Donald Trump flexes political muscle for support to 2026 WC United Bid - InsideSport

This is Donald Trump at his best – or worst! I have power, so I am the captain. The message is loud and clear. Even in the battlefield of sports.

The US President has literally warned the rivals to not to oppose USA’s United Bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup finals.

“The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid with 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)?” The US President has issued the warning in a tweeted message.

The tweet on Thursday has warned the nations to not to lobby against the US bid. Morocco is the only challenger to the united North American bid to host the prestigious FIFA World Cup Finals. USA has joined Mexico and Canada for a joint bid to host the quadrennial event.

The USA has last hosted the FIFA grand show in 1994.

Morocco’s bid has drawn support from France. African Football Confederation has also urged the European nations to back Morocco’s bid.

The FIFA will announce the hosts for the 2026 Finals on June 13 in Moscow, a day before the hosts Russia take on Saudi Arabia in the tournament opener.
