United States of America President Donald Trump has discussed the qualities of Portugal star Cristiano Ronaldo with the Portuguese President Marcelo de Souza.
Trump and de Souza had a discussion about the Real Madrid superstar at the White House, according to a report in Sky Sports.
“They say he is the greatest player,” said Trump while discussing the qualities of the Real Madrid forward with De Sousa.
“So, tell me, how good a player is he? Are you impressed?”
“I’m very much impressed. He’s the best player [in] the world,” replied De Sousa.
“So will Christian [sic] ever run for president against you?” Trump asked Robelo de Sousa. “He wouldn’t win! You know he won’t win?
“Well, President, you know [there’s] something I must tell you,” replied Robelo de Sousa. “Portugal is not the United States. It’s a little different!”
Ronaldo has scored four goals at the Russia 2018 World Cup to help propel Portugal into the last 16 where they will face Uruguay on Saturday.
