  • TIME says Trump is 'incorrect' on 'Person of the Year' award process

Magazine on Friday said that it did not call the American president, Donald Trump, proposing to probably make him their Person of the Year.

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard mocked President Donald Trump after he tweeted about rejecting the honor of being TIME Magazine's "Person of the Year".

'Sports Illustrated called and said I was probably going to be Sportsman of the Year, but it was going to take a long photo shoot and interview. He says he told the magazine that "probably" isn't good enough, and he would pass on the opportunity.

The US President was named TIME's Person of the Year in 2016, after his historic - and unexpected - election to the highest office in his land. The magazine says it doesn't comment on its choice until publication.

High-profile Twitter users parodied Trump's tweet to discuss all the hypothetical awards they had also turned down. In June, The Washington Post reported that several of Trump's clubs display what appears to be a cover from a 2009 issue of Time with Trump himself on the front.




"The #MuellerInvestigation just called and said you were PROBABLY going to be named Soap Monitor on your wing and would have to agree to an interview and a perp picture with your combover shaved off", Isaacs tweeted. He wrote, "It's too bad though because Time Magazine is really hot!"

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

"Donald Trump: The "Apprentice" is a television smash!" the headline on the fake cover read. The magazine counters that Trump has it all wrong. In 2015, the publication chose Angela Merkel and in 2014 it was Ebola fighters.

"I told you @TIME Magazine would never pick me as person of the year despite being the big favourite", he tweeted.

"Thank you to Time Magazine and Financial Times for naming me "Person of the Year" - a great honour!" he tweeted.
