In an interview with CNN, former CEO of WWE, two-time failed Senate candidate, and wife of Vince McMahon, Linda McMahon, discussed the qualities of Presidential candidate Donald Trump, who continues to look like he might actually win the Republican nomination. Here are Linda’s thoughts on the highly controversial Trump:
“I’ve known Donald for over 20 years and when I’ve been asked before I’ve said, ‘look, let me tell you what I know about him personally.’ He’s loyal. I [have] said he absolutely is a good business man, he hires smart people around him, he is very patriotic, he’s a good man and very accomplished. And I think he would make a very good president.”
This shouldn’t really shock any wrestling fans, as the McMahon family and WWE have always had close ties to Donald Trump, who has made several appearances on WWE programming and is a member of their Hall of Fame, in addition to Trump Plaza serving as the host site for two WrestleManias. The McMahon family has also donated extensively to the Trump campaign.
