Donald Trump Named Time Magazine’s 2016 Person of the Year
President-elect Donald Trump has been named Time Magazine’s person of the year for 2016.
The publication made the announcement Wednesday morning, adding that the number two finalist was Hillary Clinton.
Time has historically given the title to the president-elect or the president each election year.
The announcement comes shortly after Trump made another cabinet selection.
During Trump’s second stop on his “Thank You” tour on Tuesday, he formally announced retired Marine General James Mattis as his choice for Secretary of Defense.
Trump made the announcement during a rally in North Carolina, praising Mattis as one of the most effective generals the United States has seen in decades.
Mattis will need a congressional waiver in order to accept the post since he has not been out of uniform for the seven years required of retired officers in order to hold a cabinet position.
On Friday, president-elect Donald Trump will be making a stop at the DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids as part of his “Thank You” tour.
