Washington sources reported that US President Donald Trump cracked a joke about Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo running for president against incumbent Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, who responded by saying that Portugal "is nothing like the US". As per report what started off as a casual conversation on Wednesday about the World Cup between Trump and Rebelo de Sousa, who is on an official visit in Washington, revealed the stark contrast between their political cultures.
Meanwhile in his first bilateral meeting with Trump, Rebelo de Sousa bantered that when Trump would talk World Cup in his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he should not forget to mention that "Portugal is still there and hopes to win." Rebelo de Sousa told Trump in the White House "Don't forget that Portugal has the best player in the world who is called Cristiano Ronaldo".
Moreover Trump recognized that Portugal indeed was "doing very well" and asked his counterpart "how good a player" Ronaldo was. Furthermore when Rebelo de Sousa said Ronaldo was "the best player in the world", Trump asked "so will Cristiano ever run for President against you?" further as his Portuguese counterpart pondered on a response, Trump assured him that "Cristiano wouldn't win, you know he won't".
