'Time Magazine' Releases 2017 Person of the Year Shortlist

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.

TIME's first selection was Charles Lindbergh, the first person to make a solo non-stop flight across the Atlantic.

Trump, who was Time's "Person of the Year" in 2016, has called the NFL "weak" in their response to the anthem and added that the league is run by the players.

Patty Jenkins, 46, is the first woman to direct a film that earned more than $100 million in its opening weekend - in this case, 2017's Wonder Woman.

Time.com noted that, "The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was unable to find an NFL suitor this year after launching a national protest against racism and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem".

Dreamers include nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as young children.

MeToo allowed women, and men, to join forces on social media to show that they too were victims of sexual harassment.

President Trump was named Person of the Year last year, calling it "a tremendous honor". The hashtag took off last month when a slew of high-profile men were publicly accused of sexual misconduct. The investigation has led to charges against four individuals including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" He was also written into the Communist Party's constitution, which bestowed him with new authority and reinforced him as the country's most powerful leader in modern history.

Xi Jinping, 64, was given a second five-year presidential term in China this year.

Trump was previously named Time's 2016 "Person of the Year".
