Donald Trump Tells US Women’s World Cup Captain to Win First Before She Talks

Share on Facebook

Another day, another President Trump allegation.

It seems that every day brings out a new accusation against the President, whether that’s concerning his foolish typos on social media or in regards to another world leader that he’s somehow managed to anger. Again.

The Women’s World Cup is in full swing and the US has just been sent through to the quarter-finals. The captain of the US team, Megan Rapinoe, appears to have disrespected the President and, it’s safe to say, he’s not happy about it.

And in typical Donald Trump fashion, he’s gone about the situation in the most public way possible. Read on to find out what Rapinoe said to cause this outrage.

Despite having (probably) one of the hardest jobs in the world, Donald Trump always gets a gold star for causing controversy and drama.

Numerous incidents have arisen in the past in regards to Donald Trump and women’s rights. In total, twenty-two women have come forward with sexual assault and rape accusations against the President, which is a worryingly high number of allegations to be made against the man running our country.

Yet Donald Trump was still chosen to be our President. Seems a little fishy, if you ask me…

Despite these vile accusations, Donald Trump is still going about his business (somehow) as the President of the USA; even if there have been numerous mishaps in his presidency so far.

His most recent Twitter mishap was spelling Prince Charles’ title incorrectly. He swiftly deleted the mistake, but the internet was quick to take screenshots and lose its collective mind over the hilarious error.

It is a common known fact that Trump just loves Twitter.

The President takes to Twitter daily to rant and rave about pretty much anything… or anyone. And what has Trump’s most recent target been?

On Monday, Megan Rapinoe, Captain of the US soccer team, scored two goals to send her team through to the quarter-finals.

When an athlete or a sports team win for their country, they are usually invited to visit The White House following their success. But since Trump’s election in 2016, numerous sporting teams have turned down the opportunity to visit the President, such as the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors who didn’t meet with Trump following their respective NBA championships.

Megan kneeled during the national anthem on Sunday before Seattle Reign’s NWSL game against the Chicago Red Stars in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the national anthem in protest against racial injustice. “It was a little nod to Kaepernick and everything that he’s standing for right now,” The Guardian reported that Rapinoe told American Soccer Now in regards to the incident.

Trump’s most recent controversial tweet came days after he claimed that Megan’s right to protest during the national anthem wasn’t appropriate, with him saying during an interview with The Hill, “No, I don’t think so.”

The thirty-three-year-old Captain has been a prominent voice in the issue of equal pay. Speaking to The Guardian in 2017, Megan said, “The more I’ve been able to learn about gay rights and equal pay and gender equity and racial inequality, the more that it all intersects.”

“You can’t really pick it apart. It’s all intertwined. God forbid you be a gay woman and a person of color in this country because you’d be really f*cked,” she went on to say. We can imagine how Trump feels about that…

It is unknown whether the video was filmed before, or during, the World Cup, but it features Rapinoe talking during an interview and saying boldly, “I’m not going to the f*cking White House.”

After seeing the comments, the President did what he does best, taking to Twitter to bash the US captain.

One little thing though, Mr. President… He initially tweeted the incorrect Twitter account for Rapinoe, before hastily correcting it to @meganrapino shortly afterward. Why does this not shock me?

But he went on to say that Megan should “WIN first” before “she TALKS.” Yes, the capitals were clearly extremely important.

The President has clearly taken offense to Megan’s words and he is now inviting the team regardless of their finishing place in the World Cup.

The line in his tweet saying, “Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team” is a clear reference to his own leadership. Trump never holds back over social media.

Veteran fullback, Ali Krieger, tweeted about the incident and stated that she stands with Megan, while acknowledging women who refused to be controlled by the President.

Megan is a woman who stands true to her words and her beliefs, and she’s made what she thinks of Trump pretty clear, despite him being the leader of her country. Watch the interview to see what Megan has to say on been invited to meet with the President here.
