Both the president and the congresswoman appear in the yearly list’s “leaders” subsection.

Trump’s profile is written by former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who hails the president for his foreign policy work in relation to North Korea and and its leader, Kim Jong Un, who has met with Trump for two leadership summits, with a third meeting possibly in the works.

“President Trump deserves great credit for daring to try to personally persuade Chairman Kim to join the family of nations,” Christie wrote. “This approach holds the possibility for history-making changes on the Korean Peninsula to make us all safer.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s profile was written by Sen.

Warren describes the 2008 financial crisis, which occurred the same year Ocasio-Cortez lost her father to lung cancer, as a formative moment for the first-term Democratic representative.

“Her commitment to putting power in the hands of the people is forged in fire,” Warren writes. “Coming from a family in crisis and graduating from school with a mountain of debt, she fought back against a rigged system and emerged as a fearless leader in a movement committed to demonstrating what an economy, a planet and a government that works for everyone should look like.”

Ocasio-Cortez later thanked Warren for her remarks, saying she "couldn’t be more honored and humbled."

This week, Ocasio-Cortez praised the detailed policies Warren has proposed as part of her presidential bid, calling it "truly remarkable and transformational."

While Ocasio-Cortez and her signature Green New Deal environmental legislation are frequent targets of conservatives, Trump has rarely mentioned her directly.
