    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a primary night news conference, Tuesday, May 3, 2016, in New York. His tweet and Facebook post to mark Cinco de Mayo quickly went viral on Thursday.

    Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a huge taco bowl in New York City.

    Trump posted a photo of himself, posing with the dish in his office at Trump Tower, to Twitter and Facebook Thursday afternoon. 

    "Happy Cinco de Mayo!" the candidate wrote in the caption. "The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill."

    "I love Hispanics!" he added.

    The photo had garnered more than 44,000 shares and was liked more than 134,000 times in under an hour after being posted to Facebook. Thousands commented on the photo as well.

    "I'm a trump supporter and I thought this was funny," said Facebook commenter Alex Earney.

    It also went viral on Twitter, where some users lambasted the photo.

    "C'mon man, even your Mexican food has a wall," tweeted Danny O'Dwyer, referring to Trump's promise to build a wall between Mexico and the United States.

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was also quick to criticize Trump on social media, posting a video of him telling "NBC Nightly News" host Lester Holt this week that he still plans to deport all undocumented immigrants from the country if he's elected president.
