The Apple CEO Tim Cook sat next to US President Donald Trump during an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting on Wednesday. The president even said the Apple CEO had “become a friend of mine.”
But when the time came to call his friend by his name, Trump massively fumbled the Apple CEO’s name.
In a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the importance of technology in education, Trump referred to the head of the iPhone maker as “Tim Apple.”
President Trump has criticized Apple in the past, even calling for a boycott of the company’s products in 2016 because Apple said it couldn’t unlock a user’s iPhone for the FBI.
It appears the president may have unintentionally just given Tim Cook a new nickname that won’t be going away anytime soon.
