Trump tours Flint water plant
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
STORY: U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump visited Flint, Michigan on Wednesday.
He toured the water treatment plant in Flint as the city continues to deal with its lead-tainted water supply.
His visit drew a strong rebuke from the city’s mayor, saying it was nothing more than a photo-op.
It’s been two and a half years since the city’s water supply was found to be contaminated with lead.
The crisis drew international attention, resulted in the filing of numerous lawsuits and led to calls by some critics for the resignation of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder due to the state’s poor handling of the situation.
Trump has said on the campaign trail that the crisis would’ve never happened if he were president.
