The visit comes after North America was selected to host the next 2026 World Cup.

"Soccer is a game, I guess you call it football".

"That's very good. I like that", Trump said. On Tuesday, two months after North America won the rights to host the next global soccer tournament in 2026, he received something even better - a stack of red cards. "If they don't extend, the media is going to be very boring", The Hill reported.

In July, at a Helsinki summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin, the USA president received a World Cup ball in exchange for an Alex Ovechkin jersey and hockey puck.

Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino paid US President Donald Trump a visit at the White House on Tuesday to discuss the US World Cup in 2026.

Trump thanked New England Revoution owner Robert Kraft for first bringing the World Cup bid to his attention and also praised Cordeiro, who was elected to the U.S. Soccer post in February, for being "incredibly instrumental in helping us get the World Cup".

"I like that", said a smiling Trump, whereupon Cordeiro suggested that he could use the penalty cards at "the next media session".

Mr Trump will not be in office in 2026, even if he wins a second term, but joked that perhaps his term could be extended. He later handed him pairs of yellow and red cards and then explained their meaning to him. "They'll all be out of business I guess". He originally called me and said, 'what do you think about trying to get the World Cup to the United States?' I said I'd really like it and we got Canada and Mexico involved. He further added that his that his younger son Barron Trump is one of the biggest fans of the football World Cup. Maybe they'll extend the term? Trump jokingly used the red card to kick the press out of the room.
