Casino mogul Steve Wynn will serve as the new finance chairman of the Republican National Committee.
"His incredible career has been marked not just by extraordinary business success, but meaningful relationships with his employees, guests, and Americans of all backgrounds," RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said.
"He understands and shares the national enthusiasm for President [Donald] Trump, and will bring his passion for American values, his leadership skills, and his track record of outstanding results to our Finance operation."
Wynn and President Trump are now good friends after years of battling each other as casino rivals, Lifezette reported. Wynn built the Bellagio hotel, one of the most famous resorts in Las Vegas. He went on to serve as finance vice chairman of Trump's inaugural committee, the website noted.
But at one point, Wynn and the president were fighting each other in a war of words and in court. According to Lifezette, Wynn had called Trump "all hat and not cattle" in 1996. And Trump called Wynn "an underachiever."
The two battled one another in a "nasty 1999 lawsuit" that they later settled.
"I look forward to helping President Trump and his Administration make America greater again for the people who work hard every day," Wynn said of his appointment as RNC finance chairman.
