Vladimir Putin tops Forbes 2016 list of most influential people – Donald Trump is in second place
Vladimir Putin has beaten Donald Trump to top Forbes magazine’s annual list of the world’s most powerful people, taking the number one spot for the third consecutive year.
The Forbes list, now in its eighth year, identifies 74 people – one for every 100 million on the planet – whose actions have the most impact across the world.
Trump’s rise to second from number 72 last year is the biggest ever on the list.
Several Trump donors are on the list as well, including Sheldon Adelson, the CEO of Las Vegas Sands, at number 72, and the Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel at 73.
The British prime minister, Theresa May, is a new addition to the list at number 13, replacing her predecessor David Cameron, who was ranked at number 8 last year.
Travis Kalanick, the CEO of Uber, who drove the company to become the richest startup in history, is new at number 64, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is the youngest person on the list, at number 10.
China is squirming and Trump hasn’t entered the White House yet. They really want to play poker against the Don and they put up the South China Sea already. This will be over quick at least.
China should be prepared to take Taiwan by force, a state-run newspaper has said, following US President-elect Donald Trump’s controversial decision to break with decades of protocol and engage with Taiwan.
The President-elect provoked uproar after he spoke directly with Taiwan’s president, the first time the countries’ leaders have talked since 1979.
The controversy intensified after he indicated his administration could exploit the four-decade long “One China Policy” in future negotiations with Beijing.
The arrangement stipulates that a nation can maintain formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan or China, but not both.
“The Chinese mainland should display its resolution to recover Taiwan by force,” an editorial in the Global Times, a communist state-owned daily said.
The threat of military action was needed to maintain peace, the editorial insisted, saying: “Peace does not belong to cowards.”
“If the Chinese mainland won’t pile on more pressure over realising reunification by using force, the chance of peaceful unification will only slip away,” it added.
