    Time Magazine revealed its list of the "100 Most Influential People in the World," Thursday. Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, U.S. President Donald Trump and Pope Francis are among those on the list.

    The Trump family dominated Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World" list, "Today" reported.

    President Donald Trump is on the list for the second time, and so are two of his closest advisers: daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. Also on the list are Pope Francis, actor Ryan Reynolds, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles. The list includes 40 women. 

    Each influential person is introduced in a profile written by another notable figure. Sen. John McCain, for example, introduced FBI Director James Comey.

    Time Editor-in-Chief Nancy Gibbs said this year's list is more complicated than it has been in the past: "These past 12 months have sharpened our edges as political debates in the U.S. and Europe, the Middle East and Asia, turned jagged and primal and seem almost perfectly designed to divide us more deeply."
