Critics of President-elect Donald Trump upset he was named TIME magazine’s “Person of the Year” took to Twitter to express their disapproval.
The TIME magazine cover named Donald Trump as the “President of the Divided States of America,” which seemed appropriate as many were quick to equate Trump to Adolf Hitler, who had previously been named Person of the Year by TIME.
Trump is TIME's Person of the Year. So was Hitler.

Donald Trump is TIME Person of the Year, joining past honorees including Hitler, Stalin, the Ayatollah Khamenei, and you.

Other compared Trump the Devil himself.
At this point, the Person of the Year should just be Satan

I don't know if Trump is eligible for Person of the Year. Because "person" connotes at least some form of humanity.

Nice to see that Donald Trump has been named Time magazine's 'most annoying person of the year'.

Don't get upset at @TIME magazine. I'm sure they're just as unhappy as we are that he was Person of the Year

Regardless whether people like it or not, just as Donald Trump is President-elect of the United States, he is also TIME magazine’s person of the year.
