Linda McMahon is leaving Donald Trump’s administration

Linda McMahon is leaving Donald Trump’s administration

The formal Senatorial candidate will be stepping down from her position in President Donald Trump's cabinet, where she now serves as head of the Small Business Administration.

McMahon, a former World Wrestling Entertainment executive, had been in the position since February 2017.

At the SBA, McMahon has proven to be a workhorse, traveling the country to promote small business and the president's economic agenda while avoiding the scandals that have plagued several of her Cabinet colleagues.

"It has truly been the honor of a lifetime to serve our country in this Administration", she said on Twitter.

Politico reported McMahon's plan to depart the government earlier on Friday.

All three positions have so far been filled with acting replacements, not permanent ones.

McMahon joined Trump's team during his presidential transition, with officials announcing in December 2016 that she had been chosen to lead the Small Business Administration, which provides loans and other assistance to small businesses.

Mr. Trump called her a "superstar".

She lost to Democratic rival Richard Blumenthal in the 2010 midterm election by 11 percent.

McMahon told the CT Mirror past year she had "no plans" to run for office again and said she took the top job at the SBA because Trump asked for her help.

Senator Lindsey Graham has reacted to the news, saying that he was "disappointed to hear that Linda McMahon will be leaving the Small Business Administration". "She'll be an outstanding addition to the team", the person said.

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