WASHINGTON D.C., Oct 28, 2019, 9News. Donald Trump appears to have launched a fresh Twitter feud against Apple chief executive Tim Cook, reported the 9News.

The US president’s latest grievance has to do with Apple’s decision to remove the physical home button on every device following the release of the 2017 iPhone X.

Trump tweeted: “To Tim: The Button on the IPhone was FAR better than the Swipe!”

Trump switched from an Android to iPhone in March 2017, which meant his device would have had a home button because the removal of the feature wasn’t introduced until September the same year.

The tweet suggests Trump may have recently upgraded to an iPhone X or iPhone 11, which require users to slide their fingers across the screen in various gestures to perform different tasks.

Earlier this year Trump and Cook made headlines after the US president referred to the chief executive as “Tim Apple” during an event at the White House.

Cook responded by changing his Twitter to read “Tim” followed by the Apple logo.

Trump also offered design advice to Apple long before he was president, with the 73-year-old slamming the tech company for not offering larger screens as far back as 2013.

Apple has been contacted for comment.
