Maradona did not get a visa calling Trump a 'puppet'

 Argentine football legend Diego Maradona applied for a visa to come to the United States during the tenure of US President Donald Trump. But Maradona was not given a US visa at the time to speak "disrespectfully" to Trump.

Maradona applied for a visa to come to the United States in 2016, but it was rejected. Maradona needed to come here to deal with his ex-wife's case in Miami, USA. 

Maradona's lawyer, Matias Morla, spoke on a television program in Argentina about why his client did not get a visa to the United States.

Matias Morla said he advised Maradona not to comment on the United States in the visa interview.

The second question Maradona had in the visa application interview was, "What do you think about Donald Trump?"

In response, Maradona said he considered Trump a "chirolita" (puppet). The word chirolita is used trivially in the regional language of Argentina.
Earlier, on a Russian TV channel, Maradona said that Trump was a joke to him. He looks like a cartoon. Whenever he sees Trump on television, he changes channels.

Maradona was eventually denied a US visa. His lawyer then came to Miami alone to fight the case with Maradona's ex-wife Claudia Villafin.

Maradona was then working with the Al-Fujairah Company in the United Arab Emirates. He broke up with his ex-wife, Claudia Villafane, for 14 years. Maradona alleged that his ex-wife had misappropriated his money and bought seven luxury apartments in Miami.

Maradona's relations with the United States have not been good before. Maradona was banned from traveling to the United States for drug use during the 1994 World Cup.

Maradona was an outspoken critic of US imperialism. Maradona was a staunch supporter of the left movement in Latin America. He was a follower of Venezuelan revolutionary leader Hugo Chevez.

After the death of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chevez, his successor became Nicolas Maduro. Maradona declared his position in favor of Maduro, a fierce critic of the United States. He wrote on his Facebook, ‘We are followers of the late Hugo Chevez. I am ready to go to war against imperialism in the guise of a soldier if Nicolas Maduro gives instructions. '

In English, Spanish and Italian, Maradona concluded by saying, "Long live the revolution."

Maradona was very popular with a large population, including Latin Americans living in America. As news of his death spread on November 25, people in various parts of the United States were seen paying their respects and love by chanting Maradona's name.

Many Latin immigrants in the United States are hoisting the Argentine flag at half-mast in front of their homes to show their love for the hero Maradona.

The 60-year-old Argentine footballer Maradona died of a heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires on Wednesday.
