Trump's "Time Person Of The Year" tweet is getting absolutely annihilated by everyone on Twitter
Why did he tweet that?
It's safe to say that we've asked ourselves the above question many times now, but we're very complexed by this one.
After being named Time magazine's Person of the Year in 2016, Donald Trump has now said he was "probably" going to win again this year.
But he had one teeny problem with it... he didn't want to do a photoshoot.
Oh, and the other problem would appear to be that TIME never actually asked him to take part in it in the first place...
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.

Since he tweeted, everyone on Twitter is taking the piss, and we have to say, it's pretty funny:
Bbc just called to say I was PROBABLY going to be named sports personality of the 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!

I just had a vision from God who said I was PROBABLY going to be named as The Messiah. But I would have to agree to a crown of thorns and crucifixion. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

Time called me too to say I was probably going to be named Person of the Year and I was like you mean my mom, don’t you? And they were like yeah sorry and I was like, but you know Trump blocked her, right? And they were like, yeah, that’s why we picked her. https://t.co/rAWbNWMb1C

Time Magazine: “Just to let you know, Mr Trump, we are going to have a different Person of the Year this 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. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway! pic.twitter.com/5uqF6P5nCN

Hate to tell you but that PROBABLY means you’re NOT Person of the Year. They just wanted a photo shoot. But I’m sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage. https://t.co/HkW1XkKxXK

But our personal favourite has got to be this one...
