In a tweet late Friday as he spent the Thanksgiving holiday in Florida, Trump sounded dismissive of the honor he received past year and could well receive again.

"Andy Murray was among those piling in to mock the President, with the tennis ace saying he was "'probably' going to be named Sports Personality Of The Year too".

"I was lucky enough to receive the Time Person of the Year", Mr Trump told a crowd in Des Moines, Iowa, on his Thank You victory tour.

"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". They turned out to be fakes.

"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. So this is normal. of course Time would ask him for an interview".

"They just wanted a photo shoot".

Hate to tell you but that PROBABLY means you're NOT Person of the Year.

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

This Tweet is so sad.

"Not a speck of truth here", wrote TIME's Chief Content Officer, Alan Murray.

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".

It claims it doesn't comment on its choice until publication, which is on the 6th of December.

- TIME (@TIME) November 25, 2017Amazing. He has falsely claimed to hold the record for cover appearances, and was revealed earlier this year to have displayed fake issues of Time with himself on the cover at several of his private golf clubs.

There were also suggestions on social media that the cover featuring Mr Trump was designed in a way that made it seem he had "devil horns" with the placement of the letter "M" in the magazine's name directly behind his head.
