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

April FrancisMar 12, 2019

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. Cook even changed his name on Twitter to reflect his new presidential nickname.

Two donors at the event told Axios that they were baffled as to why Trump was even bringing it up because, as one of them put it, "it doesn't even matter!" Last year, he had called Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson "Marillyn Lockheed".

There were no words between "Tim" and "Apple" and no way for Mr. Trump to deny saying what he said, as there were several cameras in the room as the name flowed from his own lips.
