The President of United States of America yesterday met with the President of Portugal at the White House. The meeting between the two went on with a brief discussion about Cristiano Ronaldo the Portuguese footballer who is considered as one of the greatest players of all times. President Sousa also managed to take a dig at President Trump while mixing the discussion of sports and politics.
President Sousa told Donald Trump that his country is doing well in the FIFA World Cup 2018 and looks forward to lifting the title for the first time ever as they have a realistic chance due to the best player in the world wearing the Portuguese jersey.
“If you visit Russia during the Championship, don’t forget Portugal is still there & hopes to win. Don’t forget we have the best player in the world called Ronaldo.”
Donald Trump replied to the statement and talked about the captain of Portugal NT, Cristiano Ronaldo who has won 5 Ballon d’Ors as of now.
“Doing very well. How good a player is Cristiano? Are you impessed?”
Marcelo Sousa claimed that he is pleased to have the best player in the world playing for his country at the biggest stage. Ronaldo recently scored a hat-trick against Spain which has elevated the expectations of the countrymen for the ultimate football glory.
“I’m very much impressed. He’s the best player in the world! So in a sense — well, I think, has been a success…. I’m sure your son knows it and…”
Trump Responded by affirming that the statement is true and his ward does indeed follow Cristiano Ronaldo who has recently lifted the third consecutive UEFA Champions League title with Real Madrid.
“He knows all about him [Cristiano Ronaldo].”
Trump tried to take a dig at Sousa by asking if Cristiano would ever run against him for the Presidency.
“Will Cristiano Ronaldo ever run for president against you? You wouldn’t win, you know.”
Sousa replied to it in a witty manner and made Donald Trump a bit embarrassed for making such a remark while claiming that even if the former Sporting Lisbon and Manchester United player would try to do so; he would not succeed.
“Mr. President, you know — you know something — I must tell you, Portugal is not like the US. It’s a little different.”
Trump replied to it with a smirk saying “That’s right, that’s right.”
