Leftists’ hatred of Donald Trump proves they’re more concerned with their ideology than what’s good for the American people.
The economy is booming and unemployment is at an all-time low, but liberals like Bill Maher invite a recession to help get rid of Trump, Americans be damned.
But now Trump just secured a major victory that liberals can’t deny.
Barack Obama lobbied hard to bring the World Cup to the United States in 2022. He did his best to persuade former FIFA chairman Sepp Blatter to strongly consider America as a host nation.
Obama’s plan failed, as the 2022 World Cup was awarded to Qatar.
The United States lost a bid to a country that’s using veritable slave labor to build up its infrastructure in time to be a credible host for the games.
But only two years into his presidency, Trump delivered what Obama couldn’t. The World Cup.
Trump recently broadcasted the fantastic news that the most popular worldwide sporting event will be coming to North America in 2026. Canada and Mexico will also host World Cup matches, but the bulk of the games will be played in America.
Trump was able to exert pressure and get the job done, displaying his knack for closing big deals.
Two months ago, Trump tweeted:
The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ 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)?
Trump’s tactics worked, and the United States will be graced with a huge influx of revenue. The 1994 World Cup was set in America, and it generated approximately $4 billion in revenue.
When accounting for inflation, the 2026 games should easily pour over $10 billion into the U.S. economy.
The games provide a huge boost to tourism: flights, hotels, restaurants, bars, shops, tour guides, etc.
There are also ticket sales, increased employment to meet demand, and sponsorship, not to mention the buzz the games will create.
An estimated 3.4 billion people watch the World Cup, which means nearly half the world’s population will be tuned in to the North American games in 2026. That type of impact is incalculable.
And if there’s one thing Trump will make sure of, it’s that the United States will put on a grand show for the world to see.
Liberals have decried Trump’s rhetoric and brash personality, but what they don’t understand is those traits are often what get deals done.
Trump couldn’t have risen to the top of the New York real estate market without knowing how to talk with powerful people and get things accomplished.
Trump has brought that same practicality to the Oval Office, and the results two years into his presidency have been encouraging.
Perhaps the next issue for Trump to tackle is the status of American soccer. After showing promise under coach Jürgen Klinsmann, Men’s U.S. Soccer fired the coach and re-hired previous coach Bruce Arena.
Arena resigned after the United States failed to qualify for the 2018 games, an embarrassment they hadn’t suffered since 1986.
Hopefully, by 2026, the U.S. team will be able to put on a good show as the host nation.
Trump said there would be so much winning during his administration, and so far he’s delivering on his promise.
