This is the first time a vice president has been named as a Person of the Year, Time said.
“The Biden-Harris ticket represents something historic, Person of the year is not just about the year that was, but about where we’re headed to”. Time tweeted alongside a video.
Biden beat Trump by 306 electoral college votes to Trump’s 232 to end the real estate tycoon-turned-politician’s presidency.
There were three other finalists shortlisted for the recognition, Donald Trump, the frontline health care workers and Dr Anthony Fauci and the racial justice movement.
