Which Trump-Bashing Direction Will Time Go for Person of the Year?
Time reveals shortlist for 2018 which includes Putin, Mueller, separated migrant families, and "March for Our Lives" kids.
President Trump was revealed as one of the 10 candidates shortlisted for the honor of being named the 2018 Time Person of the Year.
However, just about everyone else on the shortlist, which was unveiled on the TODAY show this morning, would be an obvious embarrassment to the White House if they grace the upcoming magazine cover.
The others include:
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Trump’s Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual assault.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is at the center of reports about his country’s interference in U.S. elections.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the probe into possible collusion and other crimes during the presidential election.
Journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was slain by Saudi agents in a crime that has not been strongly condemned by the president.
The “March for our Lives” activists, who have been vocal about their condemnation of the president’s connections to the NRA and his stance on gun control.
Families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border, an inclusion that can only be seen as a direct rebuke on Trump policy.
The list is rounded out by the Duchess of Sussex, the former Meghan Markle, Black Panther director Ryan Coogler, and South Korean President Moon Jae-In.
