‘TIME’ Magazine Person of the Year is an annual issue from the news magazine. Fun fact, it was called 'Man Of The Year' until 1999. The title is given to a person that ‘for better or for worse...has done the most to influence events of the year.’ It began in 1927 with American aviator, Charles Lindbergh.
- In 1949 Winston Churchill was named ‘Man of the Half Century.’
- In 1999 Albert Einstein was ‘Person of the Century.’
The issue always comes out at the end of the year, and this year it's none other than President-Elect Donald J. Trump. However, this isn't a huge surprise. Since the inception of the list every single POTUS except for Calvin Coolidge has received the title.
Donald Trump is one of two Presidents to receive the title before going into office, the other is Dwight D. Eisenhower. Of course, coming from one of the most controversial elections in American history, people feel some kind of way. So they took to Twitter to air their feelings.
