Also on the list are The Dreamers, who are at risk of being forced to leave America after Trump's White House revealed its intentions to rescind Obama's legislation protecting immigrants who came to the country as children. Since then, allegations against other big names in Hollywood and entertainment have cost many high-powered men their jobs, multiple media outlets have reported.

Time also named the Dreamers - young adults whose legal status in the United States was put in limbo this year.

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.

Colin Kaepernick, 30, started the national protest against racism and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem during NFL games. His investigation has resulted in charges against four people tied to the campaign, including former Trump adviser Michael Flynn. 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.

President Trump was named Person of the Year last year, calling it "a tremendous honor".

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos made the shortlist for Time's "Person of the Year," a recognition of the person or group of people who most influenced the news during the past year, for better or for worse, according to the magazine.

Syria: Israeli missiles hit military base near Damascas
Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said the missile strike targeted a military base near Kesweh, south of Damascus. Israel has long warned that Iran is trying to establish a permanent presence in Syria.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman: Supporters describe the recently-elevated crown prince as bold and revolutionary, but his opponents call him reckless.

Other finalists for the honor are Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Dreamers, the undocumented immigrants who entered the US with their parents but may be forced to leave under proposed new federal guidelines. He has been a the subject of much controversy during his first year as president, including when he tweeted that he had already turned down the offer to be 2017's Person of the Year.

"I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!"

Xi Jinping: The Chinese President received a second five-year term this year.

The final selection for Person of the Year will be announced on Wednesday.
