U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe said that everyone she spoke with on the U.S. women’s national soccer team does not want to visit President Trump at the White House.

“Every teammate I’ve talked to specifically about it would not go,” Rapinoe said Tuesday to CNN’s Anderson Cooper regarding a potential Trump invitation. “I don’t think anyone on the team has any interest in lending the platform that we’ve worked hard to build and the things that we fight for and the way that we live our life. I don’t think we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Rapinoe previously said that she is ” not going to f—— White House.” Instead, she accepted invitations to visit Congress from both Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Former soccer star Brandi Chastain said she’s been to the White House multiple times, adding that “going to the White House is very special. It’s very historic for our country — it means a lot.”

She also said the new team needed to make its own decision about a visit, but that going was not so much a statement about the president as a statement about how they feel regarding their country.

    I think she maybe said sumthin to them and her being captain (which I’d fire her from) they figured I better go along than incite the wrath of that nutsy broad. She’s a disgrace anyways, i wouldn’t want her near my house in the first place. I’d give an invite to any one on the team that wants to show up to the Whitehouse, if they show up that means they’re better than she is or better than she’ll ever be

    I’m putting her in the same box as the pos football player that kneels. U know the one. I don’t care about either of them. She’s getting a lot of attention so I’m sure she’s happy. Whatever!

    Their loss. Check that off as something you’ll never be able to tell your children. Very selfish.

    They took the spirit of being happy about their winning a sad thing with their attitudes. An article I saw if true Rapinoe, is friends with Kapernick, if true. That explains everything.

    Being as rapass walked on the American flag as she left the field I think it is very clear how she feels about her country ! And since chucky is new to congress he probably just has not gotten around to woman’s equality !!! Little miss pink head can’t even see her is using her ! Stupid as a rock !

    Maybe Kelly O’Hara (picked up flag from under Rapione’s feet) will be the only one to go to WH. She should. I hope Cincinnati’s Rose Lavelle would go too and doesn’t follow Rapione anti America lead.
    It is very easy to follow the leader and difficult to do what is right.

    I will no longer support them or watch them, their attitude especially The Purple Hair Witch is ugly and deserve nothing from supporters.
    She is hurting the team by her actions as many Americans will not support her anti American antics.
    As far as equal pay you alone deserve absolutely Zero.
    Unfortunately what I’m seeing amongst many younger kids is this Hatred for Trump, yet they have no reasons, Well the Media says this and so and so says this, our teachers are saying this about Trump.
    The Media has done a grave injustice to this country with their wicked reporting, our schools and universities are brainwashing these kids and it’s frightening, I have never seen anything like this and unfortunately many of these kids are now eligible to Vote.
    The Woman’s Soccer Team has shown younger kids that they don’t support this President and that alone is sad as the Team has lost the respect of many Americans, but they don’t see that.

    I know the President will probably be advised to still invite them but I hope he doesn’t, they stated they don’t want to come,used foul language to describe the White House, and have totally disrespected the administration. Don’t give them any more attention. They have their parade today in New York which the media is praising, the same media that ripped Trump for having the 4th of July patriotic parade. This country is truly divided and it’s not the President who is to blame, he’s trying to bring it together but the libs and the media just won’t allow it! Shameful

    The president should still invite the team, he should take the high road. If any team members show up he should amplify they’re being there and treat them like champions. For the no shows it will be an embarrassment they will carry the rest of their lives although they may not think so now.
    The team displayed a lot of talent in winning the soccer championship they have an opportunity to inspire a lot of young people, Rapinoe is the example of un-sportsmanship which can also be a teachable moment.
