Over the course of the last year, the entire world has been President Trump’s oyster, so to speak, and TIME Magazine certainly knows it.
The biggest story of 2016, and 2017, and perhaps the entire decade, has been the election of business mogul Donald Trump as the President of these United States. The “Trump Effect”, America’s conservative awakening, and the rise of the liberal neo-Fascsists are all directly related to America’s electoral choice, creating an atmosphere of political revolution that our nation hasn’t faced in well over a century.
This, of course, makes President Donald J. Trump the overtly obvious choice to be TIME Magazine’s “Person of The Year”, again.
Trump, however, has politely declined.
“President Donald Trump turned down the opportunity to be TIME’s Person of the Year, revealing that the magazine editors offered him the chance to participate.
“’Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot,’ he said. ‘I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!’
“Trump was TIME’s person of the year in 2016, after beating Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.”
Given the immense scheduling concerns and the tumult that our nation currently faces, Trump’s decision to forego the honor will allow the President to continue focusing on the task at hand in Washington D.C.
As we approach the end of the year, Donald Trump has a number of fires to fight both at home and abroad. The republican tax plan will soon be snaking its way into the houses of Congress, with much massaging left to do in order to find the votes necessary to become law, thanks in no small part to “resistance” democrats and RINO republicans.
Furthermore, abroad, the President is dealing with flack from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, as well as a burgeoning concern over the reality of the currently cold conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Now would not be a great time for the President to step away for the repeat honor.
