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. When introducing the Apple CEO during the Advisory meeting yesterday, Trump referred to the Apple CEO as Tim Apple. "I may ask Marillyn Lockheed, the leading women's business executive in this country, according to many", Trump added.

Post the incident, some people declared Trump "unfit to be President", suggesting him to undertake "immediate medical attention".

Technically, it's "Tim ", but only those using an iOS or macOS device will be able to see the non-Unicode Apple symbol; those using other operating systems will likely see, er, something else.

"We're going to be opening up the labor forces, because we have to", Donald said.

The unflappable Apple CEO did not appear to respond to the naming snafu that has since gone mega-viral. That doesn't mean we can't use screenshots, so if you're curious, here's an image.

Another Twitter user commented: "I have watched this thousands of times in a row now and I'm still laughing".

Apple founder Steve Jobs famously started the company in his garage in 1976 after dropping out of Reed College.

As Trump would tell you he is "very, very, smart" and knows exactly what he is saying.

Donald Trump trended on internet on Thursday, once again for wrong reasons. "In one way, I love it", Trump said of low unemployment. Nearly exactly a year ago, Trump called Marillyn Hewson, the CEO of aerospace firm Lockheed Martin, "Marillyn Lockheed".
