Andy Murray savagely trolls Donald Trump over Time magazine controversy

Trump I turned down Time's 'Person of the Year'

President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday that Time called to tell him that he was "probably" going to be named the magazine's person of the year, but that he turned the offer down, an account Time later disputed. "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!", Mr. Trump wrote.

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

However, the publication turned down the President's claims, saying the award victor will only be declared on December 6.

Earlier in 2016, the magazine had named Trump "Person of the Year", following his massive victory over Hillary Clinton.

Time did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

Richard Stengel, a former editor of TIME magazine, tried to explain what might have happened. "The mag frequently includes photo spreads and interviews with several "finalist" type people, not just the person. You should run Time!".

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

Texas Tech defeats Texas 27-23
Carter has nine passing attempts for Texas Tech this season, though two of those went for touchdowns. But the Red Raiders intercepted a pass at the Texas Tech 31 and returned it 55 yards to the UT 14.

The magazine would announce its Person of the Year on December 6.

"They just wanted a photo shoot".

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

Contenders for the 2017 honor include Trump's former chief strategist Steve Bannon, singer Ariana Grande, San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, football player Colin Kaepernick, French President Emmanuel Macron, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, Sen.

In 2012, 2014 and 2015, he even complained about not being picked - on Twitter, of course.

But when he was honoured with the title previous year, there was a change in tone.
