Time Magazine released its annual "100 Most Influential People" list on Wednesday. It is divided into five categories, with Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez receiving a place in the “leaders” section along with President Donald Trump
Ocasio-Cortez’s profile was written by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a 2020 contender for the Democratic presidential nomination and a fellow member of the progressive wing of the party, according to The Hill.
In the profile, Warren describes how Ocasio-Cortez managed to rebound from a tragic and trying period in 2008, when her father died from lung cancer during the same time as the financial crisis.
“Her commitment to putting power in the hands of the people is forged in fire,” Warren writes. “Coming from a family in crisis and graduating from school with a mountain of debt, she fought back against a rigged system and emerged as a fearless leader in a movement committed to demonstrating what an economy, a planet and a government that works for everyone should look like.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie praised Trump’s efforts at trying to reach a deal with North Korea, writing in his profile of the president that “Trump deserves great credit for daring to try to personally persuade Chairman Kim to join the family of nations. This approach holds the possibility for history–making changes on the Korean Peninsula to make us all safer.”
Also on the leaders list is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with Hillary Clinton describing her in a profile as “living proof that when it comes to getting the job done, more often than not, it takes a woman.”
Special counsel Robert Mueller, Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell also made the list.
