US Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe made herself a household name when she became one of the first people to join Colin Kaepernick in his protest by kneeling during the National Anthem.
On Tuesday, Rapinoe was asked about the possibility of the team going to the White House if they win the World Cup and she did not mince words when she repsonded.
“I’m not going to the fucking White House,” Rapinoe said.
“We’re not going to be invited,” said the co-captain of the dominant World Cup favorites. “[Trump] tries to avoid inviting a team that might decline. Or, like he did when the Warriors turned him down, he’ll claim they hadn’t been invited in the first place.”
You just knew Donald Trump was going to see these comments and respond, and that’s exactly what he did on Wednesday when he sent out a series of tweets firing back at Rapinoe.
Instead of rescinding a future invitation, Trump stated he is actually inviting the team win or lose.
