This has GOT to burn!
Fortune Magazine’s latest list of “The World 50 Greatest Leaders” is out, but Donald Trump was snubbed.
Coming in at #1 on the annual list is Chicago Cubs General Manager Theo Epstein, who built the team that in 2016 won the Cubs first World Series championship since 1908. Fair enough!
Rounding out the top five are Jack Ma, executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group; Pope Francis; Gates Foundation co-chair Melinda Gates; and Amazon’s founder and CEO, Jeff Bezos.
While Trump didn’t make the cut, many other political leaders did.
Tsai Ing-wen, president of Taiwan, comes in at No. 8; Sen. John McCain at No. 9; German Chancellor Angela Merkel at No. 10; Ohio Gov. John Kasich at No. 12; Rep. John Delaney at No. 13; former Vice President Joe Biden at No. 23; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at No. 31; Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite at No. 45; and London Mayor Sadiq Khan No. 48.
Trump’s national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, did make the list, at No. 7.
McMaster replaced Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser after Flynn’s swift resignation in the wake of reports he misled senior White House officials about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.
