WORLDWIDE — Time Magazine has announced its shortlist for its Person of the Year.
World leaders, social activists and more are on the shortlist, which the magazine announced Monday morning. The title, which will be awarded on Wednesday, goes to the individual or group that TIME deems to have been the most influential in 2017. The tradition stretches back to 1927.
The president was named Person of the Year in 2016, shortly after being elected. He is on the shortlist this year after a recent Twitter exchange with the magazine in which he said he told Time no, and the publication responded that the president was incorrect.
Here's a look at everyone on the shortlist:
- Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder and CEO
- The Dreamers, Undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children by their parents whose legal immigration status is uncertain
- Patty Jenkins, Director of record-breaking film, "Wonder Woman"
- Kim Jong Un, Leader of North Korea
- Colin Kaepernick, Current NFL free agent who inspired other NFL players to bend a knee during the national anthem to protest racism and police brutality
