President-elect Donald Trump was named TIME magazine's Person of the Year on Wednesday.
The title is given to the person who "most influenced the news, for better or for worse" in a given year. On the cover, Trump is dubbed "President of the Divided States of America."
Other contenders included Hillary Clinton, all hackers (in keeping with recent tradition of naming a nebulous entity to the list), Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the creators of the CRISPR gene-editing tool, and Beyoncé.
Here's TIME's announcement on Twitter.
...for framing tomorrow's political culture by demolishing yesterday's, Donald Trump is TIME's 2016 Person of the Year.
In an essay explaining the choice, TIME pointed to Trump's disruption -- both to the governing elites and to "cherished norms of civility and discourse" -- and his embrace of Twitter over traditional means of communication.
Trump called the title "a great honor" in a morning interview on "Today."
