“Phenomenal President,” McGregor wrote, sharing a goat emoji declaring Trump as one of the “GOAT,” or greatest of all time, presidents in the United States.

“Most certainly one of them anyway, as he sits atop the shoulders of many amazing giants that came before him,” McGregor wrote. “No easy feet [sic].”

“Early stages of term also. Incredible,” McGregor continued. “Congrats and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. day America.”

McGregor commented after easily defeating fighter Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in just 40 seconds on Saturday.

HE. IS. BACK.
