President Trump and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick are among 10 candidates nominated for TIME's 2017 Person of the Year. Trump was named TIME's 2016 Person of the Year after his historic election, and TIME is considering him again for spending his first year "attempting to dismantle the work of the Obama Administration." Kaepernick launched a national conversation about "racism and police brutality" when he chose to kneel during the national anthem. Who should be TIME's Person of the Year? 🏆

TIME announced its shortlist of candidates for the 2017 Person of the Year which includes: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, the #MeToo movement, Kim John Un and Robert Mueller. President Trump and Colin Kaepernick are also nominated.

After winning TIME's 2016 Person of the Year for his historic presidential election, Trump has once again been nominated, this time for what he has accomplished his first year in office—from dismantling Obama-era policies to feuding on Twitter. 

President Trump, who was named 2016 Person of the Year, has spent his first year in the Oval Office attempting to dismantle the work of the Obama Administration, from health care to immigration policy, environmental regulations to tax reform, all while continuing to spark feuds and controversy with an unfiltered Twitter feed.

The president seems to believe he will be the likely winner.

And Trump's supporters scoff at the idea of Kaepernick winning.

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick has also been nominated for kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality and starting a national movement that has been criticized by President Trump. Many believe the protest has cost Kaepernick his job, and are boycotting the NFL in response.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback was unable to find an NFL suitor this year after launching a national protest against racism and police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem. Yet the protest grew this year, as hundreds of NFL players kneeled during the anthem in the wake of criticism from President Trump.

And many want to see Kaepernick win just to watch Trump meltdown.
