"The status of the bonds that you heard the president talk about. are actually inside the bounds of the PROMESA proceedings right now", Mulvaney said. "I was a 'nasty mayor, '" People reported. It should have been a smooth, simple way to counter the charges that he didn't care about Puerto Rico or see Puerto Ricans as people worth saving (or, you know, US citizens).

"What really is nasty is showing your back to the Puerto Rican people", Cruz added.

Cruz said Trump ignored all local mayors of Puerto Rico, who have worked to provide aid and resources to the American people.

President Donald Trump visited Puerto Rico earlier this week amid his administration's widely panned recovery effort after Hurricane Maria battered the island and left millions without power or running water.

She finds hope, however, in the fact that so many individual US cities (New York, L.A., Boston, Miami, and Chicago among them) have been sending aid quickly, as well as individual donors and non-profit NGOs.

After touching down at Muniz Air National Guard Base, beginning his five hour trip, Trump rallied disaster management workers telling them they "can be very proud" of their response.

A number of politicians and celebrities took to social media immediately after to criticize Trump's tweets.

Mr and Mrs Trump met survivors of the disaster in the nearby town Guaynabo, walking down a street and talking to several families whose homes were damaged. Trump said, comparing the outcome favorably to that of Hurricane Katrina, which ravaged New Orleans in 2005.

Shortly after Mr Trump made the controversial comments, authorities increased the death toll to 34.

"Sometimes his style of communication gets in the way", Cruz said of Trump's comment. "Everybody watching can really be very proud of what's taken place in Puerto Rico".

On Tuesday, Cruz called the president the "miscommunicator in chief", saying that he lacked "common courtesy", The Hill reports.

That's where I think she's wrong; this is the new America, which looks a lot like the old America, which looks a lot like the antebellum South America and Jim Crow America.

"Nasty woman" has become somewhat of a battle cry for women who oppose Trump, 71, ever since he used the term to describe Democratic rival Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
