Donald Trump secured the delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination on Thursday, and he celebrated with two of his favorite things: McDonald’s and Diet Coke.

It was a modest victory meal but the billionaire businessman enjoyed it in classic Trump style – on his private jet.

After The Associated Press reported that Trump had nabbed the magic number of delegates – 1,237 – the freshly minted candidate took to his Instagram to share a celebratory snapshot with his supporters.

The picture shows Trump, 69, eating a burger and fries from McDonald’s with a Diet Coke while sitting at a table on his private plane. “Celebrating 1237! #Trump2016,” he captioned the photo.

Trump had become the presumptive nominee earlier this month when rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out of the race. He now has the delegates he needed to avoid a contested convention in July in Cleveland, where Republicans are expected to officially finalize their pick.

After claiming the GOP delegate majority, Trump turned his attention to Hillary Clinton, who is still battling rival Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination amid renewed criticism about her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

“Here I am watching Hillary fight, and she can’t close the deal,” Trump said at a rally in North Dakota. “We’ve had tremendous support from almost everybody.”
