Apple CEO Tim Cook found a way to make fun of and get back at Donald Trump, by making a small but clever change to his Twitter profile today. The tech executive changed his name on Twitter to “Tim” with an “apple” emoji, from how it was originally as simply “Tim Cook.” The Apple CEO did this because Trump called him “Tim Apple” during a meeting at the White House yesterday.

Trump screwed up Tim Cook’s name during a meeting with the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board in the State Dining Room at the White House. “I used to say, ‘Tim, you gotta start doing it here,’ and you really have. I mean, you’ve really put a big investment in our country. We really appreciate it very much, Tim Apple,” Trump said. You can see it all in the footage below.

Donald Trump can’t even remember the name of the CEO he was scheduled to meet, who also happens to be CEO of the most valuable company the world has ever seen. Trump claims to be such a business genius, but he’s not even aware of who is running the most valuable business on the planet.
