The man who divided the world when he was elected president of the United States has now divided opinion once again after being crowned Time’s Person of the Year for 2016.
The president-elect edged out presidential rival Hillary Clinton, who finished in second place on the list.
The magazine described Trump on its front cover as the “president of the divided states of America” and hours after the cover was unveiled, they was forced to explain why Mr Trump was portrayed with “horns.”
Many social media users quickly decided it was a deliberate dig at the president-elect.
In the past Mr Trump has attacked Time comparing the magazine to a “free handout at a parking lot” and once declaring the magazine would “never pick me as person of the year”, so many wondered whether the “horns” were an act of revenge by the magazine.
After copping backlash on social medi,a not just for their choice of Mr Trump but for their portrayal of him, the magazine explained that in fact, at least 35 times in their history had they given a person of the year “horns”.
Others who had been depicted with horns included the Pope, George Bush and Vladimir Putin.
It appears that Mr Trump was unphased by his devil-in-disguise portrayal, and speaking to NBC about the award said he was honoured.
"It means a lot, especially me growing up reading Time magazine. I've been lucky enough to be on the cover many times this year and last year but I consider this a very, very great honour." The president-elect said.
When asked about the magazine’s controversial statement that he was the president of "the divided states of America" he said, "I'm not president yet so I didn't do anything to divide."
