Donald Trump: Time’s ‘Person of the Year’

Magazine CoverOther Awards

trump-time-person-of-yearTrump is Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. In the article, Trump talks about his position as president elect:

What amazes a lot of people is that I’m sitting in an apartment the likes of which nobody’s ever seen. And yet I represent the workers of the world. I’m representing them, and they love me and I love them. And here we sit, in very different circumstances.

He talks about seeing a news story on NBC about the Carrier plant featuring a union representative and a plant worker talking in a bar.

[The man looked at the camera and said] ‘We want you to do what you said you were going to do.’ I said, I never said they weren’t going to move, to myself…He energized me, that man. And I called up the head of United Technologies.

He also talks about young illegal immigrants:

We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud. They got brought here at a very young age, they’ve worked here, they’ve gone to school here. Some were good students. Some have wonderful jobs. And they’re in never-never land because they don’t know what’s going to happen.

Time 100 Most Influential list

Other Awards

Time names Watson in its 100 list of top influencers primarily for her #HeForShe campaign. Watson’s international campaign calls for gender equality, even inviting men to give their support. Other actors on the list include Bradley Cooper and Julianne Moore. The magazine:

Her HeForShe speech at Davos was an Internet sensation, but unsurprisingly, it drew the typical antifeminist rants and even some threats. Watson chose to highlight the moving letters she has received from fathers who tell her they are investing new hope in the future for their daughters. But she was also frank about the bullying tactics of her detractors and one site that made an empty threat to release nude photos. Her confident and cool reaction: ‘If they were trying to put me off, they did the opposite.’
