One of the more stellar members of Trump’s cabinet is about to move on.
Linda McMahon, who currently heads the Small Business Administration (SBA) will be resigning her post mid-April to take over a pro-Trump Super Pac.
Unlike many of Trump’s first round of appointments, McMahon has largely stayed behind the scenes and out of headlines. For a politician, that is a good thing, because it means he or she is doing their job.
Trump echoed those sentiments about McMahon, calling her a “superstar” during her time in his administration.
While leaving Trump’s cabinet, McMahon will not be leaving the movement. She will now head the America First Action PAC.
This PAC is expected to play a major role in fundraising for Trump’s bid at re-election.
McMahon’s experience, as well as her ties to some deep pocket donors, make her a perfect fit for the job.
If the name sounds familiar, it should. Linda McMahon is the husband of Vince McMahon of WWE fame.
Linda had worked with her husband through 2009 when she left the company to run for a State Senate position in Connecticut.
During Trump’s presidential campaign, McMahon was a major booster of Trump’s.
That loyalty continued when she became a part of his administration, as she is often characterized as a loyal foot soldier for the president.
Having said that, she was not afraid to express an opposing position when she felt Trump took things too far, most notably when Trump and Cruz made their attacks personal during the 2016 election.
It has not been made clear who Trump is eyeing to fill this position, but it is probably a safe bet he will look for another highly qualified person to take on this role.
