Trump called his friend and Apple CEO Tim Cook 'Tim Apple'

U.S. President Donald Trump mistakenly called Apple CEO Tim Cook "Tim Apple" on Wednesday, March 6, during a meeting of his American Workforce Policy Advisory Board.

Others pointed out that Trump's new name for Cook sounded like the contact you would create on your phone to remind you of how you met an acquaintance. When introducing the Apple CEO during the Advisory meeting yesterday, Trump referred to the Apple CEO as Tim Apple.

A video clip shows Trump addressing Apple's CEO as "Tim Apple".

"Tim Apple is an American icon just like the famous innovators Thomas Lightbulb and Henry Car" was one particularly amusing tweet. Still, in the pantheon of Trump gaffes, the event is less amusing then when the president spelled his wife's name as "Melanie".

WATCH: Trump calls Apple CEO Time Cook — ‘Tim Apple’

Perhaps that's why he's unable to fathom the idea that the man who now heads Apple, Tim Cook, isn't actually called Tim Apple.

US President Donald Trump has once again found himself on the receiving end of Twitter's merciless trolling thanks to a rather unfortunate gaffe. I used to say, 'Tim, you got to start doing it over here.' And you really have. After praising Cook for his company's "big investment in our country", Trump botched his name; Cook, to his credit, did not visibly respond.

While this predictably brought scorn from the media, it's something we can all welcome wholeheartedly.

Tim Cook may not be Michael Jackson, but he is still a prominent figure in the business world, especially when he succeeded Steve Jobs as the CEO of Apple back in 2011. Early in that same meeting, the President noted that Mr. Apple had "become a friend of mine".
