President Trump took to Twitter Friday afternoon to contend he upheld on presumably being Time‘s Person of a Year since he didn’t wish to determine to an talk and print shoot.

The repository tweeted a few hours after that that wasn’t a case:

Trump was named Time‘s Person of a Year final year, which he called a “tremendous honor” during a time.

The yearly pretension isn’t indispensably a symbol of praise, yet rather an confirmation of influence. “[T]he chairman or persons who many influenced a news and a lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was critical about a year, for improved or for worse,” a former handling editor of a repository wrote. Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin have both been featured in a role.

The repository started fixing a “Man of a Year” during a delayed news week in 1928, it says. The pretension became “Person of a Year” in 1999, yet socialite Wallis Simpson was a “Woman of a Year” in 1937.

In June, The Washington Post noted that feign covers of Time repository featuring Trump hang in during slightest 4 of his golf clubs.

The Person of a Year will be announced Dec. 6.
