Joe Biden said U.S. Soccer should immediately pay men's and women's teams equally, "or else when I'm president, you can go elsewhere for World Cup funding."
Despite winning the Women's World Cup last year, the women's national team will not get paid the same as the men's team based on technicalities of contracts.
The drawing of teams, schedule of games and provisional rosters have been set for the 2020 Women's CONCACAF (The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) Olympic qualifiers, providing the path the U.S. team must take to qualify.
Research has shown the allure of collective anger, especially on social media.
Rapinoe on Tuesday explained why Team USA will not be accepting an invitation to visit the White House from President Trump.

"The country has been lost. However I am determined to go down swinging by ruining soccer for as many people as possible," Coulter tweeted on Sunday.
Rapinoe and Lavelle's goals broke a scoreless tie between the two teams that lasted well into the second half of the match and lifted the club to it's second consecutive World Cup title.
"We'd rather hear from the team of under-15-year-old boys who beat them," Coulter tweeted, including a link to an interview Team USA's Ali Kreiger gave to CNN on July 4 about the ongoing controversy surrounding the women's soccer team.
On Monday, Rapinoe was photographed wearing tape on her right hamstring during practice, suggesting she has been benched for medical reasons.
Riffing on the triumphant moment, Twitter users quickly turned the photograph into a new meme celebrating their own big and small accomplishments.
The new suit from the U.S. women's soccer team prompts tougher questions about equity in sports.
The all-time leading international scorer will hang it up after the U.S. completes its World Cup victory tour in December.
For first time, a female sports team is honored with a ticker-tape parade in Manhattan's "Canyon of Heroines."
