stepped up and interrupted him…
Apart from calling out the liars, what’s on the agenda for the day?
i mean, a church visit can't really go much worse for a candidate than having the pastor interrupt mid-speech and reprimand you

I'm not even sure if Trump saw any Flint water. The city water plant is bone dry and currently not in operation. https://t.co/mFAb037Xe8
