Following another easy draw for FA Cup frontrunners Manchester City, Donald Trump posted a message on the official @POTUS Bebo account claiming that the FA draw was ‘rigged.’
After City secured a plum draw against League 2 side Cheltenham Town, their two closest rivals, Liverpool and Manchester United, were then drawn against each other – raising eyebrows among members of the online football community.
Trump believes that the City Football Group, headed by Sheikh Mansour, are ‘totally corrupt,’ and that ‘they’re stealing the FA Cup,’ adding that the only way to prevent future corruption would be to ‘place a travel ban on all Premier League owners coming in from Muslim countries.’
Trump also spoke about the Manchester side’s Carabao Cup dominance, claiming ‘they’ve already rigged the Caribbean Cup… five finals in six years, it’s impossible. You’d have to be stupid to believe that. It’s truly impossible.’
Despite no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of Manchester City or the FA, Trump has called on ‘true’ Manchester United and Liverpool fans to storm Wembley Stadium and ‘stop the steal.’ The FA are now said to be on high alert.
