Donald Trump Labels “Tim Apple” gaffe as “Fake News”

Published

Donald Trump is prone to humiliating and clumsily blunders, and a fresh one involving Apple CEO Tim Cook has gone viral. President Trump appears committed to denying fact-finding facts.

Speaking to the technology company boss at a round table meeting of business executives event, Trump praised the U.S. investment by Apple.

“I mean you’ve really put a big investment in our country. We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.”

Trump tweeted on Monday morning that when he called Apple CEO Tim Cook “Tim Apple” at last week’s White House roundtable, he was actually saying “Tim / Apple” as a way to “save words,” which is something that Trump is known to do.

Evidently, even Tim Cook took the flub jokingly by changing his name on Twitter to “Tim ” One donor told Axios that the decision of Trump to lie about this particular error was so weird because “It doesn’t matter!”

But Trump seems to be trying to have the last word instead of letting the matter rest.

He came up with a different explanation at a private meeting of Republican donors in Florida on Friday, Axios news site reported.

The report stated he had told confused Republicans he’d actually said “Tim Cook Apple,” but “Cook” was said very quietly, then ignored by the media.
