Donald Trump just called Apple CEO Tim Cook ‘Tim Apple’

President Donald Trump got himself trending all over social media on Wednesday when he called Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Tim Apple.

The slip-up took place at an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting at the White House, so it was caught on camera and shared widely.

With almost 100 000 tweets, Tim Apple has got people in stitches.

It wasn’t long before Trump’s thinking was applied to other well known public figures.

There were, however, certain individuals who understood where Trump was probably coming from.

Whether the American President made a mistake or genuinely believes that Tim Cook is Tim Apple remains unclear.
