Father of U.S. Women's World Cup star Megan Rapinoe reveals he doesn't agree with her off-pitch remarks amid her feud with Donald Trump - but he couldn't be prouder of her for standing up for herself Jim Rapinoe, 71, spoke to DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview about his daughter - the star of Team USA's Women's World Cup line-up. And he revealed the footballer has no plans to retire soon.

How would you spend a day with your hero? Espy Sanchez, a junior at Stanwood High School, meets with Seattle Reign FC’s Megan Rapinoe for the first time.

Megan Rapinoe Rocks Leather Shorts To Accept Best Team Award With U.S. Soccer Teammates At ESPYs. Fresh off of their ticker tape parade in New York City, the World Cup- winning US Women’s National Soccer Team hit up the ESPY Awards , where they took home the honor for Best Team .

It prompted a rebuke from Mr Trump, who said she should not disrespect the country, the White House, or America's flag.

Her appearance at the ESPY Awards followed a whirlwind week after winning the World Cup, in which she stared down the barrel of the camera during a CNN interview to tell Mr Trump he needed "to do better for everyone".

"Your message is excluding people. You're excluding me, you're excluding people that look like me, you're excluding people of colour, you're excluding Americans that maybe support you," she said, when asked what her message might be to the President.

"You have an incredible responsibility as the chief of this country to take care of every single person … and you need to do better for everyone."

During the team's tickertape parade in New York — where the national team was presented a key to the city — she called on Americans to "love more, hate less".

Comment: With No Argument on Substance, Critics Take Aim at U.S.’s Style There was just enough edge in Ellen White’s voice to suggest she meant it. It was only a few minutes after the United States had eliminated White’s England team from the World Cup, though that is too simple a description of what she was going through. She was still trying to process all that had happened, everything that had transpired in the previous two hours: the goal that was, and then was not; the penalty that appeared from nowhere and then went back the same way. White’s eyes were still rimmed red; her breath was still short. She kept worrying that she was going to cry, again.

"This is my charge to everyone, we have to be better. We have to love more, hate less. We got to listen more and talk less," Rapinoe said.

"We got to know that this is everybody's responsibility, every single person here, every single person who is not here, every single person who doesn't want to be here, every single person who agrees and doesn't agree. It's our responsibility to make this world a better place."

Rapinoe lauded her teammates who had been accused of arrogance during the World Cup.

She also, perhaps facetiously, ruled out a run for the presidency.

"This group is so resilient, is so tough, has such a sense of humour," she said.

"It's just so badass. There's nothing that can faze this group. We're chilling. We got tea-sippin', we got celebrations. We have pink hair and purple hair, we have tattoos and dreadlocks.

"We got white girls and black girls and everything in between. Straight girls and gay girls.

"I couldn't be more proud to be a co-captain with Carli [Lloyd] and Alex [Morgan] of this team. It's my absolute honour to lead this team out on the field.

"There's no other place that I would rather be, even in the presidential race. I'm busy, I'm sorry."
