Today I Learned... Megan Rapinoe Doesn't Want to Go to the White House


Megan Rapinoe, the captain of the US women's soccer team, has made it clear that she will not go to the White House if they win the World Cup. Rapinoe does not like Trump and, as a lesbian, there is a valid reason as to why she feels this way. Trump has been proven to not be the most friendly to women throughout his lifetime, especially to those of the LGBTQ+ community. The video of her saying that she would not go to the White House went viral. She was the first to kneel after Kaepernick did it in the NFL. I am proud of Rapinoe doing what she believes in as it is a free country. She just wants her voice to be heard and what she is doing is remarkable, on the field and off.
