President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday to blast San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, calling her ‘nasty’ and also said the American citizens in Puerto Rico expect handouts.

Trump tweeted: ‘The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.’

‘Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help.’

Cruz responded to Trump’s comments this morning telling Joy Reid on MSNBC: ‘Actually, I was asking for help. I wasn’t saying anything nasty about the president, but don’t take my word for it.

‘General Buchanan, a three-star general, has said as one of the first comments that he has made about the Puerto Rico situation, that he doesn’t have enough troops and he doesn’t have enough equipment of what he needs to get the situation under control.’

In his first tweet after Hurricane Maria devastated the US territory, Trump brought up how the country still owed money to Wall Street.
