SPORTS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WOMEN: “Megan Rapinoe on Thursday [6-27-19] tried to quiet a brewing feud with President Trump sparked by her pledge to skip any visit by the United States women’s soccer team to the White House after the World Cup. Ms. Rapinoe said she stood by her remarks, apologizing only for using a obscenity to express them, and urged her teammates to join her in any potential boycott…Ms. Rapinoe said she was ‘not interested’ in answering any more questions on the simmering controversy, and referred reporters to her many earlier comments about Mr. Trump and his administration’s policies. She was soon smiling and joking as the conversation shifted to soccer. Her comments came in a scheduled news conference on the eve of the United States team’s highly anticipated quarterfinal against host France in Paris, and one day after President Trump criticized her in a series of Twitter posts for her declaration that she and the team would not go to the White House if they won the World Cup.”

BUDGET/EDUCATION/SPORTS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump said Monday [5-13-19] he had followed through on a decision from earlier this year to reverse course and support federal funding for the Special Olympics…The President’s budget is generally taken as a statement of administration priorities and does not reflect actual government appropriations. The initial call for cuts to Special Olympics funding was likewise considered unlikely to be passed by Congress. The shift announced by Trump would make official his statement earlier this year that the administration supported funding for the Special Olympics. Trump announced it on Twitter along with other updates to his budget, including calls for increased funding for NASA and restoration projects in the Everglades and Great Lakes. Later Monday, an administration official told CNN the White House had sent a budget amendment to congressional lawmakers.”
