Former U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out at Megan Rapinoe after the U.S. lost to Sweden in penalty kicks at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Trump used Rapinoe’s loss to criticize the Biden administration.
“The ‘shocking and unexpected’ loss of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team to Sweden is perfectly emblematic of what is happening to our once great nation under crooked Joe Biden,” Trump wrote on True Social on Sunday.
“Many of our players are openly hostile to the United States. No other country has behaved in such a way, not even a close one,” he wrote, adding sarcastically, “Good for you Megan, America is going to hell in a handbasket.”
In response to the message, U.S. media outlets characterized Trump as “getting back at” Rapinoe, who had been critical of him during his tenure.
The U.S. women’s soccer team denied the traditional champions a visit to the White House after winning the 2019 World Cup.메이저놀이터
At the time, Rapinoe told Trump, “Your message is excluding people who look like me. You’re excluding people of color and you’re excluding Americans who might support you.” Rapinoe is an advocate for LGTBQ+ rights. Trump hated Rapinoe for this.
