Megan Rapinoe: Trump Dragging America Back to Bigotry

Congratulations to the women’s USA soccer team has won the World Cup, but that doesn’t mean they’re headed to the White House.

Megan Rapinoe has finally responded to President Trump on Wednesday stating that POTUS is dragging America back to a time of bigotry and hate.

Read on to see what USA soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe had to say about Trump… reports Megan Rapinoe appeared on CNN with Anderson Cooper and delivered a message directed at Trump.

When it comes to the current President of the United States Megan Rapinoe said:

I would say that your message is excluding people. You’re excluding me, you’re excluding people that look like me, you’re excluding people of color, you’re excluding Americans that maybe support you.

Rapinoe and Anderson Cooper are openly gay. And the two celebs pointed out how terribly gay people in America were treated in the past.

Megan made sure to touch on that in her message to Trump

I think that we need to have a reckoning with the message that you have and what you’re saying about ‘Making America Great Again.’ I think that you’re harking back to an era that was not great for everyone — it might have been great for a few people, and maybe America is great for a few people right now, but it’s not great for enough Americans in this world.

She continued:

You have an incredible responsibility as the chief of this country to take care of every single person, and you need to do better for everyone.

Trump had criticized Rapinoe on Twitter after she said she wouldn’t be going to the “f-cking White House.”

So, Cooper asked if her teammates stood behind her?

Rapinoe said:

I would not go, and every teammate that I’ve talked to explicitly about it would not go.

I don’t think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we’ve worked so hard to build, and the things that we fight for, and the way that we live our life — I don’t think that we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration.

Megan Rapinoe states that the team is interested in meeting with ALL U.S. leaders in D.C. and WOULD accept invitations from other politicians except for Trump.

She concludes

So, yes to [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. Yes to Nancy Pelosi. Yes to the bipartisan Congress. Yes to Chuck Schumer — yes to anyone else that wants to invite us and have a real substantive conversation, and that believes in the same things that we believe in.
