Trump Weighs In On The Video Of Him Flubbing Apple CEO’s Name

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

But Trump is adamant he didn't do it - even though it was televised and we all saw him do it.

Playing along with the blunder, Cook changed his Twitter name to Tim followed by Apple's logo.

The blunder in question took place last week at the White House for an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board Meeting - the biggest day in anyone's calendar. "The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!"

And on Monday morning, Trump took to Twitter to argue that he called Tim Cook "Tim Apple" on goal as "an easy way to save time & words".

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 praised the CEO for his "big investment" in the USA, but when it came time to thank Cook by name, not even a conspicuously placed name tag could help. I mean, you've really put a big investment into the country.

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.

"We have so many companies coming in. People like Tim-you're expanding all over and doing things that I really wanted you to do right from the beginning", Trump said.

"I used to say, "Tim, you gotta start doing it here", and you really have". Cook even changed his name on Twitter to reflect his new presidential nickname. The president introduced defense company Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson as "Marillyn Lockheed" at a conference previous year.
