Now Sean Hannity is getting in the ring and is challenging Time Magazine to answer whether or not they approached Trump at all.

In 2015, he predicted TIME would never name him person of the year.

Magazine on Friday said that it did not call the American president, Donald Trump, proposing to probably make him their Person of the Year.

Also writing via its Twitter handle, Time said: "The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year".

Trump claimed to have turned down the offer.

But added that they had also requested for an interview and photo shoot. "TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6", TIME tweeted. The magazine insists that it "does not comment" on the choice "until publication, which is December 6".

Beyond TIME's official account, many people have taken to Twitter to refute this latest boast by the president.

Last summer, TIME asked for the fake magazines to be removed after reports surfaced that at least five of Trump's golf clubs featured the fakes bearing his photo.

Trump was named Time's 2016 Person of the Year, one month after his upset win against Hillary Clinton in the presidential election. "But I'm sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage".

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

"They used to call it "Man of the Year" but they can't do that anymore so they call it person - they want to be politically correct, that's OK", he said at a rally in Iowa.

But the real estate tycoon came up trumps past year, when the magazine gave him the title, describing him as the "President of the Divided States of America".
