A tweet sent from the McDonald's Twitter page called President Donald Trump "a disgusting excuse of a President" with "tiny hands".

In a message sent from the fast food outlet's official account, the return of President Barack Obama was also called for.

Both Donald Trump and Barack Obama's official accounts were tagged in the tweet which was pinned for a short time on the McDonald's account.

The tweet was later deleted from Twitter and an apparent clarification was posted on the account shortly afterwards.

"Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this," the newly pinned tweet reads.
