Alert: it’s time to refuel Donald Trump‘s ego again.
While spending time in Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday, Trump tweeted that he turned down a potential offer to be TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year.”
“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,” he tweeted. “I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”
“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,” read a tweet sent by TIME’s account.
Trump has a long-standing obsession with being on the cover of TIME and other well-known publications. According to CNN, TIME asked for the fake TIME mock ups with Donald Trump on the cover be removed after it was discovered that at least five of Trump’s golf clubs featured these
fakes. In a 2015 tweet, he predicted TIME would never name him person of the year.
Welp, another bizarre day in Trump’s America.
