ORIGINAL: As many of you know by now, there have been some rumors on several mainstream media outlets claiming that Linda McMahon was being considered for a position in President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet. According to the reports, Linda was said to be in consideration for the Secretary of Commerce position. In an update on those rumors and reports, there is now word that Trump is going to announce investor Wilbur Ross for the job.
