Previous POTY alumni include, in particular order: Mahatma Gandhi, Winston Churchill, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr, Pope John Paul II, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Queen Elizabeth II.

According to TIME, the POTY is awarded to “the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or ill, and embodied what was important about the year.”

Trump has certainly affected the news in a big and mixed way for huge amounts of people as he won the election and became President-elect of the United States.

In TIME's explanation of their choice, they wrote:

"For those who believe [Trump's triumph] is all for the better, Trump’s victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class; for those who see it as for the worse, the destruction extends to cherished norms of civility and discourse, a politics poisoned by vile streams of racism, sexism, nativism."

But on the cover of the magazine, people are all pointing out the same thing about Trump's picture and the placement of the TIME logo.
