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

The president even said the Apple CEO had "become a friend of mine".

US President Donald Trump Wednesday goofed up at a conference in the White House when he referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple".

"I mean, you've put a really big investment in our country".

"It should be a requirement in the U.S. for every kid to have coding before they graduate from K12 and become somewhat proficient at it", Cook said, pointing out that Apple was founded by a college dropout and that the company needs skilled coders much more than it needs college degrees.

Please appreciate both Ivanka Trump and Cook's complete lack of reactions when Trump slips up.

It didn't take long for the reaction tweets to roll in. Trump was addressing the inaugural meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board where leaders of industries were present.

It's not the first time Trump has made it seem like a CEO immediately assumes their company name. Cook is joined on the board by IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, along with other business executives, including the CEOs of Walmart, Lockheed Martin and Home Depot.
