HomePolitical NewsTrump Curse: Rapinoe Misses Game Against England, USA Still Wins Mike Vance July 3, 2019 USWNT Soccer star Megan Rapinoe has not held back when it comes to how she feels about President Trump. Is she the latest article to be hit by the Trump curse? Just last week when asked about going to the White House, Rapinoe responded, “I’m not going to the fucking White House. No. Not going to the White House. We’re not going to be invited. I doubt it." President Trump responded with a series of tweets. He actually invited her and the team to the White House, despite her remarks: Women’s soccer player, @mPinoe, just stated that she is “not going to the F...ing White House if we win.” Other than the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (please explain that I just got Criminal Justice Reform passed, Black unemployment is at the lowest level... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2019 ....in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming to the White House. I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet.... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2019 ....invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose. 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. The USA is doing GREAT! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 26, 2019 On Tuesday the US Women's soccer team took on England in the semifinals of the World Cup. After starring in the previous match, Rapinoe was held out of the match against England. The head coach said this was not for disciplinary reasons, but she did not elaborate on why Rapinoe isn't playing. Perhaps head coach Jill Ellis didn't want to reveal what kind of injury Rapinoe has. Rapinoe had two goals when the US advanced past France to the semifinals. It seemed that a team without her would struggle against England. That turned out to be not the case as the women advanced to the final.

Is this the latest example of the Trump Curse? It sure seems like it.
