Apple CEO Tim Cook listens to US President Donald Trump during an American Technology Council roundtable at the White House in Washington DC

According to Axios, while entertaining RNC donors at Mar-a-Lago this weekend, Mr. Trump was heard saying that the media is once again spreading "fake news" when reporting about his "Tim Apple" remark.

Trump's tweet is the second way in which he denied making a slip of the tongue.

President Donald Trump allegedly told Republican donors that reports of him accidentally calling Apple CEO Tim Cook by the name "Tim Apple" during a White House roundtable were "fake news" - despite the fact that the flub was caught on video. Presumably, even if Trump had said "Cook", his lips would have moved. "We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple", said the President of the United States. Tim Cook, for his part, seemed to find it amusing - he changed his name on Twitter to simply read "Tim ?" During the conference, Cook sat behind a paper name tag that clearly read 'Tim Cook'.

Trump likes to say "Jeff Bozo" when talking about Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and he once called Marilyn Hewson, the CEO of Lockheed Martin, "Marilyn Lockheed". Trump took the opportunity to note that "people like Tim" are "expanding all over and "doing things I really wanted you to right from the beginning".
