Former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is planning to announce her resignation as head of Donald Trump’s Small Business Administration, but she’ll continue to work with The President.
Politico reports Linda will rejoin the private sector in order to play a pivotal role in fundraising for President Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
The 70-year-old — who launched two unsuccessful bids for the US Senate in 2010 and 2012 — assumed her current position in February of 2017.
At the time of her nomination, Trump touted Linda’s accomplishments by mentioning that she “helped grow WWE from a modest 13-person operation to a publicly traded global enterprise with more than 800 employees in offices worldwide.”
UPDATE: Linda has released a statement confirming her resignation.
It has truly been the honor of a lifetime to serve our country in this Administration. The opportunity to lead the SBA in supporting America’s small businesses has been immensely rewarding. @SBAgov @WhiteHouse pic.twitter.com/JnRvNehbVi
