Trump Elects WWE Co-Founder Linda McMahon To Head Small Business Adminstration

To help "unleash America's entrepreneurial spirit all across the country", President-elect Donald Trump appoints WWE co-founder Linda McMahon to spearhead the Small Business Administration. Trump described McMahon as "one of the country's top female executives advising businesses around the globe [who] helped grow lindatrumpWWE from a modest 13-person operation to a publicly traded global enterprise with more than 800 employees in offices worldwide. [She will be a] champion for small businesses."

McMahon, 68, previously ran for the Senate as a Republican in 2010 and 2012, but lost each race. According to CNBC, during each campaign, she supported a lower corporate tax rate and reduction in regulations. Trump has also promised the same: to cut the tax rate from 35% to 15% and ease regulations.

McMahon has also created a joint venture, Women's Leadership LIVE to promote opportunities for women in business and public service.
