Morgan won’t visit White House if USWNT wins Women’s World Cup

With the start of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup coming up next week in France, the U.S. Women’s National Team continues to make noise in the media off of the pitch with the focus being against the current American Administration, specifically President Donald Trump.

Recently, it was Megan Rapinoe making headlines for her protest of the anthem, now it’s USWNT star Alex Morgan saying that if the USWNT wins this year’s Women’s World Cup, she won’t be visiting the White House to celebrate the title.

In an interview with Time Magazine, Morgan, who’s on the cover of next week’s issue of Time, talked mostly about the USWNT’s fight for their fourth Women’s World Cup (also what would be the first back-to-back titles) and for the USWNT’s fight for equal pay and treatment, but also talked briefly about her political views on President Trump and on her views about the public and others telling athletes to “stick to sports.”

“I don’t stand for a lot of things the current office stands for,” Morgan said to Time.

“We don’t have to be put in this little box. There’s the narrative that’s been said hundreds of times about any sort of athlete who’s spoken out politically. ‘Stick to sports.’ We’re much more than that, O.K.?”

Morgan mentioned that her husband, L.A. Galaxy midfielder Servando Carrasco, has family from Mexico and she mentioned her displeasure about the Administration’s policies at the border regarding the separation of migrant families.

The USWNT plays Mexico in their final tune-up friendly on Sunday before facing Thailand on June 11 in their first match in the group stage of the Women’s World Cup. The USWNT is favored to repeat as Women’s World Cup champions.


  1. Most people like me (American by “CHOICE” not by birth) and served this GREAT Nation (Combat Vet): don’t want politics, want to enjoy the beauty of football, support this country via USNT, and want forget this political circus. Morgan just needs stop being ignorant and divider, and Morgan serve our country by winning the damn Cup!

  2. You pay respect to the position not the man regardless of what Party holds the Presidency. I won’t be paying attention to them this year. Don’t want to hear about their political view points or see them disrespect the flag or the OFFICE of the President

      • Most people don’t but the president is also the head of state. When it comes to those ceremonial type duties, people generally put aside politics because he is supposed to be acting as a representative of the entire country not his political party.

      • Unfortunately this twat is too dumb to even understand who started that policy in the first place.

  3. She’s not thinking this through. Visit the white house just to give that blubbery manchild a swift kick to the nuts.
