The magazine announced its pick on NBC‘s “Today” on Wednesday morning.

“It’s a great honor, it means a lot,” Trump said in a phone interview after he was named.

“Especially me growing up, reading Time magazine, it’s a very important magazine. I’ve been lucky enough to be on the cover many times this year and last year,” he said.

This is the 90th time the magazine is naming the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year.

The magazine’s cover called Trump “President-elect of the divided States of America”.

Asked if Time’s announcement was a compliment, Trump said, “When you say divided states of America, I didn’t divide ’em, they’re divided now… we’re going to put it back together.”

Last year’s Person of the Year was German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Trump was a runner-up.

      Time’s Man of the year doesn’t always mean positive. Hitler was once Time’s man of the year. Same with Fidel Castro. And Anonymous, that group of whatever they are. So your Simone Biles is better off where she is lol

    trump I love u, u are my president. I swear he reminds me of myself. no matter how many people are against people like us, we keep pushing and pushing and we always succeed in the end.

    “been lucky enough to be on the cover many times
    this year and last year,” he said.”

    typical trump. he must boast and brag. that’s why I love him. assuming he didn’t win person of the year, he will probably complain bitterly on twitter. LOOL.

      I hope you’ll be the first person admitted once Mike Pence urges Trump to start using your tax dollars to support the use of electroshock therapy at gay conversion clinics.

      I’ll be so happy because I won’t have to see your bitter comments on this blog anymore.
