Megan Rapinoe accepts Capitol invitation from Democrats; slams Trump again

After feuding with Donald Trump, US women win World Cup

Alex Morgan pops champagne, Megan Rapinoe says "I deserve this" as US.

Rapinoe, who is openly gay, also spoke on the many critics who pushed back on her kneeling during the National Anthem, stating, "I think that taking care of others, standing up for yourself and other people if they don't have the ability to do so, is very uniquely American".

The soccer player said that it was hard in part because of backlash she faced. "Today, on behalf of all of us at U.S. Soccer, I want to say, we hear you, we believe in you, and we're committed to doing right by you".

"It came across as lip service!" she said about Cordeiro's comments. "I think when it was happening, we did keep a really tight bubble and the whole group was so supportive of me, but it did feel, like, positive in a way". It's going to make people uncomfortable.

"You look at England, France, our team, as comparison to a Brazil, who has so much potential, who could easily make it into the final given their quality, but don't quite have the support".

"You need to do better for everyone", Rapinoe said.

"Even in those moments, kneeling, those were, you know, some of the most insane personal moments that I've ever had, but that's what it takes-progress is hard".

The head of US Soccer was interrupted by boos and chants of "Equal pay!" during a ceremony for the US women's World Cup champions in Manhattan on Wednesday.

"Can you see a day where you do put your hand over your heart and sing the national anthem?" he wondered.

"Everyone is interested in going to Washington", she explained.

Cooper then asked if Rapinoe had a message for Trump.

"I don't think that we want that to be co-opted or corrupted by this administration", she said. "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.

"So yes to AOC (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez), yes to Nancy Pelosi, yes to the bipartisan Congress, yes to Chuck Schumer - yes to anyone else that wants to invite us and have a real substantive conversation, and that believes in the same things that we believe in". After winning the tournament, one of team's star players has promised that she would stick to her promise of not visiting the White House, and even had a message for the United States president.

US soccer star Megan Rapinoe has said she will meet top Democrats including Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - but repeated her insistence that she will not meet President Donald Trump.
