Trump Makes Time's 100 List, Paul Ryan Has Nothing But This To Say

Even though rumors are swirling about a war brewing behind the scenes at the White House, it didn't stop some of the key players from being recognized by the Time Magazine list. President Donald Trump was on it, along with his aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Kusher's arch nemesis, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. Ivanka Trump, the first daughter, also made the list.

Time puts out the list every year, and gets notable honorees to write about those who make the list. This year, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was tapped to write about Mr. Trump. Though Ryan and Trump may have their disagreements at times, Ryan had nothing but positive things to offer. He called Mr. Trump a 'driven, hands-on leader.'

'"He always finds a way to get it done," Ryan explained. "When so many, including me at times, didn't see how he could pull it off, Donald Trump won a historic victory."

Henry Kissinger's letter about Kushner read, "As part of the Trump family, Jared is familiar with the intangibles of the President. As a graduate of Harvard and NYU, he has a broad education; as a businessman, a knowledge of administration. All this should help him make a success of his daunting role flying close to the sun."

A Time staff editor wrote a rather unflattering tribute to Bannon, and why he made the list. "Stephen Bannon may no longer function as the 45th President's chief strategist, but no one else had as much influence on Donald Trump's general-election campaign and first two months in office," Michael Duffy wrote. "But then Trump realized that rather than scoring legislative victories, Bannon was doing little more than alienating voters outside Trump’s base and getting way too much attention along the way,' the journalist pointed out.

"For Trump, it was too disruptive," he added.

Ivanka Trump's praises were sung by Wendi Deng Murdoch, former wife of Rupert Murdoch, businesswoman, producer and long-time friend of Ivanka.

"Ivanka continues to earn my respect and admiration for how she has chosen to use her new visibility. She has long advocated to empower women and girls and is now leading education initiatives and working to put an end to human trafficking. I am deeply impressed by her courage to leave behind life as she knew it and move her young family to Washington to pursue positive change," she wrote. "My daughters have long looked up to her. Now women and girls around the globe can look up to her too."
