With Time Magazine's declaration that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the Person of the Year, the German media named President Trump "Loser of the Year".
Biden-Harris named Person of the Year
Time Magazine recently announced its Person of the Year 2020, co-naming former Vice President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. President Donald Trump, frontline health workers, and Dr. Fauci and the “Movement for Racial Justice” were the other candidates – Biden was originally nominated by himself.

In a long profile piece of the adopted president and the elected vice president, Charlotte Alter wrote that Biden's pledge to "restore the soul to the nation" felt like an outdated Hokum in a moment as Hurricane Trump pierced America and pierced institutions. Chew and spit norms. "
President Trump was the person of the year of the time in 2016 – and as a small consolation for the defeat this year, the German magazine Der Spiegel announced that he had won its award. However, the award was "Loser of the Year".
The head of the Washington office of the Spiegel, Roland Nelles, said together with Ralf Neukirch that President Trump is "a man who … never cares about the common good, but always about one thing – himself".
"Nothing is normal under Trump," the article continued. “He refuses to admit defeat. Instead, he speaks of massive electoral fraud, although there is no evidence to back it up. The whole thing is not surprising. Trump's presidency ends as it began. Without decency and without dignity. "

Edmund de Marche wrote in Fox News that Time's decision to “announce Biden and Harris for his highest honor is likely to upset Trump supporters, who are likely to see the move as the latest example of how the mainstream media is doing the Biden will assume administration for the next four years. "
And while President Trump allegedly lost the election, he has managed to achieve a number of grave, significant achievements this year that any ordinary president could easily have won the award.
"Any other US president who brokered four peace agreements between Israel and the Arab states in as many months would undoubtedly be the favorite for a Nobel Peace Prize," tweeted Eylon Levy.
For anyone who may have been skeptical of the president's role, Levy argued that any “Israeli prime minister who signed four peace agreements with Arab states in four months would be such a botch for a Nobel Peace Prize that the nominations would be closed early. ”
And if we are skeptical of Trump's personal role in this regard, any other Israeli prime minister who has concluded four peace agreements with Arab states in four months would be such a mess for a Nobel Peace Prize that the nominations would be concluded early.

German media ridicule is to be expected given that Europeans in general have little opinion of President Trump. But ignoring several successful peace agreements in the Middle East would certainly exclude the president from being named “Loser of the Year”.
Of course, this assumes that the media is broad, unbalanced and unbiased.
