Trump tells US women’s soccer star Rapinoe not to ‘disrespect’ country

President Donald Trump hit back at US women’s World Cup soccer star Megan Rapinoe on Wednesday after she said she’d not go the White House, telling her not to show “disrespect.”

“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear,” he tweeted.

Earlier, Rapinhoe said she would refuse an invitation to the Trump White House, adding an expletive for emphasis. The US co-captain is the latest in a string of high-profile sports stars who have feuded with the Republican president.
