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

One person tweeted: "Donald Trump called Tim Cook (Apple's CEO), "Tim Apple" during a White House visit". Box CEO Aaron Levie has changed his name to "Aaron Box", and our very own Chris Merriman has changed his to "Chris Inquirer".

Earlier in 2016, Trump has been critical of Apple and the ideology since Apple refused to unlock a user's iPhone for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, so much so that Trump even called for a boycott of the company's products.

Here's a look at some of the social media reaction. According to the New York Times, he "does not have the same relationship with Mr. Trump that he had with Mr. Bush", with the president repeatedly calling him "Mike" among White House aides.

Apple CEO Tim Cook says there's a "mismatch" between the skills learned in college and the skills that businesses need, especially when it comes to coding.

When discussing the country's economy and pointing out Apple's efforts to bring jobs and money back to the United States, Trump managed to somehow get Tim Cook's name laughably incorrect. Today Tim Cook changed his official name on Twitter to read "Tim [Apple logo]" in reference to the president's flub.

That's Tim Apple to you, pal.

"A different user wrote: "'Tim Apple' is the contact in your phone for the hot guy who asked you out at the Apple store".

I mean, it's possible, but it's not like Trump hasn't done this before. Not so long ago, Donald Trump found himself in a similar predicament when he introduced Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson as "Marillyn Lockheed", I wish I were fibbing but I'm not.
