Trump Implies He’ll Punish Nations If United States Loses Bid To Host 2026 World Cup

World Cup

In yet another childish threat against the international community, President Donald Trump literally suggested that he will punish other countries if the United States loses the bid to host the 2026 World Cup.

The World Cup is an international soccer tournament held every four years. Nations that wish to host the tournament must put together a bid and submit it to FIFA, the organization that governs the sport. Once all bids are submitted, the member nations vote on who will host.

This year, Canada, Mexico, and the United States submitted a joint bid to host the World Cup in North America. But Trump is apparently insisting that not only should the bid be accepted by FIFA, but that the tournament should be hosted by the United States…

Or else.

Trump also took a shot at the United Nations, whining that America should withdraw support from countries simply for disagreeing with us.

This sounds like the kind of threat Stormy Daniels received when she was told to keep quiet about her affair with Trump by a mystery man who threatened her baby daughter.

The thug told her:

“That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.”

Seriously, Trump’s threat sounds like something the mob would say.

And Twitter was not at all amused.

If anything, Trump just sabotaged any chance the United States had to host the World Cup. FIFA members should not bow down to threats and bullying but choose the nations based on the merits of the bid. But by making this threat, Trump just tainted the bid.

Once again, Trump humiliated America with a tweet and demonstrated that we don’t belong on the world stage, even in the sports world.
