Cook has attempted to have a cordial relationship with Trump, and recently took Trump to tour Apple operations in Austin, Texas, but there have been tensions between the two due to an ongoing trade dispute with China and more recently, Apple's refusal to unlock the iPhones used by Florida shooter Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

Ahead of the breakfast with Trump, Cook on Tuesday met with the prime ministers of Finland, Spain, and Croatia, but it's not known what was discussed.

Good. The cancel culture is a cancer. Even people with differences need to learn to respect each other and get along.

From a business perspective I get it, but from a personal perspective, I can't understand how Cook puts up with him.

Cook probably takes a two hour shower after he meets with Trump.

This just shows intelligent people can put their political differences aside and get along. Both Cook and Trump have excellent business sense and this shows by their success.

Trump is a child, so it is easy to manipulate him. I would imagine just for the headline of working with Apple, Trump will bend to whatever Apple needs. From a business perspective, this of course makes a ton of sense, but disappointing to see Apple giving the green light to a racist/fascist like Trump. I suppose it's the way the world works though, Apple is no different than the rest.

I don’t think Trump would be the way the media paints him in reality.

This photo would be a great advertisement for a tailoring company...


Could Tim's smile be any more fake in this picture?


Dentures is likely the reason lol
