We never proposed to make Donald Trump Person of the Year

President Donald Trump

Celebrities ranging from movie stars to professional athletes mocked President Trump for claiming Friday that he turned down being named Time's "Person of the Year". "The mag frequently includes photo spreads and interviews with several "finalist" type people, not just the person".

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

Former editor Richard Stengel also hit out at Trump and said,"Hate to tell you but that PROBABLY means you're NOT Person of the Year". "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!", Mr. Trump wrote.

Time named Trump its Person of the Year last year.

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

The Washington Post reported in June that at least four Trump Organization golf properties had on display a fake Time Magazine with Trump on the cover and featuring flattering headlines about his reality TV show, "The Apprentice".

"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. The magazine sent out a tweet of its own less than three hours later to say Trump "is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year".

Trump said the magazine informed him he was "probably" going to be granted the title for the second year in a row.

Since 1927, Time Magazine has featured one person who has "for better or for worse" done "the most to influence the events of the year".

"They used to call it "Man of the Year" but they can't do that anymore so they call it person - they want to be politically correct, that's OK", he said at a rally in Iowa.

In 2015, for example, the magazine selected German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was neither interviewed nor photographed for the issue.
