The TIME magazine today named US President-elect Donald Trump as the Person of the Year 2016.

What is Time Person of the year ?
Every December, TIME names the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year. Last year German Chancellor Angela Merkel was Time’s ‘Person of the Year’. The Person of the Year is picked by Time editors from among world leaders, artists, corporate czars and organisations who most influenced the news, for better or for worse. Donald Trump has been chosen for this year's honor for his stunning victory in the US Polls.
