Putin and Moro Join Financial Times Iconic Decade List

The list includes 19 political figures, 22 entrepreneurs and nine representatives of culture, science, sports and entertainment.

Included politicians include French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as former US President Barack Obama.

Some characters got a short summary of why they made the list, such as Rose McGowan, the woman who started the #MeToo movement, by denouncing Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. In 2016, the movie star published a series of tweets in which she claimed to have been abused by a major producer in the industry, implying that it was Weinstein.
