Women’s World Cup 2019: Alex Morgan joins Megan Rapinoe, doesn’t sing national anthem “I have so much support around me, from the media team helping me to just the group and my family and friends and everybody,” Rapinoe said. “So we just keep it chill; we just basically – kinda just shoot the s— every day, and we’re just trying to find stuff to talk about – and that’s not what we’re talking about.”During a recent interview with the magazine Eight by Eight, Rapinoe was asked about making a potential visit to the White House. She said: “I’m not going to the f—ing White House.”Rapinoe’s comments sparked a strong response Wednesday from President Trump on Twitter.

Obviously, I’m thinking about it a little bit – we’re having to talk about it, whatever – but I’ve never been one to get in my (Twitter) mentions, so I’m not getting in them now,” she told ESPN. “Stay out of it; just keep within the team environment and the bubble.”Rapinoe went on to explain that the support she is receiving makes it easier for her to focus on the game.

We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose.

The USA is doing GREAT!”Rapinoe has since said she stands by her comments but wants to shift the attention back to the World Cup.
