The finalists for the annual honor were revealed Monday morning on Today, with President Donald Trump once again in the running alongside two of his biggest political foes - special counsel Robert Mueller and football-star-turned-philanthropist Colin Kaepernick.

Or it might be Kim Jong Un.

Basically, Trump has picked a fight with or is on the opposite side of about half the list.

See Time's full list here.

Other finalists for the honor are Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Dreamers, the undocumented immigrants who entered the US with their parents but may be forced to leave under proposed new federal guidelines.

Catalan party leader Oriol Junqueras refused bail as poll nears
Pilar Gonzalez, 76, said while walking her dog in Barcelona that the jailed Catalan political leaders were "political prisoners". The remaining ex ministers and former regional president Carles Puigdemont are in Belgium, fighting extradition to Spain.


The founder and CEO of Amazon is now the richest person in the world. Trump has also proposed ending DACA, a programme that gives legal status to "Dreamers", undocumented immigrants that have been in the USA since they were children. The Trump administration has said it plans to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" smashed records at the box office this summer and women everywhere celebrated. She is the first female director to break the $100 mark in an opening weekend.

Kim Jong Un, 33, is the North Korean leader who's shaking Americans to their core with the renewed threat of nuclear war. A number of other players have since joined the movement by taking a knee during the national anthem. His silent protest has morphed into a commentary by many across the country against President Trump. The #MeToo hashtag spread after allegations came out against film executive Harvey Weinstein.

The #MeToo movement represents the people, mostly women, who have fueled a worldwide discussion about sexual harassment and assault. Robert Mueller's name has been in the news nearly daily since he was appointed as special counsel after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey. So far four people have been charged and the investigation continues.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman: Supporters describe the recently-elevated crown prince as bold and revolutionary, but his opponents call him reckless. If he wins the coveted spot, President Donald Trump could possibly tweet about wining a second term as Time's Person of the Year.

One of the names noticeably missing from the list was former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who had been among the finalists a year ago but ultimately lost out to President Trump.
