Megan Rapinoe calls Donald Trump 'completely crazy' and calls for new president in 2020

Football star Megan Rapinoe has called Donald Trump 'completely crazy' and is hoping for a new president in 2020.

Rapinoe made the remarks as a part of her wish list for next year, which also included an Olympic title for the US football team.

Trump and the footballer have argued in the past after Rapinoe said she would refuse to go to the White House prior to the USA's World Cup win.

The president then hit back on Twitter with a series of tweets arguing with the Reign FC midfielder.

Speaking about her wish list, Rapinoe said: "An Olympic title with the United States. No national team has won a golden medal consecutively after winning the world title.

“I also wish for a new president. The current one is completely crazy. I am pleading for a radical democratic nominee who could reform the system which, clearly, is not functioning, except for those who have a lot of money. 

“We have to look after people at the bottom, including those who vote for Trump, often poor white citizens who need social protections and a job.”

The comments came after Rapinoe won the Ballon d'Or award to add to her list of awards this year.
