Megan Rapinoe has hit out at Donald Trump for inciting a “white supremacist mob” in last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol.
The U.S. women’s national team (USWNT) star was asked about her thoughts in a call with reporters and wasn’t shy about calling out the mob and President Donald Trump.
“This was about white supremacy and holding up white supremacy,” Rapinoe told a media teleconference, according to The Guardian’s Bryan Armen Graham.
She added, “Hopefully (it’s) the final straw for so many people to really understand the reason that we’re here is because we never have actually had a reckoning with what our country really is. This is America. Make no mistake about it. I think we showed very much our true colors. This is not the first time we’ve seen a murderous mob like that. Unleashing a white supremacy mob is nothing new to America as people of color, Black and brown, know very well.”
