Former WWE CEO Nominated as Small Business Administrator

Donald Trump has nominated Linda McMahon, the former director of the World Wrestling Entertainment company, as the new director of the Small Business Administration.

In his announcement, Trump said McMahon has a "tremendous background and is widely recognized as one of the country’s top female executives advising businesses around the globe."

McMahon dabbled in politics in 2010 with an (unsuccessful) run for a U.S. Senate seat in Connecticut. 

In accepting the position as SBA chief, McMahon said she was eager to get started on doing what she does best: creating jobs.
