The United States have failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986 after losing to Trinidad & Tobago.
The US started the night impressively in the third qualifying place but ended up fifth after losing 2-1 while Panama who scored a controversial goal jumped into third place.
Panama scored a 88th-minute winner against Costa Rica to reach their first World Cup finals.
Honduras beat already-qualified group winners Mexico to also leapfrog the US and secure fourth spot in the table and a two-leg play-off against Australia.
Fans have now taken to social media, blaming Trump for the USA's failure to go to Russia.
