Donald Trump left the world in shock after his stunning victory at the 2016 U.S. Presidential Elections. But the ?Trump Effect? has just started. The 45th U.S. President wins Time Person of the Year Award, and as expected, the Twitterverse is not happy.
The decision was made on Wednesday via the Today show. Time?s managing editor Nancy Gibbs said picking Trump was a no-brainer. She said, ?I?ve never seen so much agreement about who had the most influence.?
Various social media platforms almost exploded with disagreement right after the news broke. Twitterverse obviously had a lot of things to say. And the comments are mostly negative.
Netizens are quick to point that being hailed as the ?Person of the Year? is another thing that Trump shares with Hitler. The former Nazi leader of Germany was chosen as the Time Person of the Year in 1938. A Twitter user even noticed that the magazine cover made the new U.S. President look he had devil horns.
I hear Time ripped Trump in their "Person of the Year" article. Of course, it's Time Magazine. Doesn't matter, we still got the cover. 🙂

Another Twitter user said Trump deserves to be Time Person of the Year 2016. That?s because if this dumpster fire of a year needed human representation, he’s it. Another netizen assumed that Time picked Trump as its person of the year because they know he’ll buy 500,000 copies.

Time Person of the Year Award
Anybody being named as Time Person of the Year does not mean that he is the best. It doesn?t mean that he is the worst either. Rather, the most influential.
While the majority of Twitter users do not agree with the decision, others point out that Trump has been a pretty influential person. It has been the case for the past couple of months. There is no doubt that Trump has the spotlight with an incredible amount of attention from the media.
