Donald Trump constantly attacked San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, calling her “nasty” in many cases.
On Wednesday, during an interview with Jorge Ramos on Univision’s “Al Punto,” Cruz embraced the title Trump gave her by appearing in a T-shirt displaying the word “nasty.”
Ramos asked the mayor as to why she wore that shirt.
Cruz said it was to show that the truly nasty person is Trump for turning his back on the people that need help.
“What is truly nasty is that anyone would turn their back on the Puerto Rican people,” Cruz said during the interview, which was conducted in Spanish.

Trump used the term “nasty” to refer to Cruz multiple times.
“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,” Trump tweeted Saturday.
Trump also used the term in a Fox News interview that aired Tuesday night, saying the mayor was “very nice at the very beginning” but said “she went a little bit on the nasty side and I said I guess she’s running for office, and it turns out I’m right.”
