Just a month away before the huge announcement of the 2026 FIFA World Cup hosts, President Trump has warned to withdraw support on countries that do not support the joint hosting bid of the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The African country Morocco is also bidding to host the 2026 event. The North American bid has the support of 16 voting nations in South and Central America, as well as Saudi Arabia. Why should we be supporting these countries when they don't support us (including at the United Nations)?¨.
A corruption scandal related to the awarding in the 2018 and 2022 World Cups led to changes in how World Cup hosts are chosen; instead of a small committee making the decision, each of FIFA's member federations will vote - with its choice made public - at the meeting in Moscow in June.
President Donald Trump's aim to get the World Cup to the United States in 2026 continues.
Geopolitics always come into play when selecting hosts for the largest worldwide sporting events, the World Cup and the Olympics.
"As a general rule, we can not comment on specific statements in connection with the bidding process", FIFA's statement said.

NFL Draft: New Arizona QB Josh Rosen has something to say
I am who I am and I think that's why I'm very grateful to be an Arizona Cardinal because the team that picked me, they picked me". Rosen is raring to go, and he's determined to prove his doubters wrong in a bigger way than ever before.
Trump is convinced that the United States can get away with coercion and corruption, in terms of commercial and strategic benefits, that would have crushed the chances of any other bidding country.
"We hope to be the economic partner of choice for nations across the continent and all around the world", Trump said, adding that the U.S. is "respected again" when it comes to trade and commercial relations.
A person other than Trump would have considered softening the controversial sentiment that his message sent to countries mostly in Africa and the Arab world that might have felt specifically targeted by the veiled threat and Trump's self-congratulatory tone.
Samoura and Diouf both publicly rejected the allegation saying they were not family members.
Morocco also has bid to host soccer's showcase.
The host of the 2026 World Cup will be named June 13, a day before the opening match of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.
Trump's remarks on Monday came after he articulated a desire for Nigeria to remove trade barriers to allow additional USA investment in the African nation.
