Time magazine is disputing President Donald Trump's claim that he rejected the magazine's request for an interview and "major photo shoot" ahead of its "Person of the Year" issue. He tweets: "I said probably is no good and took a pass".
In 2013, Trump took the year off, perhaps out of deference to the victor, Pope Francis.

"Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill tweeted that he turned down his own Time magazine honor - and even joked he agreed to leak much-sought-after Star Wars Episode 8 spoilers - but doesn't want it anymore since Trump turned down the cover. "But I'm sure you still have that fake TIME cover somewhere in storage".
