Time magazine has named US President-elect Donald Trump its Person of the Year.
“It’s a great honour. It means a lot,” Trump said in a telephone interview on NBC’s Today show.
Time editor Nancy Gibbs said on the programme that Democrat Hillary Clinton was the No 2 finalist. Gibbs said the choice of Trump this year was “straightforward.”
“When have we ever seen a single individual who has so defied expectations, broken the rules, violated norms, beaten not one but two political parties on the way to winning an election that he entered with 100-to-1 odds against him?” Gibbs said.
