Time magazine says Trump 'incorrect' over person of the year claims

Andy Murray- Wimbledon 2016

Time magazine is disputing President Trump's account of how he rejected the magazine's request for an interview and photo sessions ahead of its "Person of the Year" issue.

In 2015, however, he was much less merry: "I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favorite They picked [sic] person who is ruining Germany". According to Trump, however, "probably" wasn't good enough. "TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6", the tweet read. The magazine says it doesn't comment on its choice until publication.

The president was chosen as the "Person of the Year" for 2016. Quoting Trump's tweet Stengel, Stengel asserted,"They just wanted a photo shoot". He wrote, "It's too bad though because Time Magazine is really hot!"

Former adviser to former President Obama and current co-host of "Pod Save America" Dan Pfeiffer tweeted that Trump's claim is "sad" and the president is "so needy for approval".

Actress Patricia Arquette suggested Trump "can always print yourself another fake cover".

Arquette was likely referring to a Washington Post report which found that a framed copy of a fake Time magazine cover featuring Trump's photo hung in five of his luxury golf clubs.

Time Inc.'s chief content officer, Alan Murray, also took a dig at President's tweet and stated that it didn't have "a speck of truth".

Trump claimed on Twitter on Friday that he had taken himself out of consideration after he refused to meet the magazine's "requirements" for an interview and photo shoot without being guaranteed the title.

He later soured on the magazine, however, when it named German Chancellor Angela Merkel as its 2015 Person of the Year.

The time-honoured tradition is carried out by the first lady every year.
