The reigning champion US team has been on a tear so far in the FIFA Women's World Cup.
The US face host nation France in the quarter-finals on Friday evening. She did so in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick, who was a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when he became the first athlete and NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem before games in 2016 in protest against racial injustice and police brutality in the US.
Trump easily could have pointed out that Rapinoe is a co-captain of the American team and that she has no right to such a title while she disrespects the country she represents. "But I can't do nothing when there are people in this country who have to deal with this kind of thing", said the Reign FC player.
After Rapinoe's protest, the U.S. Soccer Federation introduced a rule requiring players to "stand respectfully" during the anthem.
"I love watching women's soccer", Trump beamed.

Still: Trump still praised the USA women's soccer team, which defeated Spain 2-1 in the Women's World Cup on Monday and will play France in the next round on Friday. "I'll probably never sing the national anthem again", she also said during the interview.
The US national team advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Cup after defeating Spain 2-1 Monday afternoon.
She said she was a "walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration". I think the National Football League does it. She said the idea that someone like her can don the USA kit is "kind of a good "F you" to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don't look exactly like him".
"I know that when you have the great stars like [Portugal's Cristiano] Ronaldo and some of these stars ... that get paid a lot of money, but they draw hundreds of thousands of people. And I will do whatever it takes to be part of the solution". "I'd have to look at it".
The president, however, did offer praise for the soccer team after their win over Spain Monday in the first round of the knockout stage of the Women's World Cup.
