Linda McMahon is leaving the Small Business Administration

Linda McMahon is leaving the Small Business Administration

Linda McMahon, head of the Small Business Administration, said Friday she is leaving the Trump administration.

Trump, without announcing McMahon's departure plans, said he would appear with her at his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Palm Beach, Florida, at 4 p.m. on March 29.

McMahon, who joined Trump in speaking to reporters, thanked the president and discussed the work she did for the Small Business Administration. "She did a terrific job for President Trump and small businesses all over the country".

Along with her husband, Vince, McMahon ran the hugely successful World Wrestling Entertainment company, negotiating television rights and merchandising contracts.

She contributed more than $6 million to a Trump-supporting super PAC, and WWE has been one of the biggest donors to the Trump Foundation over the years.

McMahon previously held the title of CEO of WWE, which she gave up in 2009 to run for US Senate.

McMahon, 70, has yet to make a formal announcement regarding her resignation or reveal her plans for the next stage of her career.

McMahon told The Connecticut Mirror that she identifies with the entrepreneurs she tries to help.

McMahon is one of the original members of Trump's cabinet, serving as the head of the Small Business Administration since she was confirmed in February 2017.

A longtime friend of Trump's, McMahon donated about $7 billion to a political action committee that supported Trumps' candidacy for the White House.

This is a developing story.
