President Trump on Friday fired off a tweet arguing that “big decisions” have to be made about the cost of rebuilding Puerto Rico after it was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Well, Twitter shot back with the perfect response.

Puerto Rico is still reeling from a lack of basic necessities over a week after Hurricane Maria hit, but that didn;t stop Trump from complaining about the cost of recovery.

San Juan Major Carmen Yulín Cruz, who’s been critical of the administration’s response in Puerto Rico, took issue with Trump’s comment Friday, telling CNN, “If we let them die, nobody is going to pay the debt!”

But Twitter users had a stronger response to Trump’s tone-deaf remarks. Here are some highlights:
