McDonald's apologized Thursday, March 16, after it briefly posted on Twitter a blast criticizing President Donald Trump, which the company blamed on a hack from an external source.
He tweeted pictures of himself eating food from McDonald's on the United States presidential campaign trail.
More than an hour after the incident, McDonald's tweeted that its Twitter account had been "compromised".
"I've put together some really impressive deals, but this thing you've pulled off, it's wonderful", Trump tells McDonald's purple mascot, Grimace, referring to McDonald's Dollar Menu. "Looks like I'm buying breakfast at @McDonalds today!"
Trump, a known fast-food aficionado, told Anderson Cooper in February 2016 that he frequently eats at McDonald's.
It is unclear as of yet who posted the tweet.

This isn't the first time a fast food company has been hacked. Was it even really a hack, or did a McDonald's social media manager make a colossal mistake?
The tweet, sent Thursday morning, was pinned to the top of the account before it was pulled from its feed.
Sometimes rage for Donald Trump is so hard to contain that it just spills out all over Twitter. The account only very rarely tweets anything but the most boring day-to-day updates related to the restaurant chain, and has never made a habit out of getting political in the past.
It was especially important that McDonald's explain the situation as quickly as possible, Faber says, and demonstrate that they were taking steps to rectify the mistake.
On his road to the Presidency previous year, during a town hall meeting held in February, Trump confessed a love for fast food, revealing he has meals sent directly to his private jet.
"I'm loving it!" tweeted one user.
