On Wednesday, President Donald Trump has accused the United States Women’s World Cup Soccer Star Regan Rapinoe of “disrespect”, after she took an oath not to visit the White House.
In the latest of his public fight with high-profile celebrities and athletes, President Trump has sent multiple posts on Twitter, alleged about Ms. Rapinoe, whose dyed and short hair has made her one of the most-identified faces of the United States Women’s Soccer team.
President Trump tweets, “Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear.”
In a similar series of Twitter posts, the United States President informs that he was inviting Regan Rapinoe to the White House, claims “I am a big fan”.
However, she “should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!” wrote President Trump.
His outburst followed by a video footage in which Ms. Rapinoe rejects the idea to visit the White House.
Such events of visiting are a longtime tradition for successful athletes and sports team but considered as a political minefield during the controversial Trump’s Presidency.
Regan Rapinoe has exclaimed in a video clip that “I’m not going to the$$$ing White House,” adding that “No. I’m not going to the White House.”
The ruling world champions have wiped away all the challenges in the World Cup and will meet the French hosts on Friday for a quarter final, which Ms. Rapinoe said that she hoped would be “wild and crazy”.
