President Donald Trump took a swipe at Apple chief Tim Cook with a tweet lamenting the removal of the iPhone home button.

"To Tim: The Button on the iPhone was FAR better than the Swipe!" he tweeted Friday.

Trump switched from an Android mobile to an iPhone in March 2017, the same year Apple dropped the physical home button from its top models. There is no way to tell which of the iPhones Trump upgraded to. It could be the iPhone XR, X or even one of the 11 variants.

This earlier shift seemed to be the target of presidential ire, rather than Apple's latest iPhone 11 release in September.

“I cannot believe that Apple didn’t come out with a larger screen iPhone. Samsung is stealing their business. STEVE JOBS IS SPINNING IN GRAVE,” he tweeted in September 2013.

It also comes after a gaffe in March when he referred to Cook as "Tim Apple". During the first meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, US President Donald Trump, had a slip of tongue. While referring to the CEO of Apple Inc, Tim Cook. President Trump called him “Tim Apple.”

Trump later claimed the naming was deliberate and a "time saving" measure.
