President Trump warned Time magazine in advance about his unwillingness to become a “Man of the Year.”
He tweeted today, after Thanksgiving Day:
“Time Magazine called to say that “I was PROBABLY going to be named” Man (Person) of the Year, “like the last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I have said it is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”
Trump became a “Man of the Year” according to Time in December 2016. On the cover of the magazine, he was presented as “President of the United States of America.”
“The Baron of Real Estate and the owner of the casino, which turned into a star of a TV show and a provocateur,” – wrote the magazine. Time noted the multifaceted figure of Trump.
For those who believe that Trump’s victory is for the better, he seems “a long-awaited reproach to the arrogant ruling class.” Trump supporters expect significant, historic changes from him.
For those who think that everything is for the worse, they see Trump’s policy as “poisoned with racism, sexism, and nativism.” Trump haters are afraid of what he can do, and what his fans can do for him, Time noted.
