Other finalists that made the list include "The Dreamers" and "The #MeToo movement". It was a record breaking year for Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as he became the world's richest man and his company purchased Whole Foods Market.

That person - or thing - will be announced Wednesday morning.

It would be quite an achievement for Trump to score the honor in two consecutive years. Time says that's false.

And yet, of course, Trump is one of the ten TIME finalists. The investigation has led to charges against four individuals including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The #MeToo movement has gained steam in recent weeks as a growing number of people have come forward to accuse multiple public figures of sexual misconduct. His silent protest has morphed into a commentary by many across the country against President Trump.

Robbie's personal vision for Harley's next step is one that could fit either a solo movie or Gotham City Sirens , as it turns out. Polygon has reached out to Warner Bros. for more information and will update if that becomes available.

The Dreamers are the thousands of undocumented immigrants whose parents brought them to America as children.

The magazine gave a nod to Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has shaken up the Middle East with promises for a "more moderate Islam" and last month's shocking anti-corruption crackdown on Saudi officials and princes.

National Football League star Colin Kaepernick, who riled President Trump with his kneeling protests against alleged police brutality, is also in the running, as is the #MeToo web campaign against sexual harassment. Other players followed, and President Trump supercharged the controversy. The box-office smash "Wonder Woman" was hailed as a meaningful step forward for the representation of women in media.

Time has been selecting a Person of the Year since 1927, using the title to recognize "the person or group of people who most influenced the news during the past year, for better or for worse". Its choices have included almost every US president, Adolf Hitler, Ayatollah Khomeini, Mahatma Gandhi and Pope Francis, along with groups like the "Ebola fighters". His specific title was Citizen of the Year.

This year's shortlist for the Time Person of the Year.
