Trump warns countries that might oppose North American World Cup bid

Trump warns countries that might oppose North American World Cup bid”

Trump met this week with France President Emmanuel Macron.

United States president Donald Trump on Thursday tweeted his support for the North American bid for the 2026 soccer World Cup and issued a veiled threat to nations that might oppose it.

Le Graet said this month that Africa, where the World Cup has only been hosted once before - in South Africa in 2010 - "has often been neglected". "Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?"

The formal announcement of the North American bid was made April 10 at a press conference at One World Observatory in the World Trade Center in NY. The FIFA Congress meets June 13 in Moscow to select the 2026 host, and a majority of the 207 voting FIFA members is needed.

Federation Internationale de Football Association recently completed a technical tour of the countries involved in both bids, with the governing body engaging in a follow-up visit to Morocco after it found deficiencies in the bid related to stadiums.

In an exclusive interview with AFP this week, he appealed to European self-interest saying: "Vote for us and we'll vote for you next time".

A February report from Sam Borden of ESPN.com noted Morocco may actually be beating the North American bid to host the event.

The North American bid has always been viewed as the front-runner to stage the tournament, thanks to its well-developed infrastructure.

While he offered his backing for the 2026 bid on Twitter, it has also been reported Trump's policies and actions have hurt the United States' cause in the race.
