Fortune's World's Greatest Leaders snubs President Trump

Fortune Magazine released their 2017 list of the World's Greatest Leaders on Thursday -- with some big changes from 2016 and a big snub to President Donald Trump.

Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein tops the 2017 list of the 50 greatest leaders. The publication lauds the 43-year-old as "the wunderkind executive who realized he would need to grow as a leader in order to replicate in Chicago the success he'd had with the Boston Red Sox."

Epstein joined the Cubs organization in 2011 and lead them to their first championship in 108 years.

But while President Trump is nowhere on the list, some of his biggest critics are. Liberal comedian Samantha Bee, former Vice President Joe Biden, and all four organizers of the Women's March on Washington made the list. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came in at No. 31.

More conservative figures made the list too, including Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

Check out all the leaders who made the list in the gallery below:

Republican Sen. John McCain and National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster joined the list for the first time this year. The senator from Arizona has been hailed for his bipartisan appeal during such a polarizing election cycle, and McMaster, who joined the Trump administration in February, is widely respected on both sides of the aisle. McCain hailed McMaster as an "outstanding choice" for the role of national security adviser.

While Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos, who topped the 2016 list, fell to No. 5 on this year's list, Pope Francis moved up one spot from four to three.

Melinda Gates is the top ranked woman to make the list, coming in fourth. Her husband, Bill Gates, is nowhere on the list.
