Mr Trump said his apparent slip-up at a White House roundtable with business leaders last Wednesday (March 6) had been on goal.

There were no words between "Tim" and "Apple" and no way for Mr. Trump to deny saying what he said, as there were several cameras in the room as the name flowed from his own lips.

Unvaccinated Boy Spends 57 Days In The Hospital After Reported Tetanus Infection
It was all going well until the sixth day when the boy started experiencing muscle spasms along with the clenching of the jaw. The doctors noted that his hospital bill totaled $811,929, which is about 72 times the average hospital bill for children.

"At a recent round table meeting of business executives, [and] long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim [plus] Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time [and] words", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday.

Earlier this month, while meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook, the president clearly called the man leading one of the world's most valuable companies, "Tim Apple".

What that means for Nelson Agholor remains to be seen, as the Eagles could decide to move on from his $9.5 million salary cap hit. His playing time was reduced in the second half of last season, but he's still an effective interior pass-rusher.

According to official transcript of the roundtable discussion, posted on the White House website, Trump did in fact make the error. "People like Tim-you're expanding all over and doing things that I really wanted you to do right from the beginning", Trump said.

On Thursday, Cook changed his name on his Twitter bio to include an Apple logo, an apparent ode to Trump's slip of the tongue. You've really put a big investment in our country.

Landon Collins' Redskins deal is a nightmare for Giants
But for Collins, jumping in the NFC East from the NewYork Giants to the Redskins wasn't even a tough decision. While Collins has talent, his average-at-best coverage makes this deal carry some extra risk.

Safe to say we've all got egg on our faces now for taking the piss so much last week.
