US President-elect scoops up award

US President-elect Donald Trump has been named Time Magazine’s person of the year.

Trump’s first appearance on Time was in 1989. Since then, he’s been on magazine’s cover 10 times.

“So which is it this year: Better or worse? The challenge for Donald Trump is how profoundly the country disagrees about the answer,” Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs wrote in a magazine essay.

“For reminding America that demagoguery feeds on despair and that truth is only as powerful as the trust in those who speak it, for empowering a hidden electorate by mainstreaming its furies and live-streaming its fears, and for framing tomorrow’s political culture by demolishing yesterday’s, Donald Trump is Time’s 2016 Person of the Year,” Gibbs wrote.
