The mayor of San Juan is using fashion to make a statement to the world, and to President Donald Trump. In a recent video interview, Carmen Yulín Cruz wore a t-shirt in a fabulous act of owning the insult Trump had thrown at her previously. Donal Trump claimed the Democratic party told Ms Yulín Cruz to be “nasty” to him. Cruz reacted to this comment by wearing a t-shirt with the beautifully blunt word 'nasty' written across it.
Hitting back at the president, she told Univision while wearing the statement T-shirt: “What is really nasty is that anyone would turn their back on the Puerto Rican people.
Mayor Cruz has repeatedly attacked the federal response to Hurricane Maria's devastation of the US island territory, claiming it has been too slow, after millions were left without power and basic necessities.
