Trump declines to comment on women’s soccer team pay gap

President Trump on Wednesday declined to say whether members of the US women’s national soccer team should be paid the same as the men’s team. This comes as US women’s soccer team is currently engaged in a lawsuit against the US Soccer Federation claiming its members face ’purposeful gender discrimination’. The team won the World Cup title in 2015, and are favorites this year.

It's not a question of how good they are, it's a question of how many people watch the games. More people watch male soccer than female, so companies pay more for advertisements. which means the teams have more disposable income which leads to higher wages for male players. Either that or prove me wrong.

Men get 9% of the total revenue for the Men's World Cup which makes billions of dollars. Women get 13% of the total revenue for the Women's World Cup which does not make billions of dollars. I know mathematics and feminism aren't the best or friends but surely someone can point out to these ladies that 2+2 does not equal REEEEE.

Without googling it, tell me who the #1 male football player is, good, now tell me who the #1 female player is. That's why there's no "pay equity", want better pay? Tell it to your agent!

Top female footballers are not as good as top male footballers. Biology.

13-0 proves it's not a competitive league. Play against men then forever shut the fuck up.

Why should the men's team be paid as much as the women, the women's team has actually won several world cups, they draw more to the stands have higher tv ratings than the men.

Honest to god I think the US female soccer team gets more views than the male team (at least in the US). However I don’t really think they’ll get the kind of ratings the NFL, NBA, and NHL get here... We just don’t care about professional soccer, I understand he rest of the world likes it but it’s never caught on over here. (I suspect this is due to the faking injury thing that’s so prevalent in professional soccer, tends to make them look like a bunch of little bitches...)

The game makes less money because even 15 year old boys trash them repeatedly on the field. Soccer is already boring and slow, just imagine its now slower and less skillful. Make a budget product expect budget prices.

Once the women can draw the same size of audience, then they shall have equal pay. It’s not an entitlement.
