This Is How Trump Celebrated Clinching the Republican Nomination

"Celebrating 1237!"

Donald Trump celebrated clinching the Republican nomination for president Thursday by eating a meal from McDonald's.

The New York businessman posted a photo on Instagram showing him devouring fries and what appeared to be a Big Mac.

"Celebrating 1237!" Trump wrote in the caption, in reference to the number of delegates needed to win the GOP nomination outright.

Trump paired the meal with a Diet Coke, a curious choice for the billionaire considering his previous statements about those who consume the beverage.

Earlier in the day, Trump reached the number of delegates needed to win the Republican nomination on the first ballot at the Cleveland convention.
