President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday that Time called to tell him that he was “probably” going to be named the magazine’s person of the year, but that he turned the offer down, an account Time later disputed.

“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 no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!” the president tweeted.

“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,” Time said in a tweet.

Trump was named Time’s 2016 Person of the Year, one month after his upset win against Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.

In past years, Trump has publicly derided out the magazine for not being selected. “Thank you @oreillyfactor for your wonderful editorial as to why I should have been @TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year. You should run Time!” Trump tweeted in December 2015.

Similarly in December 2012, Trump tweeted,” I knew last year that @TIME Magazine lost all credibility when they didn’t include me in their Top 100… ”

The Washington Post reported in June that at least four Trump Organization golf properties had on display a fake Time Magazine with Trump on the cover and featuring flattering headlines about his reality TV show, “The Apprentice.”
