McMahon swearing in.

Pool went back into the vice president's office a little after 3:40 p.m. Vice President Pence and Linda McMahon entered at 3:42 p.m. for her swearing in to lead the Small Business Administration.

Pence said that small businesses are "the center of American prosperity in so many ways...When you get right down to it, small businesses are the engine of economic growth, more often than not leading the way to a more prosperous America.

"They're the beating heart of our national prosperity," Pence said. "And Linda McMahon knows this better than most."

McMahon was joined by her six grandchildren, who held the bible while Pence administered the oath of office. McMahon did not offer remarks after the oath. The pool was ushered out of the room at 3:42 p.m.
