Trump Warns: Don’t Dare To Oppose USA World Cup Hosting Bid

United States of America President Donald Trump has warned countries that will not support a joint bid from the his country, Canada and Mexico to host the World Cup in 2026.

The United States last hosted the FIFA World Cup in 1994 but failed to qualify for the 2018 finals in Russia.

Morocco have made a bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup just as there is a joint bid from the USA, Canada and Mexico to host the Mundial.

But Morocco’s bid to host the 2026 World Cup has been backed by several countries from the Gulf region, in Africa and some part of Europe which has put the chances of a joint bid from the USA, Canada and Mexico in jeopardy.

“The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup. It would be a shame if countries that we always support were to lobby against the U.S. bid. Why should we be supporting these countries when they don’t support us (including at the United Nations)?” prolific tweeter Trump tweeted on Thursday night.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto also backed Trump’s decision on the joint bid.

“We can have differences but soccer unites us. Together we support the bid of Mexico, Canada and the USA to host the 2026 World Cup. @realDonaldTrump @JustinTrudeau.”

The vote to award the 2026 event takes place on 13 June in Moscow at world governing body FIFA’s annual congress.

FIFA have also agreed to publish the choice of each voting member for transparency.

  • Wow, I am so surprised to see Mexico and USA in the same camp.

    This is the same Mexico that Trump said he would erect a wall between his country and theirs and (to add insult to injury) he will make Mexico pay for the wall!

    I don’t think Mexicans have totally forgiven Trump (who doesn’t care) but I think this is a classic case of “making sure that politics is separated from sports”

    Nice one!

  • Really, this man has no business being in the Whitehouse.

    @realDonaldTrump…have you hard of the word “Lobby”??????

  • Morocco to host 2026 and USA to go for 2030 and Canada and Mexico  can go for 2034 . This will appease mr tup ok. Caf.

    This certified bigot now expects support from s-h-i-t-h-o-l-e countries. Not only that, but he makes Mafia-like threats. FIFA should disqualify his country just on this interference. FIFA have not hesitated to ban countries for less blatant government interference.

    Coward and bully have no place in World football. These are some of the reasons why soccer never develop in USA. Jamaica, Costa Rica , Canada and of course, Mexico do not always allow or permit USA to shine in soccer because of this ‘super power’ attitude towards the neighbor. Don’t even know that Presidents, Prime Ministers or Head of States have no business telling their National Federations how to run their federations nor vote according to their own interest. His time will soon blow off like a summer wind before he knows it. Believe me.
