Former WWE executive Linda McMahon spoke with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about various topics. Here are the highlights.
On possibly running for office again:
“I have no absolutely no plans to ever run for office. I ran twice, I gave it everything I had two times. It wasn’t meant to be in Connecticut for a Republican to win, it is a very, very blue state. I gave it all I had, I really wanted to win but didn’t.”
On Donald Trump resonating with WWE fans:
“The persona of Donald Trump has resonated with them. Maybe their business isn’t growing, maybe they have kids who are graduating who can’t get jobs. All of those things that you hear I think resonate not only with some WWE fans, but across really the specter.”
On Hillary Clinton:
“First of all, I think it’s high time that we had a woman president…but, I don’t want to elect someone just because they are a woman. I want the best candidate to be elected for president…I think that any woman who is elected to the highest office in the land would clearly have positive role model effects for other young women.”
