Linda McMahon has given her first public comments about Vince McMahon's retirement from WWE.

At an event for the America First Policy Institute, Linda fended off questions from a reporter about Vince McMahon's retirement. When the subject was brought up, Linda attempted to shut down the line of questioning.

"I'm not gonna talk about Vince and WWE. I'm here to talk about AFPI," Linda said.

The reporter continued to ask about the issue, asking Linda what her thoughts were on Vince deciding to retire.

"Well, you know what? He'll just be deciding on how he's gonna spend his free time," Linda said. "I think that's a good thing."

The reporter then asked Linda if she was concerned about Vince being investigated for his alleged hush money agreements.

 "No," Linda said. "Come on. I told you I'm here to talk about AFPI."

Amid a sexual misconduct scandal, Vince McMahon announced his retirement from WWE on July 22. Vince's retirement came after the Wall Street Journal reported that he had agreed to pay more than $12 million over the past 16 years to "suppress allegations of sexual misconduct and infidelity." All four women were formerly affiliated with WWE.

Linda McMahon is the chair of the America First Policy Institute, a political organization that's aligned with Donald Trump. Linda resigned from Trump's cabinet in March 2019 to become the chair of the America First Action super PAC.
