US president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris have been chosen as Time magazine’s 2020 “Person of the Year”, the publication announced Thursday.

The Democratic pair were chosen ahead of three other finalists: frontline healthcare workers and Anthony Fauci, the racial justice movement, and President Donald Trump who Biden defeated in November’s election.

Time’s magazine cover has a picture of Biden, 78, and Harris, 56, with the subtitle “Changing America’s story”.

Biden beat Trump by 306 electoral college votes to Trump’s 232 to end the real estate tycoon-turned-politician’s presidency after one term.

Biden received roughly seven million more votes than his Republican adversary, who is yet to concede, claiming widespread fraud of which there is no evidence.

Teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg was Time’s “Person of the Year” last year, while Trump won in 2016.
