After insisting that her baseless public criticism of the Trump administration was “not about politics,” the hyper-partisan liberal mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz, decided the best way to show how she felt about the president after he visited the devastated island was to sport a t-shirt that read “NASTY” in big bold letters for all the world to see.
The ugly feud between Cruz and Trump began when the liberal mayor suggested in an interview Saturday that the president was failing to take action to save Puerto Ricans’ lives, treating them as “animals that can be disposed of.”
“We are dying here,” said Cruz. “I cannot fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world cannot figure out the logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles. So, mayday, we are in trouble. So, Mr Trump, I am begging you to take charge and save lives. After all, that is one of the founding principles of the United States of … America. If not, the world will see how we are treated not as second-class citizens but as animals that can be disposed of. Enough is enough.”
Trump responded by noting all the actions the U.S. was taking and specifically slammed her for following the Democrats’ script by being “nasty to Trump.”
