President-elect Joe Biden said he's honored to be named Time magazine's Person of the Year alongside Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. He tweeted that he's "grateful" to be on a list with "so many extraordinary folks."
Earlier today, Time magazine announced it had named Biden and Harris 2020's Person of the Year.
The two made history on November 7 when they beat Trump in a bitter election that put him in a small club of presidents who served only one term. Harris on that day became the country's first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect.
Meanwhile, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan was named Businessperson of the Year. The video chat service spiked in popularity amid a health crisis that forced people to work and learn from home.
In the category of Guardians of the Year, Time named activists Assa Traoré, Porche Bennett-Bey and racial-justice organizers; frontline health workers fighting the pandemic; and Dr. Anthony Fauci.
