On Wednesday, March 6, President Trump had a meeting with the American Workforce Advisory Board. Several high profile American workers were a part of the meeting, including Apple’s CEO Tim Cook.

While the focus was supposed to be on, as the title of the meeting indicated, the “American Workforce,” thousands of Americans around the nation were focused on one funny moment that President Trump and Tim Cook shared.

During the meeting, President Trump began thanking Cook for his contributions and investment into the United States. Rather than calling him Tim Cook, however, President Trump accidentally called the CEO Tim Apple.

He said, “We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple.”

After, viewers were attempting to figure out if President Trump said it on purpose. Some thought that he said it as a joke, as he often gives people nicknames. Others thought that he meant “Tim” and “Apple,” referring to both the CEO and the company. Most people, however, thought that President Trump just made a mistake.

Regardless of the reason, the Internet thought it was hilarious. Now, Tim Cook has made the moment even better. On Thursday, the Apple CEO changed his Twitter name to "Tim [Apple Emoji]." The Internet absolutely loved it! 

Below are some of the memes created from the incident:

Fans pointed out that President Trump wasn't the only one that Tim Cook "trolled" through his Twitter name change. He also made Android users part of the joke! Alex Whitcomb noted that Android users are unable to see the Apple emoji that Cook posted next to his name. Instead, it shows up for them as a square box.
