U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz never misses a chance to take a shot at his No. 1 rival Republican rival, Donald Trump.

On Saturday morning, the Republican presidential candidate was stuck in an elevator at a campaign stop in South Carolina.

Upon being released, Cruz quipped, “Who put Donald Trump in charge of the elevators?”

The comments come on the heels of Thursday’s Republican debate in which Cruz and Trump verbally sparred over several issues.

Trump has made Cruz’s birthplace an issue throughout the campaign as he was born in Calgary. The billionaire has suggested that Cruz is ineligible to run because of it.

During the GOP debate, Cruz got into hot water for suggesting Trump had New York values.

“Everyone understands that the values in New York City are socially liberal or pro-abortion or pro-gay marriage–focus around money and the media,” Cruz said.

“Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio have all demanded an apology, and I’m happy to apologize,” he told reporters at an event in South Carolina. “I apologize to the millions of New Yorkers who have been let down by the liberal politicians in that state.”
