President Trump refers to Tim Cook as 'Tim Apple'
But maybe that's the impression President Donald Trump had Wednesday. During an introduction at a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board lauding Cook for the work he's done in American commerce, the president referred to Cook as "Tim Apple" while the two were sitting side by side.
"We're going to be opening up the labor forces because we have to. We have so many companies coming in," Trump said. "People like Tim -- you're expanding all over and doing things that I really wanted you to do right from the beginning. I used to say, 'Tim, you gotta start doing it here,' and you really have, you've really put a big investment in our country. We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple."
