  • Former world number one Andy Murray

Former adviser to former President Obama and current co-host of "Pod Save America" Dan Pfeiffer tweeted that Trump's claim is "sad" and the president is "so needy for approval".

"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, ' the President tweeted".

"They just wanted a photo shoot".

"Amazing. Not a speck of truth here-Trump tweets he "took a pass" at being named TIME's person of the year", Murray tweeted, along with an article about the incident.

However, Time responded shortly afterwards, accusing the United States president of misrepresenting them. The magazine said it doesn't comment on its choice until publication, the Associated Press reported. "You should run Time!".

At the time he predicted Time "would never pick me as person of the year".

The British tennis star brutally trolled American President Donald Trump over the Time magazine controversy.

Trump frequently brags about appearing on the cover of the iconic magazine.

The president hasn't been interviewed by a major news organization other than Fox News since May.

Actor David Schneider joined in: "Hollywood just called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named the next James Bond but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot".

"Thank you @oreillyfactor for your wonderful editorial as to why I should have been @TIME Magazine's Person of the Year".

Mr Trump's professed indifference to the award contrasts a little with previous years, where he has paid close attention to the judges' decision.

Time magazine is now conducting an online poll wherein its readers can vote on the Person of the Year till December 3.
