Cristiano Ronaldo will not win if he ever ran for the presidency in Portugal, US President Donald Trump has joked during a meeting at the White House.
Trump was speaking during a meeting with Portuquese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa in Washington, DC.
Trump also said Russia was doing a ‘fantastic job’ hosting the 2018 Fifa World Cup and discusses.
“Don’t forget that Portugal has the best player in the world who is called Cristiano Ronaldo,” Rebelo de Sousa responded.
Then Trump asked: “So will Cristiano ever run for president against you? Cristiano wouldn’t win, you know he won’t”.
Rebelo de Sousa responded by saying that Portugal “is nothing like the US. It is a little different”.
“President, you know — you know something — I must tell you, Portugal is not like the US. It’s a little different.”
