Time Magazine disputes President Trump's 'Person of the Year' claims

Donald Trump could probably have been Time magazine's "person of the year" for the second year in succession, but for "probably" the US President turned down the publication's interview and photo shoot request.

Either way, Mr Trump's claim that he was "PROBABLY" going to take out the title when it's announced on December 6 has predictably been a source of mirth on social media.

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

The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. "I said probably no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" the president tweeted.

Time named Trump its Person of the Year last year.

'I knew past year that @TIME Magazine lost all credibility when they didn't include me in their Top 100.' Trump tweeted in October 2012.

However, Time responded shortly afterwards, accusing the USA president of misrepresenting them.

Securing the magazine's title - which was launched in 1927 - has always been a preoccupation of Mr Trump's.

Differences on policy and opinion aside, Congress culture imbibes respect for PM and all political opponents", Congress leader Randeep Surjewala said.

Trump frequently brags about appearing on the cover of the iconic magazine.

Beyond TIME's official account, many people have taken to Twitter to refute this latest boast by the president.

Before he won "Person of the Year", Mr Trump hung a fake Time Magazine cover in several of his golf clubs, declaring him "a television smash!"

"They used to call it "Man of the Year" but they can't do that anymore so they call it person - they want to be politically correct, that's OK", he said at a rally in Iowa.

Murray, who has been awarded Sports Personality of the Year a record three times, received more than 130,000 "likes" for his mocking of the president, although not everyone got the joke.

The previous year, Trump had been passed over for the honor, which went to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whom the magazine credited with opening her nation's border to hundreds of thousands of refugees and managing Europe's debt crisis.

Hate to tell you but that PROBABLY means you're NOT Person of the Year.
