Donald Trump has been branded “loser of the year” by one of Europe’s biggest news magazines.
Der Spiegel, one of Germany’s most widely read German-language news websites, published a long article in German about the president under the headline “Der Verlierer des Jahres,” which translates as “The Loser of the Year.”
The article, published on Thursday, criticised the president for refusing to concede the election to Biden and described him as “a man who … was never concerned with the common good, but always with one thing – himself.”
“Nothing is normal under Trump,” the article, written by the publication’s Washington bureau chief and a Berlin-based correspondent, said.
“He refuses to admit defeat. Instead, he speaks of massive electoral fraud, although there is no evidence for it. The whole thing is not surprising. Trump’s presidency ends as it began. Without decency and without dignity.”
And, rubbing salt in this wound, Time Magazine has named Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as “Person of the Year” for 2020.
The magazine announced the shortlist of candidates Thursday morning and unveiled the winner late Thursday night.
Joe Biden, President Donald Trump, frontline health care workers and Dr. Anthony Fauci, and the racial justice movement were Time’s shortlist candidates.
Time editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal wrote that this year’s selection was the first time a president-elect and vice president-elect appeared on a Person of the Year cover. Biden is also the oldest person to have been selected.
“For changing the American story, for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of division, for sharing a vision of healing in a grieving world, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are TIME’s 2020 Person of the Year,” Felsenthal wrote.
