A tweet has appeared on an official McDonald’s Twitter account calling Donald Trump a “disgusting excuse” for a president and saying it wants Barack Obama back.
The message lasted less than half an hour on the McDonald’s Corporate Twitter Account before being taken down, suggesting it wasn’t sanctioned by the company.
In full, it read: “@realdonaldtrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a president and we would love to have Barack Obama back, also you have tiny hands.”
The reaction was swift from Twitter users. Some laughed…
@McDonaldsCorp do you serve these delicious hot takes all day?

Others speculated about what would happen to the rogue tweeter, if there was one.

One wonderful consequence is the resurfacing of this fabulous ad Trump did for McDonald’s a fair few years ago.
Terri Hickey, McDonald’s US spokesperson said: “Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now further investigating this.”
