Megan Rapinoe reveals her dad voted for Donald Trump

There's definitely been some dust-ups", she said, adding, "I'm very close to my family.

At the same time, Rapinoe feels she and her teammates on the national team are part of a larger cultural, social and political movement that extends beyond this summer.

"I'm very similar to how they are, even though I think my dad voted for Trump and I'll say: 'I don't get it. I'm always saying: 'You guys should really be Democrats!"

Rapinoe shared that there have been "major blow-ups" between her and her family but she asserted that they were still close.

Squaring her parents' more traditionally conservative beliefs with her own progressive ones, including what Rapinoe describes as an easy acceptance of her own sexuality, is something the native Californian has been navigating for more than a decade.

"We are everything he loves with the exception that we're powerful, strong women", Rapinoe told The Guardian. "I wouldn't say that we're anti-authority, but when there's a person who is abusing their power or manipulating people, whether it's a teacher when I was younger or Donald Trump now, there's nothing that fires me up and grinds my gears more".

Police blame dissident republicans for Northern Ireland bomb attack
The source said that the officers were lucky not to have been killed or seriously injured when a bomb exploded. Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar blasted those responsible for the attack.

That statement prompted a series of tweets from President Trump, who said Rapinoe "should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag".

The soccer star has repeatedly used her platform to protest against social injustice and inequality in the US, including refusing to sing along to the national anthem during the 2019 World Cup.

"At one point, my mom was telling all her work friends: "Oh, my daughters" - because my sister is gay, too - 'Oh, the twins are gay, blah blah blah, '" she told the Guardian. "Meanwhile, their kids were dropping out of high school and having drug problems and doing all these insane things, and they were like: 'You don't have any problems! All your kids are awesome, they're doing sport and getting their college paid for and doing great, '" she said. She wouldn't let it continue to be an issue, though. How are you simultaneously as proud as punch of me, and watching Fox News all the time, [who are doing] takedowns of your daughter?' That's why I'm like: "'You guys need to go to therapy'".

The soccer star said it actually was not a struggle to come out during college.

She also understands why she and the USA national team's activism gets the attention it does. We had some tense times, but it came down to, "You're either in this or not, '" Rapinoe said.

Despite her political differences with her parents, Rapinoe does not back down from defending what she believes in - and loving them. It's not like, 'Ugh, I'm from a conservative town, and I never talk to them anymore.' I talk to my parents all the time, every day.
