Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were named Time magazine’s 2020 Person of the Year on Thursday for their election victory over Donald Trump.
The Democratic couple were shortlisted by three of the other finalists: frontline health care workers and Anthony Fauci, the Racial Justice Movement, and President Trump.
Trump has yet to respond to the news that he lost to Biden, but he is known to have had an ongoing feud with the magazine due to its failure in his selection in previous years. He was named Time of the Year character in 2016.
Time’s 2020 magazine cover of Personality of the Year features photos of Biden, 78, and Harris, 56, with the subtitle “ Changing America’s story. ”
“To change the American story, to show that the powers of compassion are greater than the anger of division, to share a vision of healing in a sad world,” said Edward Filsenthal, editor of Time magazine.
President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris were named Time magazine’s Person of the Year 2020 on Thursday for their election victory over Donald Trump.
Some social media users criticized Time Magazine for choosing Biden and Harris
Others joked that Trump lost to Biden again by choosing time
Felsenthal notes, ‘Every elected president since Roosevelt has been at some point during his tenure a Person of the Year, roughly a dozen of them in a presidential election year. This is the first time that we have included a vice president.
Together they offered to restore and renovate in one ticket. And America bought what they were selling.
Biden defeated Trump by 306 electors to 232 for Trump to end the presidency of the real estate mogul-turned-politician after one term.
He received nearly seven million more votes than his Republican opponent, who has yet to concede, claiming widespread fraud with no evidence of this.
Time praised the Democratic ticket to overthrow the current president for the tenth time in US history.

Biden and Harris had to revive the party’s fading power with white voters without college degrees; Revitalize its emerging base of diverse urban youth voters; And to motivate the hordes of angry suburban residents, especially college graduates and women, who fled the Republican Party under Trump. ”
When Time asked him what people would like to say about him after four years in the White House, Biden replied: “America was better off and ordinary Americans were better off the day we left than the day we arrived. That’s my goal.
Harris is the first elected vice president to win the Person of the Year award.
She said in an interview with Time magazine that the Biden administration would have to address a host of issues from the White House, including the pandemic, “the economic crisis” and “a long-awaited account of racial justice.”
“We should be able to multitask, just like any parent or human being,” Harris said.

Healthcare workers were also among the winners of the Time Person of the Year award in 2020. Pictured, medical workers wearing protective gear in Ohio in November
Key frontline workers against the coronavirus pandemic, including doctors, nurses and grocery store clerks, topped the readers ’poll of who should be the person of the year.
The choice of Biden and Harris was met with a mixture of praise and criticism, with some claiming it was an insult to medical personnel.
“Time magazine doesn’t pick frontline workers as People of the Year who have made a lot of clarity this year.” Condemned @ Curtis Hook.
Instead, they showed their far-left inclination (and the sheer hatred of the 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump) by choosing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

Critics have taken to Twitter to criticize the decision to condone healthcare workers
Some fans of Trump joked that it was the only win Biden would have won, despite his election victory.
Give Joe Biden the Person of the Year award. He’s going to need something because he’s not going to get the oval, ‘DeanBrowningPA kidding.
Others claimed the joke was on Trump because he was beaten by Biden again.
‘Time Mag’s People pf the Year: Biden and Harris. That means Biden has defeated Trump again, Torey said.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the temporal character of the year. Don’t worry Donald Trump, you can always be the best time prisoner of the year. ”
“Now that Biden and Harris have been named Time Magazine’s Best Personality of the Year, the Republican Party is planning to file a lawsuit for fraud, while both Law and Hanetti are crying out endlessly about the conspiracy,” Kurt Eichenwald joked on Twitter, referring to Trump’s failed legal attempts to cancel Election results while filing unfounded claims of fraud.

Amy Siskind added: “Trump will be angry on Twitter about Biden / Harris being the 3-2-1 Person of the Year …”
But Trump remained silent as word of his loss spread. Instead, he kept chanting his baseless allegations of election fraud and ignoring the result of time.
The Trump campaign shared this photo of him superimposed on the body of 2019 prize winner Greta Thunberg after the president got angry that he didn’t win again.
Why didn’t the fake media, the FBI and Justice Department report on the Biden affair before the election. Well, it’s okay, we won the election anyway – 75,000,000 votes !!! He wrote among the tweets on Thursday night.
In previous years, Trump revolted against the magazine to pick out other people.
Last year, his campaign even released a photo of his face superimposed on the cover of the corpse of 16-year-old activist Great Thunberg, who was the 2019 winner.
Trump’s Twitter feud with Time dates back to 2012 when he wrote: “Last year I learned that TIME Magazine lost all its credibility when it didn’t include me in the top 100 companies …”
His anger increased in 2013, claiming that “Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People List is a joke and stunt a magazine, like Newsweek, will soon die. Bad List!”
A temporary truce appeared in August 2015 after overseeing the cover, but it wavered again when German Chancellor Angela Merkel was named 2015 Person of the Year.
He said, “ I told you TIME would never pick me as one of the best characters despite being the favorite, they chose the one who would destroy Germany. ”
However, a year later, Trump was their choice, which he described as “a great honor.”
The president claimed that he turned down the opportunity again in 2017 after he was told it was likely the winner, saying it was “ not good and I took a pass. ”
However, his anger of ignorance flared up again in 2019 with Thunberg being chosen.
Trump’s Twitter feud with Time magazine began in 2012
Trump praised the magazine for choosing it in 2016
However, the dispute renewed again by 2017 when it was not the main option
In 2019, Trump was outraged when Greta Thunberg was named Person of the Year
‘very silly. Greta has to solve her anger management problem then go on a good old movie with a friend! Greta cold, cold! He said about the teenage activist at the time.
