"We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple"

Donald Trump, president of the United States of America has once again driven the internet wild. At an American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting on Wednesday, Trump very confidently thanked Tim Cook, Apple CEO for his contributions to the country [America] and then addressed him as 'Tim Apple'.

A short video of him caught in action fumbling up the name has gone viral.

Ivanka Trump, who was also at the meeting, has reacted to the incident. Trevor Noah's The Daily Show shared a compilation video of all the times Trump mixed up names, adding "Welcome to the club, Tim Apple!". The first daughter tweeted in response with a set of crying-laughing emojis.

This is far from the first time that Trump has fumbled on names, not just in introductions but also with members of his own team.
