I Rejected "Person of the Year." Time: No, You Didn't.

Donald Trump claims Time Magazine told him he was 'probably' going to be Man of the Year, but he rejected it

President Donald Trump claimed Friday afternoon that he turned down an offer to be Time Magazine's person of the year. Trump tweeted in December 2015.

It claims it doesn't comment on its choice until publication, which is on the 6th of December.

For example, when Angela Merkel was named Person of the Year in 2015, he had this to say. He tweeted: "I said probably is no good and took a pass".

Trump hasn't taken down his tweet, or tweeted back to TIME - yet.

"But I'm sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage". Shortly after his election last year, Mr Trump complained to a crowd of supporters that the magazine should return to calling it's award "Man of the Year".

Other prominent personalities and groups that has been recognised with such award include Barrack Obama, former USA president (2012), Pope Francis (2013), Ebola fighters (2014), and Angela Merkel (2015).
