Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon is resigning from the Trump administration to chair the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action, according to a new report from Politico. 

Some Republicans are disappointed in the move.

Before accepting a role at the White House in 2016, McMahon was a professional wrestling executive. She and husband Vince co-founded the massively popular World Wrestling Entertainment Inc.

Reports suggested that Trump had been so pleased with McMahon's efforts that she was once considered as a replacement for Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.

She is expected to join Trump in Mar-a-Lago Friday with the formal announcement.
