Donald Trump named TIME Person of the Year for 2016
Donald Trump has been named TIME magazine’s Person of the Year. Trump sees off former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, the Flint whistleblowers and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Each year, the magazine selects the person who has most influenced the news and the world over the previous 12 months.
Donald Trump went from reality TV star and businessman to president-elect of the United States.
Trump succeeded in beating rival Hillary Clinton, a career politician with decades of experience to take the role of commander-in-chief. Love him or hate him, 2016 was the year of Trump.
Editors of the magazine revealed a shortlist of 11 contenders on Monday, which also included Trump’s election rival Hillary
Clinton, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Russia’s CRISPR scientists, Beyoncé Knowles, and US gymnast Simone Biles.
“To be on the cover of Time as Person of the Year is a tremendous honor,” Trump told Today’s Matt Lauer after the news broke.
