Donald Trump was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013. The President has had a long history with pro wrestling, most famously appearing at Wrestlemania 23 in 2007. As part of the "Battle of the Billionaires" he ended up shaving Vince McMahon's head alongside Stone Cold Steve Austin and Bobby Lashley.
In 2009, he appeared as part of a storyline where he (in kayfabe) bought WWE Raw, before selling it back to Vince soon after.
He also made appearances at WrestleManias IV and V, which were billed as being from Trump Towers, though actually took place at the nearby Atlantic City Convention Hall.
In 2016, following his election to office, Trump appointed Vince's wife Linda McMahon to his Cabinet, as Administrator of the Small Business Administration.
In 2017, Vince, Linda, their children Stephanie and Shane, and Triple H all visited Trump in the Oval Office.

Mr President, we have a testing problem. Can you please take 33 seconds out of your busy day to watch my video?
