Rapinoe further praised Warren’s presidential campaign, which focuses on student debt relief, universal health care, female reproductive rights and more.
“I just think that it’s amazing,” Rapinoe told Warren. “It’s big, it’s bold. I just don’t think we can get to a better place by walking this moderate line so, I appreciate you being out front and being big and bold with that.”
“We really believe in equity, we believe in racial equity, we believe in gender equity, we believe in everyone gets a chance in this country,” Warren responded. “We can build that kind of America.”
