Donald Trump says calling Tim Cook, “Tim Apple” was all about time-saving

You may have heard that President Donald Trump called Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple – well now the President has said that it was entirely intentional.


The President of the United States, Donald Trump, has taken time out of his busy schedule to assure his electorate that him calling Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple Inc, “Tim Apple” was entirely intentional, explaining that it was all about time-saving.

Not him losing his marbles.

Taking to Twitter (of course) he wrote, “At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words”.

As you see, doing this saved literally two words. “Cook” and “From” – a time saving of around a second. But say, if you were say it over and over – like a demented cuckoo on speed, you can see how these seconds would all add up.


He then hit out at news organisation that reported that he had referred to Cook as Apple – calling them “Fake News” saying “The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!”

There you go people. If you want to save time and prove yourself as a time-saving lord, just refer to people as Firstname followed by the company they work for.
