Trump launched his attacks of Cruz early Saturday, accusing her of having poor leadership, and working with Democrats.
“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,” Trump tweeted.
Trump has faced criticism over the past week for the slow movement of aid to the U.S. territory, which was left without power by the hurricane.
Cruz begged for help on Friday, and criticized the federal government’s response to the crisis.
“I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency,” she said.
