“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 wrote on his twitter page.

The US previously hosted the World Cup in 1994.

Trump’s comments could breach FIFA’s rules on political interference regarding World Cup bids.

Football’s world governing body promised a “fair, objective and transparent” decision process last month, following suggestions by Moroccan bid chairman, Moulay Hafid Elalamy that FIFA was privately backing the North American proposal.

Morocco’s bid is expected to receive strong backing from Fifa’s African and Middle East countries.
