The presumptive GOP presidential nominee is stumping ahead of Tuesday's primary.

Donald Trump, seemingly at random, singled out an African-American supporter in the crowd of his rally in Redding, Calif., on Friday, and social media users were quick to react to the moment.

While talking about another African-American supporter who punched a protester in the face at a previous rally, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee noted another black man in the crowd, stopping his speech to point the man out.

"Look at my African-American over here. Look at him," Trump said, pointing. "Are you the greatest? Do you know what I am talking about? OK."

The mention was not done in a malicious way, but some still took offense to the moment and expressed their displeasure via Twitter.

Trump, along with Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, has been stumping in California ahead of the state's Tuesday primary election.
