McDonald's calls Donald Trump 'disgusting excuse of a President with tiny hands'
The company has said the account was hacked
McDonald's called Donald Trump a "disgusting excuse for a President" with "tiny hands", in a message on Twitter.
The post, now deleted, also said that the company "would love to have Barack Obama back".
The company claimed that the tweet, sent from its corporate Twitter, was posted because the account was hacked into.
"Twitter notified us that our account was compromised," the account posted after removing the problem post. "We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this."
In full, McDonald's account posted a tweet which directly addressed the President reading: "You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have Barack Obama back, also you have tiny hands".
Before the message was deleted, it received hundreds of retweets and was pinned to the top of the McDonald's page.
The message was sent from the @McDonaldsCorp account, which exists mostly to post about the company itself. With only 151,000 followers, it is much smaller than the main McDonald's account, which exists at @McDonalds and has 3.4 million followers.
The President is thought to be a fan of McDonald's. Last year, he posted that he was celebrating getting to the 1,237 delegates needed to be the Republican candidate for president by eating a meal from the restaurant, which included a tiny bottle of Diet Coke as well as a Big Mac
