"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 wrote on Twitter Saturday.

Ms Cruz wore the shirt during an interview in which she attacked the President for his visit to Puerto Rico after the U.S. territory was devastated by a hurricane. "What really is nasty is showing your back to the Puerto Rican people".

He had accused her of "poor leadership" after she said the Trump administration was "killing us with the inefficiency".

"Every death is a horror", Trump said, "but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina and you look at the tremendous - hundreds and hundreds of people that died - and you look at what happened here with, really, a storm that was just totally one has ever seen anything like this".
