Donald Trump on Thursday criticized the pastor who interrupted him during a church speech a day before to stop him from attacking Hillary Clinton.

“Something was up, because I noticed she was so nervous when she introduced me. She called NBC, ABC … when she got up to introduce me, she was so nervous, she was shaking,” Trump told Fox News.

“And I said, ‘Wow, this is sort of strange.’ And then, she came up. So she had that in mind, there’s no question about it.”

Trump was giving brief remarks at Bethel United Methodist Church in Flint, Mich., on Wednesday as part of his tour of the city, which has been plagued by contaminated drinking water.

When he began criticizing Clinton, pastor Faith Green-Timmons came onstage and interrupted, asking him not to launch political attacks in a church.

“Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us … not to give a political speech,” Green-Timmons said as she walked up to Trump.

The GOP presidential nominee said the incident didn’t “bother” him, adding that “everyone plays their games.”
