This year's finalists for Time magazine's Person of the Year include world leaders, the participants of major social movements and the National Football League quarterback who sparked widespread protests in a quest for a justice.
It would be quite an achievement for Trump to score the honor in two consecutive years.
On the list along with Trump, though, are some seriously deserving individuals.
"The North Korean leader has renewed the threat of nuclear war in American minds, launching repeated intercontinental ballistic missile tests and exchanging threats and insults with President Trump, who dubbed him 'Rocket Man, '" Time said. Jenkins is the only female on the shortlist, though numerous #metoo members are women who have shared stories of sexual harassment or assault against Harvey Weinstein and others.
"The Dreamers:" The undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children by their parents.
Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman: Supporters describe the recently-elevated crown prince as bold and revolutionary, but his opponents call him reckless.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick started a movement when he took a knee during the National Anthem a year ago to protest racial injustice.
Patty Jenkins, who directed "Wonder Woman", is the lone woman on the list, not including the groups that were nominated. The magazine awards the title annually to the biggest newsmaker of the year-not necessarily who they believe is the "best" person of the year.
Past winners include 13 different US presidents, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Adolf Hitler, The Computer and Mahatma Gandhi. The nominees include people who've spent the year fighting for progressive change, and others who've been doing all they can to stop that progress in its tracks.
TIME, which revealed its list of finalists Monday on TODAY, has awarded the Person of the Year title since 1927.
