<National Report>While Donald Trump has spent the last few weeks picking fights with the dark skinned players in the NFL, the US Men’s Soccer team has made the strongest statement yet in professional sports against the President’s legitimacy.  The team today announced a boycott of the World Cup scheduled to be held in Russia Jun 14-Jul 15th, 2018.  According to an inside source with no knowledge of US soccer, officials have announced the boycott in retaliation to Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential election.

The decision was made late this afternoon following a devastating loss to the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago.  The move marks the first time since 1986 the team will not be participating in the games.

National Report reached out to the White House for statement, however as of press time no comment has been received.

    Kudos to the U.S. soccer team for boycotting Putin’s 2018 World Cup in Russia. Putin’s authoritarian kleptocracy launched what it secretly called a campaign of “information warfare” against the U.S. elections of 2016. Please consider signing the boycott petition at MoveOn.org.

    It is the right decision to boycutt the cup. Russia is a communist nation that has no human values. why in the right mind to go there and show support and even put in danger all the players. It is a sick country with a sick leader running it.
