Political Punch-up: McDonald's vs Donald Trump

Trump’s list of online enemies keeps on growing, with his latest potential foe being popular, fast-food chain McDonald’s.

On Thursday, the company’s official Twitter account sent, and then quickly deleted, a tweet slamming US President Donald Trump.

However, the fast-food chain denied culpability.

McDonald’s spokeswoman Terri Hickey said: “Based on our investigation, we have determined that our Twitter account was hacked by an external source. We took swift action to secure it, and we apologize this tweet was sent through our corporate McDonald's account."

Twitter declined to comment on the matter, citing privacy and security reasons.

The tweet in question said: “"@realdonaldtrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands."

Although Trump uses his own Twitter account to publicly attack his opponents, the property-empire heir is actually a fast-food friendly President.

He tweeted pictures of himself eating food from McDonald’s on the US presidential campaign trail.

And in 2002, Trump appeared in an ad campaign for McDonald’s now-discontinued Big N’ Tasty burger.

However, speculation on the back of this tweet suggests that some Trump supporters could attempt to launch a boycott of the chain.

Trump supporters previously suggested they would boycott Stabucks after the coffee chain claimed it would counter Trump’s initial travel ban by employing 10,000 refugees.

Trump has recently had twitter spats with Barack Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Alan Sugar, North Korea, Snoop Dogg, the press, Kristen Stewart, Senator Chuck Schumer, liberal activisits, Sweden, Democrats, John McCain, Iran and, of course, Mexico.
