Time Magazine clarifies Person of the Year for Trump this year

Donald Trump

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".

Trump tweeted Friday that Time told him he would "probably" be named Person of the Year for 2017.

But added that they had also requested for an interview and photo shoot.

Bbc just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named sports personality of the year but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot.

"It means a lot", Trump said in an NBC News interview at the time, "especially me growing up reading Time magazine".

TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6. "But I'm sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage".

TIME itself commented on the president's tweet to say that he was incorrect about their editorial process.

The monthly magazine gave Trump that distinction previous year and paired it with a scathing feature piece that appeared to lean more toward "worse" than "better".

Via Twitter, Trump claimed the magazine had told him he would "probably" be selected as Person of the Year.

The president hasn't been interviewed by a major news organization other than Fox News since May.

The President was named TIME's "person of the year" in 2016, following his victory over Hillary Clinton. English comedian David Schneider tweeted.

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

Mr Trump's professed indifference to the award contrasts a little with previous years, where he has paid close attention to the judges' decision. And it's a very important magazine, and I've been lucky enough to be on the cover many times this year - and last year.
