Donald Trump is Time magazine’s Person of the Year

US President-elect Donald Trump has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2016.

The property tycoon and reality TV star completed one of the biggest upsets in political history when he beat Hillary Clinton to the White House. In 2016, Donald Trump’s rivals were Mrs Clinton and Vladimir Putin. It is pretty logical that American magazine decided to make the Person of the Year the Presiden-elect.

Among other nominees for the Person of the year was also the British politician Nigel Farage. He is the former leader of the UK Independence Party, his role in the successful campaign for Britain to leave the European Union was tremendous.

Hillary Clinton came second in the selection, Time’s managing editor Nancy Gibbs said, adding that the choice of Mr Trump was “straightforward”. Time said the president-elect had redrawn America’s political rules.
