Megan Rapinoe is doubling down on her stance against U.S. President Donald Trump.
The World champion soccer player has been having an on-again, off-again battle with Trump for most of the year. It started when Rapinoe shared her distaste for the Trump Administration during a cover-shoot in January. She said that when her team won the World Cup and were invited to the White House, she would not be attending.
“I’m not going to the f—— White House,” Rapinoe said in a video clip.
Trump then responded, through a tweet of course, that Rapinoe was being rude to her country.
“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS,” Trump tweeted. “Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose.”
“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team,” Trump added. “Be proud of the Flag that you wear. The USA is doing GREAT!”
But now that Rapinoe’s team has won the World Cup, as she predicted, she’s repeating her stance against Trump.
Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Megan Rapinoe shared that she disapproves of the Trump Administrations message of exclusion.
Rapinoe also spoke on her actions of protesting the National Anthem.
