House Speaker Paul Ryan said President Donald Trump has the "potential to become a truly transformational American figure" in his introduction of the president for Time Magazine's "Top 100 Most Influential People."

"Up close, I have found a driven, hands-on leader, with the potential to become a truly transformational American figure. I have little doubt that he will, once again, find a way to defy the odds and get it done," Ryan concluded in his 150-word bio of Trump.

Trump is No. 4 in Time's "Leaders" category — bookended by Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer at No. 3 and Elizabeth Warren at No. 5.

Britain Prime Minister Theresa May is No. 1 of "Leaders", followed by India Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The "Leaders" category contains 22 people, including North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (No. 8), Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte (No. 11), and Russian President Vladimir Putin (No. 15).

The rest of Ryan's intro of Trump:

"He always finds a way to get it done. When so many, including me at times, didn't see how he could pull it off, Donald Trump won a historic victory. And in becoming the 45th President of the United States, he completely rewrote the rules of politics and reset the course of this country.

"A businessman always willing to challenge convention, he has shaken up Washington and laid out an agenda of generational proportions. Never afraid of a battle, he has made it his mission to fight for those who feel forgotten.

"Where others would pivot, he stays true to who he is. Where others would turn back, he forges ahead.
