Time Taps Kim Jong Un Once Again for 'Most Influential' List

Time Taps Kim Jong Un Once Again for 'Most Influential' List

North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un has cracked Time Magazine's annual list of the "100 Most Influential People" for the eighth time, labeling him one of the world's most dangerous leaders.

"President Donald Trump has his share of challenges — none so dangerous as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's unrelenting and accelerating nuclear ambitions, which included two nuclear tests in 2016 and numerous missile launches, with more expected this year," Christopher Hill, a former U.S. ambassador to South Korea, writes in Time.

"After five years in power, there are no signs that the mercurial and corpulent Kim is mellowing. Since perp-walking his uncle out of a party meeting and having him shot soon after, Kim has been on a murder spree, executing more than 300 people, often in public with firing squads.

"He is widely believed to have ordered the recent murder of his half brother Kim Jong Nam with a VX nerve agent in the Kuala Lumpur airport."

Kim now ranks only behind Chinese President Xi Jinping in number of appearances on the Time list. With his appearance on the 2017 list Xi Jinping has now been tapped eight times.
