"We rebuilt downtown Manhattan and everybody in the world watched and everybody in the world loved New Yorkers, and I have to tell you that was a very insulting statement," Trump said at the Fox News debate.
Many are expressing anger over the Daily News' front page on Twitter, calling it "embarrassing" and "disgusting."
@NYDailyNews Way to perfectly illustrate Cruz's point. This is embarrassing.
