Kim Jong Un, 33, is the North Korean leader who's shaking Americans to their core with the renewed threat of nuclear war. "Yet the protest grew this year, as hundreds of National Football League players kneeled during the anthem in the wake of criticism from President Trump". The investigation has led to charges against four individuals including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

President Trump was named Person of the Year last year, calling it "a tremendous honor". The movement began shortly after the bombshell New York Times expose about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, and since then, dozens of prominent figures across several industries-from Matt Lauer to Kevin Spacey to Mark Halperin to Charlie Rose-have lost their jobs when their victims finally felt empowered enough to speak out about their experiences. Sen. He has been a the subject of much controversy during his first year as president, including when he tweeted that he had already turned down the offer to be 2017's Person of the Year.

"I said probably is no good and took a pass", he said, per NBC. He was granted a second five-year term and has been added to the Communist Party's constitution, Time reported.

The President of China is the country's most powerful leader in decades.

This Year's TIME Person of the Year will truly be a summation of 2017.
