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.
I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke.

Diet Coke tweet had a monster response–dammit, I wish the stuff worked.

People are going crazy with my comments on Diet Coke (soda). Let's face it–this stuff just doesn't work. It makes you hungry.

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