Trump Now Admits He Actually Did Call Tim Cook 'Tim Apple'

Even when there is clear video of him making a mistake, he apparently still won't admit it.

Cook was mistakenly called "Tim Apple" by Trump, and the Internet understandably then went to town creating meme upon meme about the faux pas.

The president was meeting with the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board last Wednesday when he bungled Cook's name.

It's not the first time Trump referred to somebody by the name of their company.

But now Trump is arguing that the whole incident is "fake news", according to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan.

Apple chief Tim Cook has fun on Twitter after Trump's verbal gaffe

"At a recent round table meeting of business executives, [and] long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim [plus] Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time [and] words", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday. I mean, you've really put a big investment into the country.

Without fanfare his surname on his profile was replaced with the Apple corporate logo at some point yesterday, meaning that every tweet he has sent now reads as if it has come from "Tim Apple".

"I just thought, why would you lie about that", a donor told Axios.

But you can't help but think he may have bitten off more than he can chew in denying having called the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, "Tim Apple". "It doesn't even matter!"

Trump has form for calling people by the wrong name, and also did the same thing to Marillyn Hewson - the CEO of Lockheed Martin - by calling her "Marillyn Lockheed".
