New Delhi : US President Donald Trump was chosen the TIME’s person of the year 2016 for his unprecedented and stunning victory in US polls.
Speaking on his award Trump said It is an hounour to be on cover of such a magazine. I have grown up reading the magazine. It is a tremendous honour.
A statement from the magazine said it is very hard to measure the scale of his disruption that he did by overturning all bets against him. Generally the presidential bid which had been favouring more of a candidate of a political precedent for the first time in generations went to something of a different tone. It is very significant breakthrough, the magazine had quoted.
Every December the TIME names the person with the best influence be it good or bad over the eyar in a worldwide basis. Last year German Chancellor Angela Merkel was chosen for the award.
