Time announces Person of the Year finalists, including Trump

Colin Kaepernick a finalist for Time's 2017 Person of the Year

The movement aims to shed light on the pervasiveness of sexual assault and harassment, and gained traction after producer Harvey Weinstein and dozens of other men were accused of sexual assault. His silent protest has morphed into a commentary by many across the country against President Trump.

The tradition began in 1927 and Time has been acknowledging the person or group of people who has had the most influence on current news each year ever since.

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.

Mueller was named special counsel investigating the Trump campaign and its alleged ties to Russian Federation and its quest to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Dreamers include nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as young children. The investigation has led to charges against four individuals including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn. He's the son of Saudi Arabia's King Salman.

Bowles said both players will return to the starting lineup next week - unless they give the coach a reason to change his mind. Peters was penalized for throwing a penalty flag into the stands after the Jets' two-point try with 2:15 left in the game.

Eagles, Jeffery agree to four-year extension
To start, the deal is going to have a huge impact on what the Eagles can do this offseason in terms of adding players to their roster.

One of the names on the list of the final ten picks this year is Colin Kaepernick, the former 49ers quarterback who sparked the #TakeAKnee protests last year.

Donald Trump, 71, was sworn into office in January 2017, and he's spent the months since working toward dismantling the work of the Obama Administration on health care, immigration policy, environmental regulations, and tax reforms.

"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 wrote.

He added: "I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" If he wins the coveted spot, President Donald Trump could possibly tweet about wining a second term as Time's Person of the Year.

The 2017 Person of the Year will be announced on the TODAY Show Wednesday morning.
