"Sometimes his style of communication gets in the way", Cruz said of Trump's comment.
From the moment President Donald Trump stepped foot in Puerto Rico on Tuesday, he made dismissive and insulting comments about the island and the natural disaster that struck it on September 20.
Following his visit to Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria, President Trump said in an interview with Fox News' Geraldo Rivera that the island owes "a lot of money" to Wall Street and the USA must "wipe out" its debt. We're talking about life or death! So, Mr. Trump, I am begging you to take charge and save lives.
"Usually when you're throwing something, it's like party favors or something good".
The Calvary Chapel crowd was reportedly invited by Puerto Rican politicans, pushing regular churchgoers to the side for what was originally scheduled to be a community service event.

Cruz - Trump's most prominent critic in Puerto Rico - attended his first event in an airport hangar, shaking his hand as he went around a table greeting officials. "They REALLY understood the disconnect between how things are supposed to happen and how they really happen", she tweeted.
According to the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll, just 32% of respondents approve of how Trump is handling relief efforts in Puerto Rico, while 49% disapprove. "We are going to get the electric going again".
FEMA spokesman William Booher noted that the statistics remain on a website maintained by Puerto Rican Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, which now indicates 54 percent of Puerto Ricans have access to drinking water and 9.2 percent have electricity.
"I saw a real connection between the reality and the White House staff", she said. When she told him face-to-face that she's working to save lives and not anxious about politics, he completely ignored her.

Track its path here — Hurricane Nate
Nate will stay far away from SWFL but we will see some added moisture and choppy water conditions from the storm. In the U.S., storm surge, dangerous waves and flooding are the biggest risks for the low-lying oceanfront areas.
