In case you just woke from a coma, Burger King is referring to Trump’s since removed tweet about serving “hamberders” to the Clemson Tigers.
Here’s the new, typo-free tweet:
Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamburgers etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!

While Burger King is just trying to get a little social media play with the post, the world is aware that Trump doesn’t touch Burger King, as McDonalds is his go-to fast food joint – with an occasional taco bowl from Taco Bell on Cinco de Mayo.
The King may be a tad jealous of Trump’s loyalty to Mc D’s.
While Burger King started as all American Insta-Burger King in Jacksonville, Florida. The chain has switched hands numerous times and has been owned by foreign entities since 2010.
Burger King is owned by Canadian parent company, Restaurant Brands International. The majority shareholder in RBI is Brazilian firm 3G Capital.
