Two Republican presidential candidates and both Democratic candidates are on Time Magazine's list of The 100 Most Influential People of 2016.

The magazine placed them and other notable American politicians from both parties among a list of artists, athletes, world leaders, and celebrities. They are on the list because, according to the magazine, "they each embody a breakthrough: they broke the rules, broke a record, broke the silence, broke the boundaries to reveal what they're capable of."

Donald Trump is called "rule breaker" in his profile on the list.

"To expect Donald Trump to conform to the 'norms' of business and politics is like expecting a square peg to fit in a round hole. It's just not going to happen," Republican Congresswoman Renee Elmers wrote in Trump's profile.

"If ever there were a time for Americans to have a ferocious leader in the White House advocating for us, it's now," she wrote.

Ted Cruz's list entry calls him the "conservative crusader." In Cruz's list profile, Wisconsin's Gov. Scott Walker wrote, "Ted Cruz is unique in politics today as he is actually doing the things that he said he would do."

More Republicans made the list, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus, and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.

In Paul Ryan's profile, Mitt Romney wrote, "His is a mind that is creative and unrelenting."

Reince Priebus "almost single-handedly turned the Republican National Committee around," Paul Ryan wrote in Priebus' profile

Gov. Nikki Haley governed South Carolina with "determination, grace, and passion," Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote in her profile.  

Hillary Clinton's profile writer, Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar, calls her "the friend who takes the call, the public servant who listens and acts, the mom who makes sure it gets done."

Bernie Sanders' profile notes the candidate's "intensity and steadfastness."

President Barack Obama's profile writer calls him a voice "for the voiceless."

Air Force General Lori Robinson made the list, as did U.S. and coalition forces leader Sean MacFarland, FBI Director James Comey, and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the pediatrician in Flint, Mich. who tested the children affected by the water crisis there.

Other notables on the list are Pope Francis, Apple CEO Tim Cook, and wrestler-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
