Still, for some reason, Donald Trump is trying to convince people that he didn't actually refer to Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, as Tim Apple. He told donors that he actually said "Tim Cook Apple" and that the video didn't pick up on how fast he said "Cook".

Trump then blamed the "fake news" for reporting the story.

Trump was quick to blame it as a "fake news" story, saying it was another "bad Trump story".

Cook took the stumble humorously, later changing his Twitter profile to Tim with the Apple logo. We have so many companies coming in. Lemon said. "You heard the man, he said, 'Tim Apple.' It's amusing, it's ridiculous".

He started off by pointing out Trump's "Tim Apple" gaffe was pretty much over until Trump brought it up again.

Two donors at the event told Axios they didn't understand why Trump would lie about something so ridiculous, particularly when it was captured on video.

Last year, he referred to aerospace and defence giant Lockheed Martin's CEO Marilyn Hewson as "Marilyn Lockheed".

The move also garnered the attention of Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump where she responded with laughing emojis.

Though, if you are an Android user, Cook's name will only appear as "Tim ", as only Apple and IOS users can see the tweak.

Taking liberties with names is nothing new for Trump, the tech news site Apple Insider reported.

Trump's tweet is the second way in which he denied making a slip of the tongue.
