#MeToo Movement In Running For Time's Person Of The Year

Time is too politically correct to crown a worthy ‘Person of the Year

Trump, who was Time's "Person of the Year" in 2016, has called the NFL "weak" in their response to the anthem and added that the league is run by the players.

Saudi Arabia's 32-year-old crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, elevated by his father King Salman in June, was on the list too.

The recipient of the Person of the Year appears on the cover of the annual edition of the magazine. He has been hailed for promising a more moderate Islam and for leading a crackdown on businessmen and members of the royal family accused of corruption.

Trump, who was named Person of the Year 2016, is also in the race against Robert Mueller - the ex-FBI boss tasked with trawling through allegations of Russian collusion in the Presidential election.

Others on the shortlist for this year's award include Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Trump, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller and "Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins.

"The Amazon CEO became the richest man in the world this year and continues to expand the global reach of his retail empire", Time wrote. He was the Person of the Year in 1999.

Colin Kaepernick: "The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was unable to find an NFL suitor this year after launching a national protest against racism and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem".

TIME will reportedly announce the 2017 "Person of the Year" on Wednesday, December 6th. Jenkins set a major milestone in becoming the first woman to direct a film that grossed more than $100 million during its first weekend in theaters.

With Kim's threats of nuclear war, Xi's influence as China's most powerful leader in decades, and, of course, Trump's status as president of the United States, the news cycle has been a whirlwind this year.

Director Patty Jenkins is returning behind the camera for Wonder Woman 2, and is now co-writing the script with Dave Callaham (The Expendables, Godzilla) and DC Films co-chairman Geoff Johns.

Trump tweeted last month that Time told him he was "probably" going to receive the title for a second straight year, but said he wasn't interested.

Trump has already been embroiled in a controversy over Person of the Year, claiming two weeks ago that he had turned down an offer for this year's honour.
