Several news outlets, including the NBC affiliate in Connecticut, are reporting that former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is being considered to be the new Secretary of Commerce under the Trump administration.
The United States Secretary of Commerce is the head of the United States Department of Commerce. As a member of the President’s Cabinet, the Secretary is tasked with promoting American businesses and industries and its mission is to foster, promote, and develop the foreign and domestic commerce.
McMahon, who ran and failed on two occasions to be elected in the Senate, is a major Trump donor and donated $6 million to support the Trump campaign for this general election.
The friendship between the McMahon family and Donald Trump dates back to around three decades and the President-elect is also a big fan of the WWE.
