Though it may be redundant to say, but the president did use Twitter in a fashion that may seem inappropriate.

I know, fucking shocker.

Indeed, as the vote for where a World Cup series would be held near, Trump went on Twitter to threaten, or at least imply, retaliation for any country that does not vote for the North American plan.

Yes Trump appears to be so inept and so incapable of not being an ass on Twitter he is even fucking up the US chances of hosting the largest sporting event in the world.

FIFA points to ethics rules after Trump tweets support of World Cup bid

The U.S., in a joint bid with Mexico and Canada, is battling Morocco for the rights to host the world's biggest sporting event, with a vote from all member nations set for June.


In tweeting his support of the North American bid on Thursday night, Trump also included a message for other countries that may have violated FIFA's rules.


"The U.S. has put together a STRONG bid w/ Canada & Mexico for the 2026 World Cup," the president tweeted. "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)?"
