WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — Apple CEO Tim Cook has made President Donald Trump's nickname (of sorts) for him official. He's changed his Twitter name to Tim next to an apple emoji:

Tim Cook Apple

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump mistakenly referred to Apple CEO Tim Cook as "Tim Apple," during a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board on Wednesday.

Trump met with business leaders and said a lot of companies that had moved their work overseas are bringing their operations back to the U.S.

He said his administration aims to let more people into the U.S. through legal, merit-based immigration to add to the workforce.

"I used to say, 'Tim, you got to start doing it over here,' and you really have, I mean, you've really put a big investment in a country," the president said. "We appreciate it very much, Tim Apple, but we're opening it up. We have to bring people in. We want them to be people based on merit and we want them to come in legally."
