President Trump Was Named Time's "Runner-Up" Person Of The Year

President Trump Was Named Time's

Trump, Person of the Year in 2016, had tweeted recently that the magazine had told him he "probably" would be named again if he agreed to an interview and photo shoot.

The "silence breakers" - the women behind this year's #MeToo movement against sexual harassment - are Time magazine's 2017 "Person of the Year".

It took off last month when a slew of high-profile men were publicly accused of sexual misconduct, beginning with Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

"This reckoning appears to have sprung up overnight".

Time had shortlisted US President Donald Trump, Chinese president Xi Jinping, special counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the Dreamers and former San Francisco 49ers football player Colin Kaepernick and lastly, American film director and screenwriter, and the creator of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins - in that order.

Over the course of the conversation around sexual harassment and assault, accusations of sexual harassment and assault also emerged against many other well-known names such as actor Kevin Spacey and comedian Louis CK.

After the Times' exposé, dozens of women came forward sharing similar stories, and often worse, about Weinstein's behavior.

The wave of allegations has also hit the US Congress, where the longest serving member of the House, Democrat John Conyers, announced his retirement Tuesday and pressure is mounting on Democratic Senator Al Franken to resign.

"The galvanizing actions of the women on our cover...along with those of hundreds of others, and of many men as well, have unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s."
Time praised those who have given "voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social networks, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable".

"Its was especially hard this year, a year of so much disruption in the United States in around the world", said Felsenthal. Judd, Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, Swift, and Isabel Pascual are pictured on the magazine's cover.

In total there have been 3.2 million tweets sent about #MeToo, with some of the most widely shared sent by famous faces including Bette Midler and Lady Gaga. In 2015, the magazine named Angela Merkel for her decisive response to Europe's refugee crisis, one of many emergencies she has managed over the last decade.

"We must thank them for their courage in breaking the silence about sexual assault and for the global discussion they sparked", she said, according to her spokesman Steffen Seibert on Twitter.
