Linda McMahon spoke with members of the media following a meeting on Wednesday with President-elect Donald Trump.
"The meeting went great," McMahon told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in New York. "Anytime ... the president-elect of the United States asks you to come in for a conversation, you're happy to do that. We talked about business and entrepreneurs and creating jobs ... we had a really good conversation.”
When asked if she was offered a position in the Trump administration, McMahon told reporters to “stay tuned.”
McMahon was originally rumored to be in the running for the position of commerce secretary, a role that went to billionaire investor Wilbur Ross Jr.
As we’ve noted on numerous occasions, McMahon contributed six million dollars to the Rebuilding America Now pro-Trump super PAC and was in attendance at his victory party in New York on election night.
After stepping away from WWE, Linda McMahon ran for United States Senate twice, losing to Richard Blumenthal in 2010 and Chris Murphy in 2012. She spent $50 million on each campaign.
McMahon was critical of Trump early in his presidential campaign, calling some of the comments he made about women “over the top,” “deplorable” and “objectionable.” But she’s since served as a delegate for Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland last July and met with him at a rally in August at Sacred Heart University.
According to the Trump transition team, McMahon was one of three people Donald was scheduled to meet with on Wednesday.
