The dispute and the crosses between Megan Rapinoe and Donald Trump had been going on for several months. The U.S. player is a women’s rights activist, not only in sport, but in life, and is also one of the largest representatives of the LGBTI movement in that country. In a country where racial hatred increased, as did policies against minorities, many of them feel discriminated against and pressured, and so does the female collective, as with gay or transgender people.
Women’s soccer player, @mPinoe, just stated that she is “not going to the F… ing White House if we win.” Other than the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (please explain that I just got Criminal Justice Reform passed, Black unemployment is at the lowest level… — Donald J.

However, everything seemed to take a break with Rapinoe’s mind at the World Cup in France. The American team was looking to secure their fourth title and second in a row in France, but in the middle another chapter was opened. Prior to the quarter-finals, the athlete already assured her that in case she won, she was not going to go to the White House.Obviously, Donald Trump soon answered, speaking of disrespect to the country, but also sent her a challenge ensuring that before speaking , you should first win the World Cup… To Trump’s misfortune, the girls did and Megan’s word was revived, but this time at home.

“I wouldn’t go to the White House, and every one of the partners I specifically talked to about it wouldn’t go either. I don’t think anyone wants to advertise on something that was hard to build, the hard things we went through, and the way we live our lives. I don’t think we want that to be corrupted by this administration,” he said on local television. After his speech, Rapinoe continued against the president and was encouraged to leave him a message, pointing to the presidential motto “Make America Great Again.” “I think I’d say your message is to exclude people. You’re excluding me, people like me, people of color. You’re excluding Americans who might support you.”
“I think you should remap the message you have or the one you give about “making America big again.” I think it’s moving us to an era that wasn’t good for everyone. It could have been good for the few and maybe “America was great” to a few people, but it’s not good for enough Americans in the world and I think we have a responsibility each of us,” the player said.” You have a great responsibility as head of this country and to care about each of them and to make it better for everyone,” the world champion concluded, in a message that traveled the world.
