Did Trump put North America's 2026 World Cup bid in jeopardy?

For the second time in a week, President Donald Trump on Monday urged other countries to support the North American bid to host the 2026 World Cup and again implied there might be consequences for those who did not.

Kevin Kouame, a part-time coach and Business Administration student at SCC said that the joint bid of the U.S, Canada and Mexico should win the World Cup because they has a lot of resource and infrastructure.

As Reuters noted, those regulations warn against competing government's participating in activities "that may adversely affect the fairness of the Bidding Procedure and/or may cause any undue influence on the outcome of the Bidding Procedure". Likewise, France plans to back Morocco, while Russian Federation has said it will also vote for the North African nation's bid. "Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?" "Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?"

The president's call for support doesn't jibe with his comments made in January, when he reportedly remarked: "Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?" in a discussion with lawmakers about protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador, and Africa.

Archeologist have been exploring the dig site known as "Huanchaquito-Las Llamas" since 2011 when locals found human remains there. The ancient Chimu people occupied the third largest city in Peru , with approximately 800,000 inhabitants.

The vote to decide what bid organizes the 2026 World Cup will take place on June 13, just before the start of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"As a general rule, we can not comment on specific statements in connection with the bidding process", FIFA's statement said. Some American and foreign outlets even reported that Trump's tweet is essentially counterproductive; resorting to extortion may have put the North American World Cup prospects in jeopardy.

"From the beginning, we have received strong support from the Canadian, Mexican and United States governments".

Some analysts say Trump's heavy-handed intervention could tilt support away from North American bid.

The veteran French gaffer hopes his final game against Manchester United as Arsenal boss tomorrow will not be ruined by a bust-up. It would be only the second time Wenger has failed to secure a top-four finish in his tenure at Arsenal .

But despite the furor that followed his World Cup message, Trump appears convinced that extortion is an effective-if not the sole-means to gather support for America's joint bid with Canada and Mexico.

The North American bid is bolstered by a fleet of gleaming new National Football League stadiums built over the past two decades that are suitable for global matches, which puts it in step with the cost-conscious, infrastructure-ready leanings of the day.

The North African country with long coastlines along the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea previously bid for the World Cup in 1994, 1998, 2006 and 2010.

The last time the US hosted the World Cup was in 1994.
