The Internet responded quickly, with some pointing out his past criticism of people who consume Diet Coke, notes the Huffington Post.

Some also embarked on a Photoshop battle where people doctored the photo he shared in different ways; one features Mr. Burns from 'The Simpsons' in Trump's seat while another shows President Obama assessing his meal from the side.
