    Get a grip. It was a phone call and proves nothing.

    Saddam Hussein also phoned to congratulate him from the 7th plane of Hell.

    Saddam: "Congrats Donald! And thanks for standing up for me! I wish I could speak with you longer, but me and Mephistopheles have a date tonight, gotta go!"

    Did you hear everything what the phone call said? I didn't so you (and I) can't know that. I can only go off what both parties, Trump and Cook have said about it.

    Having constant dialogue with the business leaders of the nation is never a bad thing. It's good to keep them in the loop. For transparency at least, and when any issue arises they will by more likely to trust a government who has always kept business informed about everything.

    You need to keep a more open mind.

    I don't see anything analogous between Saddam Hussein and Tim Cook, but that's just me. Can't you follow @Scepticalscribe advice and just be nice?

    Likely a more self-serving call on Cook's part now that Trump is in power. I really don't think either gives a cra p about the other outside what impact policies might have on things.

    Yep, but Tim would have been neglecting his positions as CEO if he didn't make the call.

    Trump slides about everything Trump also said that he was friend with Putin then next weeks he said he never met or spoke to him.

    It proves that Trump won. I'll bet Cook would rather have chewed an arm off than make that call. But better to smooch Trump's behind and be invited to the Tech summit than to be frozen out like Twitter's Jack Dorsey.
