President Donald Trump seemed to have a moment of realization when he said the word "apprenticeships" today during a signing ceremony for skills training.

"Today 23 companies and associations are pledging to expand apprenticeships. That's an interesting word for me to be saying, right? 'The Apprentice,'" Trump said, stopping his prepared remarks to marvel at the connection.

"I never actually put that together until just now," the United States president confessed.

"That was a good experience, I will tell you that," he told the students. "Isn't that strange? Ivanka, I never associated, but here we are. Can't get away from that word. That's a great word. For on-the-job training and vocational education. They will sign the pledge committing to train and retrain more than 3.8 million American students and workers for new jobs and rewarding careers."
