Back in the United States, the fast-food giant McDonald’s briefly appeared to take on President Donald Trump Thursday, when the corporate account tweeted out, “@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 swiftly deleted within 20 minutes, and McDonald’s later apologized, claiming its account had been hacked. McDonald’s head of global communications, Robert Gibbs, previously worked as President Obama’s press secretary.
