Trump gives 'red card' to reporters during meeting with Infantino
FIFA President Gianni Infantino presented United States president Donald Trump with a yellow card and a red card during their meeting, Fox News reported.
The U.S. will host the World Cup in 2026 alongside neighbours Mexico and Canada. As preparations for the tournament get underway, Infantino visited the White House to discuss a plan of action with Trump.
Infantino showed Donald Trump a referee’s card book. "Referees, they have cards. Yellow cards and red. A yellow card is a warning. And when you want to kick out someone, it’s a red," he said.
Trump grabbed the red card from Infantino’s hand and, amid laughter from around the Oval Office, made to throw the card at the press gaggle in front of him.
He then dropped the card, before Infantino signalled the correct way to send someone off is to brandish the red card in the air.
