Time magazine is disputing US President Donald Trump‘s account of how he rejected the magazine’s request for an interview and photo shoot ahead of its “Person of the Year” issue. Last year, to no one’s surprise, Trump was named Time’s “Person of the Year” after his shocker of an election victory. President Donald Trump isn’t interested in being named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.” But he often brags about his cover looks in the iconic magazine. The President has incorrectly claimed to hold the record of cover appearances. The iconic magazine ‘Time’ will unveil its Person of the Year on December 6.
In a Friday evening tweet, Trump said,
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!

The iconic magazine ‘Time’ responded to the President’s Tweet on its own Twitter account as
The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.

Trump loves his appearance in the magazine so much that for years he had a fake Time cover featuring himself hanging in his resorts and offices.
