Megan Rapinoe Reponds After Trump Tweets Blasting Her: ‘I Stand By the Comments I Made’

‘I would encourage my teammates to think hard about lending that platform or having that co-opted by an administration that doesn’t feel the same way and doesn’t fight for the same things that we fight for’

RAPINOE: “I think obviously entering with a lot of passion considering how much time and passion and pride we take in the platform that we have and using it for good and for leaving the game in a better place in hopefully the world and a better place. I don’t think I would want to go and I would encourage my teammates to think hard about lending that platform or having that co-opted by an administration that doesn’t feel the same way and doesn’t fight for the same things that we fight for.”
