'Tim Apple': Donald Trump makes goof on tech CEO Tim Cook's name

This time, while referring to the CEO of Apple Inc, Tim Cook.

Cook sat next to Trump during the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting in the State Dining Room, where officials discussed the importance of technology in education. "I may ask Marillyn Lockheed, the leading women's business executive in this country, according to many", Trump added. It is not a criticism of Trump when we point out that he does have trouble remembering names; after all, the leader of the free world certainly has a lot on his mind. "Tim Square" was probably not the connotation the Apple boss was going for.

Just a day after President Trump referred to Tim Cook as "Tim Apple," the Apple CEO has changed his name on Twitter in an apparent reference to the incident.

"'Tim Apple' is the contact in your phone for the hot guy who asked you out at the Apple store".

"I used to say, "Tim, you got to start doing it over here". That doesn't mean we can't use screenshots, so if you're curious, here's an image. On Windows, it's a blank square and on Android devices, it renders variously as an X-ed out or blank grey rectangle, making the Apple CEO "Tim Square".

"'Mr. Apple" is sitting there like, "I can't correct him because he's the President but I can't let him continue looking like an idiot!"

He doesn't have a history of playing practical jokes or breaking the rules; characteristics starkly different from his predecessor and Apple's co-founder the late Steve Jobs.

"Tim Apple is an American icon just like the famous innovators Thomas Lightbulb and Henry Car" was one particularly amusing tweet. He was saying, "Thank you very much, Tim/Apple".

"Our collective aim is to ensure that all Americans can benefit from the nation's historic economic boom and record low unemployment rates". He once called Marillyn Hewson, Lockheed Martin CEO, Marillyn Lockheed.
