McDonald’s is an iconic American brand that’s hit a bit of a rough spot lately. The tweet they sent out this morning isn’t likely to make things any better for them. As the Hill reports:
McDonald’s’ in a tweet on its corporate account called President Trump “a disgusting excuse of a President” on Thursday morning.
The tweet, which was briefly pinned to the top of the account before being deleted, mocked Trump and called for the return of former President Obama.
“@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands,” the tweet read.
Trump was once in a commercial for the fast food giant, and has posted images eating McDonald’s food on his social media accounts during his campaign.
