Donald Trump is TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year

The magazine declared Hillary Clinton the runner-up

TIME Magazine announced Wednesday morning that Donald Trump is their Person of the Year for 2016. Each year, TIME chooses an individual who has had the biggest impact (positive or negative) on news and the world.

This year the world couldn’t look away as the American Presidential Election unfolded, so Trump seems like a pretty obvious choice.
