In a new interview with ViceTV, U.S. Soccer star Megan Rapinoe called Trump a “white nationalist.”
Rapinoe said in the interview “Now, obviously, we have a white nationalist — I think — in the White House and the spewing of hate and the “othering” of the rest of the country has only led to more rift between people and more despair and more anxiety and more fear going forward.”
Rapinoe also said she would not rule out running for office herself someday, and if she did, she would run for President.
Are we ever going to see your name on a ballot?
I’m not totally shutting the door, but it seems wild.
What have you secretly fantasized about running for?
I mean, President, of course. If I’m going to do, I want the biggest, baddest post. That way, I can be the president, but then I get to pick everyone else who’s way smarter and way more qualified and way better at everything to actually do the thing. I’m not here being like ‘I’m the smartest, I should be the president.’ I’m actually like ‘I’m wholly unqualified for probably any position in government,’ but I’ve got that little bit of humility where I can be like ‘You’re smarter, you do this, you do this, you do this.’
