Donald Trump has claimed Time Magazine called him to say he was "probably" going to be their "Man of the Year", but that he turned it down because "probably" wasn't good enough.

"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,' the President tweeted. "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!"

Time, however, disputed this statement.

"The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year," a tweet from the magazine's account said. "TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6."

The magazine named Mr Trump "Person of the Year" in 2016, following his shocking victory over Hillary Clinton. Timedefended the controversial decision by saying the award is given to "the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year".

In an editorial explaining the decision, then-Editor in Chief Nancy Gibbs framed it as such: "For reminding America that demagoguery feeds on despair and that truth is only as powerful as the trust in those who speak it, for empowering a hidden electorate by mainstreaming its furies and live-streaming its fears, and for framing tomorrow’s political culture by demolishing yesterday’s, Donald Trump is TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year."
