Megan Rapinoe Rules Out Possible White House Visit

(Undated)  --  U.S. Women's National Soccer Team co-captain and University of Portland grad Megan Rapinoe is making it very clear she would not attend a ceremonial trip to the White House.  Talking to soccer magazine Eight by Eight, Rapinoe said she would not go if the team won the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup.  The soccer star then said she doubts the team would be invited.  This follows President Trump criticizing Rapinoe's silent protest of the national anthem during a World Cup game this week, calling it "inappropriate."  She had previously told Yahoo Sports that she was a "walking protest" of the Trump administration because of her personal beliefs.
