Former President of the United States Donald Trump is a highly controversial figure and is known to do a lot of bizarre things from time to time. He has his fair share of haters and there is a good reason for that. Jim Ross made an interesting claim about him as well recently.

Donald Trump’s controversial comments over the years have drawn the ire of people all over the world. In fact, last year, Donald Trump caused outrage after claiming Haitian immigrants probably have AIDS.

Trump also has ties to professional wrestling, as he was involved in a feud with Vince McMahon that culminated in him shaving McMahon’s head at WrestleMania 23 in 2007.

While speaking on the Grilling JR Podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross claimed that Donald Trump was more interested in WWE Divas than the product itself, during his program in 2007.

“I don’t know if he’s a perfectionist but he’s going to perfect his image, he was certain of that. I had several conversations with him and he kind of relied on me to translate some of the wrestling-speak which I did, the best I could. He seemed to me to be more interested in the divas than the rest of the show. ‘Who’s she, what’s that one,’ that kind of thing. But I can’t say that’s a mistake, he’s a healthy red blooded American man and sometimes his little head thinks for his big head, hell, I don’t know.

He was okay Conrad, he was protective. His son, I can’t remember which one it was, was really scary, dorky. His facial expressions, like he was a secret service guy and he couldn’t beat his way out of a paper bag. I didn’t have any real issues with Trump, I had more issues with him as president than I did as a performer at WrestleMania 23. He was okay, he was in a new land and he’s not used to being in a new land, he’s used to being the emperor of the new land and he was in a different world, he was in Vince’s world and he adapted and we did well.”

Donald Trump even used The Undertaker’s WWE entrance theme during a rally earlier this year. Trump does whatever he wants to do and that is unlikely to change anytime soon.
