Every year since 1927, U.S. publication "TIME" Magazine has named a Person of the Year, someone its editors say had the, quote, "greatest influence, for better or worse on the events of the year.
Most U.S. presidents have been named since the tradition started. So as some other prominent world leaders, from the widely popular, to the highly controversial, movers and shakers, doctors who helped Ebola victims, protesters and popes have all received the title. And this week, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump was named "TIME`s" Person of the Year.
The magazine`s editor called the choice one of the more straightforward ones. She described Mr. Trump`s appeal as, quote, "part hope, part snarl."
She said he framed tomorrow`s political culture by demolishing yesterday`s, and said 2017 would bring in the chance to fulfill promises and defy expectations like all newly elected leaders.
