Battle of the Billionaires

The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday that $5m of Vince McMahon's $19.6m in unrecorded company expenses went to Trump's shuttered charity, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, in 2007 and 2009. The payments were made in years when Trump — who was a reality TV star on NBC's 'The Apprentice' at the time — made appearances at WWE events, including 2007's WrestleMania 23 "Battle of the Billionaires" and WWE's Monday night showcase "Raw," in 2009. The WWE earlier stated in a regulatory filing that the company had uncovered nearly $20m of McMahon's personal expenses.
