Trump admits botching Tim Cook's name after denying it to RNC donors

After denying to Republican donors that he mistakenly referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple," President Trump has admitted to the slip in a Monday tweet.

"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. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!"
