Donald Trump posted a tweet that's sparked outrage on social media.

The tweet read: "Happy #CincoDeMayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!"

Trump's most likely general election opponent, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, quickly responded with a tweet of her own, highlighting his history of inflammatory comments about illegal immigrants and Hispanics.

Trump's post comes less than 24 hours after becoming the presumptive nominee for the GOP, with a policy plan to force Mexico to pay for a wall at the U.S. border.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," he said last year when he announced his candidacy.

"They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists, and some - I assume - are good people."

Reaction to the photo was rampant as the tweet quickly became viral.

According to Buzzfeed, the salad is not offered at Trump Grill, but is available at the cafe.

The holiday commemorates the Mexican Army's victory against French forces in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla.
