Tim Cook acknowledged Trump’s flub and changed his last name to an Apple logo on Twitter
Apple CEO Tim Cook is in on the “Tim Apple” joke, Trend reports citing CNBC.

The Trump quip, made at a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board at the White House on Wednesday, quickly went viral. And on Thursday, the president’s daughter, Ivanka, who was seated alongside her father and Cook at the meeting, joked about the incident on Twitter.
Now Cook himself is making light of what happened.
Here’s his new Twitter name:
