Flash Coleman Report Special Edition — Linda McMahon to Resign as SBA Administrator
It was not immediately clear when McMahon was expected to announce that she was stepping down.
McMahon, 70, and her husband, Vince McMahon, co-founded the company that became World Wrestling Entertainment. They were among then-candidate Donald Trump’s biggest fundraisers in his successful 2016 presidential campaign, donating millions to pro-Trump super PACs reportedly including Rebuilding America Now.
McMahon’s tenure has been a relative island of calm in an administration where the president has publicly broken with several of his Cabinet members, and where top officials have frequently left the White House under a cloud.
Reports Politico, “Trump administration officials have long seen McMahon as a leading contender to replace Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who has repeatedly angered the president, when he eventually steps down. Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has also been eyeing the Commerce job and McMahon’s exit better positions him to replace Ross.
