Time magazine has named President-elect Donald J. Trump its Person of the Year for 2016, dubbing him the “President of the Divided States of America.”
Although unhappy with the title, Trump, nevertheless, viewed his selection a “tremendous honor.”
Trump beat out 10 other finalists, including Hillary Clinton; Simone Biles, the Olympic gymnast; Beyoncé; Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook; and the Flint, Michigan whistle-blowers – the residents and civil engineers who sounded the alarm on the lead-poisoned water in the city.
Hillary Clinton came in for second place as the publication’s Person of the Year.
This is the 90th time they’ve named the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year.
Last year’s recipient was German Chancellor Angela Merkel while Donald Trump was placed second.
