Watch: Bald eagle snaps at Donald Trump

Time magazine released footage Wednesday of Donald Trump and a bald eagle getting a little tense with each other during a photoshoot for the magazine.

The August shoot with photographer Martin Schoeller was for a Time Magazine cover story. Trump was a nominee for the magazine's annual Person of the Year honors, which he lost to Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

During the shoot, the 27-year-old eagle Trump was posing with, appropriately named Uncle Sam, took at a nip at the billionaire mogul.

Trump currently sits at second place in the Washington Examiner's presidential power rankings.
