And yes…Donald Trump
During the Thanksgiving holiday, Trump tweeted “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. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!” The magazine tweeted back “The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.”
