He tweets: "I said probably is no good and took a pass".

Trump was named Person of the Year in 2016, after his shock win in the USA presidential election.

President Donald Trump claimed Friday that Time Magazine contacted him to express the likely possibility that it would designate him as its "Person of the Year".

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

A spokesperson for Time did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday evening. Time's managing editor Nancy Gibbs said at the time that Clinton was the No. 2 finalist.

Time magazine's official Twitter account also sent out a tweet around the same time as Trump's, asking readers to chime in on who they think should receive the annual title.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far.

. Only a handful of employees know who the victor is before the decision is announced. He has falsely claimed to hold the record of cover appearances, and was revealed earlier this year to have displayed fake issues of Time at several of his private golf clubs.

Trump won the title in 2016 for what the magazine said was his knack for "reminding America that demagoguery feeds on despair", "truth is only as powerful as the trust in those who speak it", and for "empowering a hidden electorate by mainstreaming its furies and live-streaming its fears, and for framing tomorrow's political culture by demolishing yesterdays'".

Recent winners prior to Trump in 2016 include German Chancellor Angela Merkel in 2015, healthcare workers fighting Ebola in 2014, Pope Francis in 2013 and President Barack Obama in 2012.

The first "Man of the Year" was named in 1928, and the first "Woman of the Year" followed in 1937.
