TIME 'Person of the Year' Finalists Announced

President Trump faces off with victims of sexual assault, Kim Jong ...

Kim Jong Un, Colin Kaepernick and President Donald Trump are all in the running for the same title: TIME's Person of the Year.

TIME's first selection was Charles Lindbergh, the first person to make a solo non-stop flight across the Atlantic.

Time will announce the 2017 Person of the Year on Wednesday.

Patty Jenkins: The director of "Wonder Woman" who became the first female director of an American studio superhero movie. 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.

The magazine nominated North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, whom Trump has nicknamed "Little Rocket Man" and who has overseen ballistic missile tests that have raised fears of a nuclear confrontation.

Colin Kaepernick, 30, started the national protest against racism and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem during NFL games.

This season, hundreds of players have taken a knee before the anthem; some in criticism of President Donald Trump calling for the firing and suspension of players who disrespect the anthem.

It would be quite an achievement for Trump to score the honor in two consecutive years. He's brought charges against four people so far, including former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Jenkins is the only female on the shortlist, though numerous #metoo members are women who have shared stories of sexual harassment or assault against Harvey Weinstein and others. The movement began shortly after the bombshell New York Times expose about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, and since then, dozens of prominent figures across several industries-from Matt Lauer to Kevin Spacey to Mark Halperin to Charlie Rose-have lost their jobs when their victims finally felt empowered enough to speak out about their experiences. Sen.

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

"I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!" He was written into the Communist Party's constitution, making him China's most powerful leader since Mao Zedong.

This Year's TIME Person of the Year will truly be a summation of 2017.
