Group chaired by Linda McMahon donated money to U.S. Capitol rally organizers
Linda McMahon, the former WWE President and CEO who is now chairing the America First Action SuperPAC and America First Policies group for Donald Trump, has remained largely silent following the events that took place last week at the Capitol.
CNBC revealed that America First Policies donated money in the past to the group which was responsible in organizing the march last Wednesday, a march which started peacefully for Donald Trump’s speech but then turned ugly once it moved to the U.S. Capitol.
McMahon was part of Donald Trump’s cabinet as the SBA Administrator but then left to chair the SuperPAC to raise money for his re-election. Both she and her husband Vince McMahon are big Trump donors and the couple have been friends with the President for decades.
Back in November, Linda urged supporters to stand with Donald Trump for a fair count of legal votes. “Ignoring court orders and breaking state laws is the opposite. We must continue the challenge,” she wrote in a tweet.
Trump, also a WWE Hall of Famer, has his fair share of critics among WWE Superstars, and one in particular, Mick Foley, has urged Vince McMahon to “fire” Trump from the Hall of Fame.
