Donald Trump says he meant to call Apple CEO 'Tim Apple'

By changing his profile on Twitter Tim Cook displays a sense of humor

Mr. Cook responded to the amusing side of the situation by changing his Twitter name to "Tim Apple" on March 7, with the Apple an emoji of his company's logo, ABC News reported.

Mr Trump said his apparent slip-up at a White House roundtable with business leaders last Wednesday (March 6) had been on goal.

Tim Cook, the out CEO of Apple, is trolling President Donald Trump on Twitter after an awkward meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory board.

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.

He accused the "fake news" media of spinning the story to make it look like he'd made a silly slip.

But the White House's official transcript of the president's remarks at the meeting covered up the mistake, caught clearly on videotape, by using punctuation. 'People like Tim, you're expanding all over and doing things that I really wanted you to do right from the beginning. According to him, he actually said "Tim Cook Apple".

Cook, who has sided with the Trump administration on certain issues, such as tax reform, but blasted them for others, including the trade war with China, appeared to have a bit of fun at the president's expense last week when he changed his name on Twitter to Tim Apple. "I just thought, why would you lie about that", one said. Last year, he had called Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson "Marillyn Lockheed".
