    Rapinoe: I 'Held Up My End of the Bargain' With Trump

    If the national team who is supposed to be representing the United States and not themselves choose not to go to the White House because they don't like who is in the Oval Office then I want them all fired and put a new team together or just disband it compeltely. DISGRACEFUL display.

    Unfortunately I think that would also be a disgrace.

    I'm glad they won. USA! USA! USA!!!!

    Glad to see there is a section of the soccer world where Americans can successfully compete.

    Now just a few weeks away from the start of the new Premier League season. Go Arsenal! :)

    I'm glad they won, but they need to be better ambassadors. It is not their job to be political.

    When representing the USA in an international tournament, I agree.

    I would not mind it one bit if the tradition of White House visits by championship teams just faded away and died.

    Trump has basically emasculated the White Correspondents Association dinner. No one misses it. I think the same would be said for these athletes that are politicizing White House visits.

    During this unfortunate era of hyper-partisanship, I agree.

    I agree for regular sports teams, but national teams should be different. They represent US.

    They want equal pay? How about no pay. They don't deserve to play for the United States.

    As long as the men's team is not paid, either.

    No "traitorous" behavior took place. I am really tired of the left and right grossly misusing that word.

    By no pay I meant they have no team contract.

    Hey, you are the one who said you did not want the Americans to win.

    This idea that the women on Team USA soccer should get the same pay as the men is ridiculous. Check out the attendance at these games. Check out the ticket prices for each gender. Check out the advertising dollars each bring in. Furthermore, they aren't doing equal work. It's not even conceivable that the women could compete with the men's team.

    Just look at the NBA vs. the WNBA. Is anyone suggesting the WNBA players should get equal pay?
