Trump said his son was excited to hear that Infantino was coming to the White House and told him, "Dad, I'd like to meet him!"

Trump joked during the photo-op that he would not be President in 2026 but perhaps his term as could be extended.

In the past, Trump has often been a vocal critic of the media, even being credited with making the phrase "fake news" popular worldwide, and it seemed fitting the president "sent off" the group of journalists present for his meeting with Infantino. "Maybe they'll extend the term", he said to laughter, as he gestured towards media.
