This morning, TIME announced their selection for the annual Person of the Year issue, and it's exactly who most Americans thought it would be.
President-elect Donald Trump.
"This is the 90th time we have named the person who had the greatest influence, for better or worse, on the events of the year," TIME's Nancy Gibbs explained in her introductory piece.
"So which is it this year: Better or worse? The challenge for Donald Trump is how profoundly the country disagrees about the answer.
"It’s hard to measure the scale of his disruption," Gibbs continued." This real estate baron and casino owner turned reality-TV star and provocateur—never a day spent in public office, never a debt owed to any interest besides his own—now surveys the smoking ruin of a vast political edifice that once housed parties, pundits, donors, pollsters, all those who did not see him coming or take him seriously. Out of this reckoning, Trump is poised to preside, for better or worse."
Past recipients include Mahatma Gandhi, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Wallis Simpson, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Joseph Stalin, the Queen, Martin Luther King Jr., Richard Nixon, the computer and ebola fighters.
Hillary Clinton made the number two spot on this year's list.
"Winners get to write history. Losers, if they are lucky, get a ballad," Charlotte Alter wrote.
"Hillary Clinton made history for three decades as an advocate, a First Lady, a Senator, and a Secretary of State, but she will now be remembered as much for what she didn’t do as what she did. A female candidate in an election that didn’t hinge on gender after all, she became a symbol in a fight that was about much more than symbolism. She’s the woman who was almost President, she is what might have been and what will yet be."
