The US, Canada, and Mexico are putting together a joint World Cup bid for 2026. Originally thought as a no-brainer, recently Morocco decided to put together a bid. And since then, our President can't stop putting his foot in his mouth about the bid. First, Trump stated all our NATO allies better vote for the US, which caused FIFA (the international soccer governing body) to warn Trump, since FIFA's laws dictate no politics when it comes to deciding things like World Cup locations. Although not always successful, FIFA has always attempted to be a non-political body, which has allowed for games like the US to play Iran at a World Cup without incident. Recently, Trump met with Nigerian Prime Minister Buhari and said something to the effect that African nations should support the US joint bid, and if they don't, Trump will take notice of which countries did not support us. So far, everything Trump is doing is hurting the bid. You may not care about soccer or the World Cup, but it's a huge economic boon, especially for the US where infrastructure like stadiums and hotels are already built and ready to host. The US stands to lose billions in tourist money.
