Trump Mistakes Apple CEO Tim Cook as ‘Tim Apple’

  • Trump thinks Tim Cook is an Apple

When you think about Apple the company (as opposed to Apple products), you think about Tim Cook. It is certain that the president would have to meet new people and remember a lot of names.

Yesterday Donald Trump managed to bugger up the name of one of the most famous CEOs in the world.

The meeting that Cook attended was for the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board.

When discussing the country's economy and pointing out Apple's efforts to bring jobs and money back to the United States, Trump managed to somehow get Tim Cook's name laughably incorrect.

A video featuring Trump and Cook also went viral on all social media platforms as users posted memes pertaining to the incident.

Heck, the man, throughout the briefing, had nothing but great things to say about Cook. Where his surname was previously, now was an Apple symbol, making his name - at least on Twitter - Tim Apple.

New Zealand Super coaches relieved to have All Blacks back
Read, 33, has played 118 tests in the black jersey and has captained the team in 49 tests. All Blacks coach Steve Hansen praised Read's leadership on and off the field.

Or, as Trump called him, "Tim Apple".

Some other Twitter users were standing up for Donald's words, however, and insisted he was saying, "Team Apple" and people just heard it wrong.

"Tim Apple is how your mom saves the number of that one guy at the Apple Store who helped her set up her email". "I have an important meeting with Jeff Amazon and Kevin Instagram", author Matt Haig added.

However this is not the first time Trump has cocked up the name of a famous executive. He once called Rick Perry "Jim Perry".

Last year, he introduced Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson as "Marilyn Lockheed" at an event.
