FIFA, soccer’s governing body, is crying foul as it pertains to Donald Trump’s travel ban, and they’re threatening to give the U.S. a red card for the 2026 World Cup.
President Trump’s travel ban, (his second due to liberal court interference of the first one), has been an important and necessary step in strengthening America’s national security in the wake of a disastrous 8 years of Barack Obama’s leadership. While the leftists in America have once again lambasted the idea, many in the U.S. are in favor of the ban, citing concerns over the growing terror problems of open-border Europe.
Now, one of the most corrupt organizations on the planet is threatening President Trump over the executive order. And no, we’re not talking about The Clinton Foundation.
“President Donald Trump’s immigration policies may be the undoing of the United States’ bid to host the 2026 World Cup, FIFA president Gianni Infantino suggested Thursday.
“A new version of an executive order from Trump bans immigration to the U.S. from six Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Syria, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen and Libya.
“‘It’s obvious when it comes to FIFA competitions as well, any team, including the supporters and officials of that team, who qualify for a World Cup need to have access to the country, otherwise there is no World Cup,’ Infantino said, per the Associated Press.
“Infantino acknowledged that FIFA has recently had to deal with other nation’s immigration restrictions. Malaysia, for example, withdrew its capital, Kuala Lumpur, as host of the FIFA Congress in May because of issues allowing in representatives from certain counties, including Israel. “
FIFA, whose massive corruption scandals span back decades, really has no place in the governing of nations. What many are also failing to realize is that Trump’s travel ban, should he be able to actually enforce it in the face of liberal legislative terrorism, is meant to be a temporary solution to keep America safe while an extreme program is developed.
