The Washington Post reported that Linda McMahon donated $6 million to a SuperPAC for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. The site reports that she contributed the amount to Rebuilding America Now in August and September, which makes for about a third of the PAC’s total money raised.
The McMahon Family have been supporters and friends of Trump, and previous reports said that Linda and Vince donated $5 million between 2007 and 2009 to the Trump Foundation. Trump, of course, had a long-term association with WWE, between hosting WrestleManias and appearing in one. Linda’s most recent donation came on September 22nd for $1 million.
The site also says that Linda criticized Trump for his comments on women back in March after Trump insulted Ted Cruz’ wife, saying, “He’s not helping, certainly, to put women in the best light. Maybe he regrets them, maybe he doesn’t. I realize he punches hard when he punches back, but that’s just over the top.” However, last month, she told the AP that she is a strong Trump supporter, as he’d emerged as “a vessel that has housed this anger and this dissatisfaction” that exists throughout the country. Once you’re his friend, he is loyal to the end. He’s an incredibly loyal, loyal friend.”
