TAMPA (WFLA) -Former President Trump on Thursday criticized the U.S. women’s national soccer team by saying the team would have won the gold medal and not the bronze at the Olympics if they weren’t “woke.”
In a statement, the former president claimed the team was “headed by a radical group of Leftist Maniacs, they would have won the Gold Medal instead of the Bronze.”
As part of his statement, Trump criticized Megan Rapinoe and her teammates for kneeling during the playing of the U.S. national anthem at the Tokyo Olympics.
“There were a few Patriots standing. Unfortunately, they need more than that respecting our Country and National Anthem,” Trump contended.
Trump concluded his statement by taking aim at Megan Rapinoe, calling her “the woman with the purple hair” and saying she “played terribly,” despite the fact she netted two goals and was the game’s leading scorer.
