He's lovin' it. Donald Trump celebrated winning enough delegates to officially clinch the Republican presidential nomination in a surprisingly low-key way on Thursday, May 26.

The former Celebrity Apprentice host, 69, was photographed snacking on some food from McDonald's aboard what appears to be his private plane. In the pic, he holds a nearly empty container of fries while looking away from the camera and out the window. A burger and a diet coke sit on the table in front of him.

"Celebrating 1237! #Trump2016," the caption read.

As previously reported, Trump passed the 1,237-delegate mark on Thursday, effectively cementing his status as the Republican nominee. He now has 1,239 delegates, and will likely win more in the June 7 primaries.

His choice of food to celebrate the milestone may be surprising, but it isn't exactly random. Back in 2002, the real estate mogul appeared in a commercial for McDonald's to promote the fast-food chain's now-nonexistent Big N' Tasty.

And earlier this year, he raved to Anderson Cooper about his love of the Golden Arches, calling Big Macs and Quarter Pounders "great stuff."

"I like cleanliness, and I think you're better off going there than maybe some place that you have no idea where the food is coming from," he explained.
