Timmons: President-Elect Trump Brings the Smackdown with McMahon Nomination

Washington, D.C., December 8, 2016 – National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement on the nomination of business executive Linda McMahon as administrator of the Small Business Administration:

“President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Linda McMahon is the type of ‘smackdown’ nomination manufacturers in America need. It says loudly and decisively that small businesses, and the manufacturers who are the backbone of the U.S. economy, are a top priority for President-elect Trump.

“From her entrepreneurial success at World Wrestling Entertainment to her unabashedly pro-growth U.S. Senate campaign, McMahon has shown throughout her career not only the fitness to lead but also the determination to build businesses and create jobs for all Americans. Her experience adds more muscle to President-elect Trump’s jobs team, as he tags yet another formidable champion for an economy that lifts everyone up and leaves no one behind.”
