Time Magazine has something to say about Trump’s ‘pass’ claim


Donald Trump was named Time Magazine's Person of the Year last year, after his unprecedented win over Hillary Clinton in the US Presidential election. 

However, it seems that this year, the title will be going to someone else, as Trump claims that he turned down the offer.

Taking to Twitter, the POTUS wrote: 

'Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot.'

'I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!'

However, Time Magazine has clapped back, saying that he was never formally offered the title.

According to a statement made on their Twitter page, the magazine maintains that they do not contact the Person of The Year until the copy has gone to print, which in this case will be December 6. 

Trump was passed over for thr title in 2015, when the iconic magazine chose German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Trump seemed quite bothered by this at the time, saying:

'I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite.'

'They picked [the] person who is ruining Germany.'
