Fortune magazine released its 2017 list of the "World's 50 Greatest Leaders" Thursday and President Donald Trump was nowhere on the list. However, some of Trump's biggest critics made it to Fortune's list. Former Vice President Joe Biden, liberal comedian Samantha Bee and all four organizers of the Women's March in Washington were a part of the list.

Topping the list was Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein. Fortune praised 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 Chicago Cubs in 2011 and led the team to their first championship in 108 years. The Cubs won their first World Series championship in 2016.

After Epstein, the top four leaders on the list were Jack Ma, executive chairman of Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group, Pope Francis, Gates Foundation Co-chair Melinda Gates, and Amazon's founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came in at No. 31. Samantha Bee, a Trump critic and executive producer of the "Full Frontal" show that airs on TBS, was placed No. 19.

Republican Sen. John McCain and Trump's National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster joined the list for the first time this year. McCain was at No. 9 and McMaster was at No. 7. German Chancellor Angela Merkel and London Mayor Sadiq Khan also made it to the list, at No. 10 and No. 48, respectively.

In 2016, Washington Post owner Jeffery P. Bezos topped the Fortune's list.

Geoffrey Colvin, Fortune's senior editor at large, commented on how the magazine came up with the list. "Remember as you scan our list that we evaluate each leader within his or her own field of endeavor. Someone leading a small organization effectively may rank above someone far more famous nudging global issues," he wrote in an article about the list in Fortune.

Trump's approval ratings have also been dipping in the recent past. Earlier this week, a Gallup tracking poll showed Trump’s approval rating falling to a record low of 37 percent. Last Wednesday, Fox News released a poll that showed his approval rating dropped five points since last month. The surveys showed that 51 percent did not approve of him while only 43 percent did.
