Seems like Modi and Trump together have a big time plan to troll their audiences every time. During the presidential elections when all the eyes were glued on Trump, Modi broke the news with demonstration.
And now, when all the Modi ‘bhakts’ were celebrating their leader to be the TIMEs person of the year, Trump is here with the victory trophy!
President-elect Donald Trump, the real estate businessman and political novice whose election campaign made the entire world take notice, has been selected as TIME’s 2016 Person of the Year.
The magazine revealed its choice Wednesday on TODAY.
“To be on the cover of Time as Person of the Year is a tremendous honor,” Trump told Matt Lauer in an interview after the reveal.
The President-elect did however take issue with the magazine’s choice to refer to him as “President of the Divided States of America.”
“I think putting ‘divided’ is snarky,” Trump said. “I didn’t do anything to divide.”
Every year, TIME editors select the person — or idea — who has most influenced the news and the world in the past year, for good or ill.
“So which is it this year: Better or worse? The challenge for Donald Trump is how profoundly the country disagrees about the answer,” TIME managing editor Nancy Gibbs wrote in a magazine essay.
Trump beat out 10 other finalists, including his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. TIME declared Clinton their runner-up, and she was also the top pick among TODAY viewers.
