TIME reveals shortlist for 2017 Person of the Year

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

While we wait for the victor to be announced on December 6 on the Today show and Time's website, check out the shortlist below, and vote for who you think deserves the title this year! The title, which will be awarded on Wednesday, goes to the individual or group that TIME deems to have been the most influential in 2017.

One of the names noticeably missing from the list was former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who had been among the finalists a year ago but ultimately lost out to President Trump. His silent protest has morphed into a commentary by many across the country against President Trump.

Time Magazine's "Person of the Year" shortlist includes President Trump, special counsel Robert Mueller and Colin Kaepernick. Their fate is still in the wind as Democrats have threatened to let the government shut down if the Dreamers question remains unresolved. The movement was meant to shine a light on how prevalent this problem is and sparked a time of reckoning for those who had gotten away with abuses of power for too long.

Jeff Bezos, 53, became the richest man in the world this year, with a net worth of $97.7 billion.

You couldn't have a Person of the Year list in 2017 without Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping and Donald Trump. Jenkins is now signed on to direct the second installment of "Wonder Woman". Many others have now followed Kaepernick's lead and protest the anthem, but he was sacked and recently sued the National Football League for collusion among owners preventing him from getting a job with another team.

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.

Time refuted the president's claim, tweeting that he "is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year".

The #MeToo movement has gained steam in recent weeks as a growing number of people have come forward to accuse multiple public figures of sexual misconduct. Mueller has since brought charges against several people while investigating Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

"I said probably is no good and took a pass", he said, per NBC.
