Trump Reminds Everyone He Called Tim Cook "Tim Apple"

Trump Reminds Everyone He Called Tim Cook

The chief executive of Apple has renamed himself on social media in a subtle joke at President Trump's expense.

The report said that he had told puzzled Republicans that he'd really said "Tim Cook Apple", but that "Cook" was said very quietly, then ignored by the media.

Trump was subsequently ridiculed in the media and online as result of the gaffe - but now, almost one week later - he's offered an explanation on Twitter as to what was going on in that big orange head of his.

The president was meeting with the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board last Wednesday when he bungled Cook's name.

President Donald Trump on Monday angrily doubled down on lying about falsely referring to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple".

Apple chief Tim Cook has fun on Twitter after Trump's verbal gaffe

According to official transcript of the roundtable discussion, posted on the White House website, Trump did in fact make the error.

"Hey look, it's Tim Apple, son of Apple founder Steve Apple", said one user. He changed his Twitter name to "Tim Apple" using the apple emoji after his first name.

"I used to say, 'Tim, you got to start doing it over here.' And you really have".

There were no words between "Tim" and "Apple" and no way for Mr. Trump to deny saying what he said, as there were several cameras in the room as the name flowed from his own lips. "It doesn't even matter!"
