McDonald's Tweets At Trump: You're A 'Disgusting Excuse For A President'

McDonald's Tweets At Trump: You're A 'Disgusting Excuse For A President'

McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD) official Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) account Tweeted out to President Trump Thursday morning.

The Tweet read, "@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 was deleted shortly after and it's safe to assume the McDonald's Twitter account was hacked, or perhaps this was the result of an unhappy social media employee.

No Hard Feelings?

The president may not have any hard feelings as he expressed his admiration for Twitter and its platform during an interview with Fox's Tucker Carlson.

Trump explained that Twitter's platform gives him the opportunity to spread his message directly to the people and avoid the media, which he continues to label as dishonest.

"Twitter is a wonderful thing for me because I get the word out," Trump said.

Trump suggested that between all of his social media platforms, he's able to reach around 80 million people directly. In fact, the president suggested he might not have even been elected if he "didn't have an honest way of getting the word out."

Given his history, however, you might want to be on the lookout for a Tweet from Trump regarding his admiration for Burger King...
