Rapinoe addresses Trump as US parade World Cup trophy

The team co-captain has said she's not interested in celebrating at the White House.

"I think that we need to have a reckoning with the message that you have and what you're saying about Make America Great Again". I think this team does an incredible job of taking that on our shoulders and understanding the position that we have and the platform that we have within this world. "He tweeted that Rapinoe should "[win] first before she [talks]", and the winger proceeded to score three more goals at the tournament en route to winning every possible individual and team award in front of her.

As Rapinoe pointed to the team's diversity in terms of race and sexual orientation, she said: "There has been so much contention in these past few years".

"I think that we always want to try to bring more people into the conversation", Rapinoe continued.

"Especially after the first time that I did it, you know, knowing how angry people were, but it also was hard and heavy, but I have this enormous sense of pride and responsibility in doing that. We've got to know that this is everybody's responsibility, every single person here, every single person who is not here, every single person who doesn't want to be here, every single person who agrees and doesn't agree, it's our responsibility to make this world a better place".

"I think that you are harking back to an era that was not great for everyone".

I will say, my mom had a lovely thing to say about the team's refusal to go: Just because Trump is in a position of power doesn't mean that he instantly deserves respect.

Rapinoe recently appeared on CNN where she was interviewed by Anderson Cooper.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the US World Cup stars on Rapinoe's float and later hosted the US team in a ceremony at City Hall to present them with the symbolic "Keys to the City". We gotta listen more, talk less.

Wednesday was a great day for the USA women's national team.

They celebrated their victory with a ticker tape parade in NY on Wednesday. The team was led by Megan Rapinoe who is proud of contributing to the victory. Three months before the World Cup began, members of the US women's team sued the US Soccer Federation, for gender discrimination. No, because we're all human beings, and I feel like she'd yell at me if I called her ideal, and that's what makes her so awesome. "I mean, I think it's going to take a lot of years and a tremendous amount of work by this country, but I'm absolutely hopeful for that", Rapinoe responded.
