Weeks ago, a photo of Clifton was posted on social media showing her next to a sign that read, “Will You Marry Me?” and a caption that read, “I obviously said yes!” The couple has been photographed frequently together in the past, too. But, as Delle Donne explained, respect for Clifton’s privacy contributed to them not formally discussing their relationship before now. “I decided I’m not at all going to hide anything,” Delle Donne said. She added that her Sky teammates have known about the relationship. “They know Amanda,” Delle Donne said. “She’s always around. It’s nothing crazy.” Delle Donne is now at least the third member of the U.S. Olympic women’s basketball team to announce her same-sex marriage. In May 2015, center Brittney Griner was married to fellow WNBA player Glory Johnson (though Griner filed for divorce less than a month later). Two months earlier, Seimone Augustus married aspiring actress LaTaya Varnier — but not before Team USA coach Geno Auriemma took time during a three-day national team camp to give Augustus some impromptu dancing lessons for her wedding. Sue Bird, who is also a member of Team USA, said she’s “definitely proud” of her Olympic teammate and pleased that Delle Donne’s disclosure isn’t as big of a deal as it could have been in years past.

More than six weeks after banning Post reporters due to suspicions of bias, Trump agreed to meet with some of its reporters backstage at a campaign rally in Ashburn, Va., on Tuesday, the paper confirmed to CNNMoney. The meeting didn’t actually happen — Steven Ginsberg, the Post’s senior politics editor, said that it fell apart due to a disagreement about the ground rules. (“We had requested what we thought was on the record visit with Mr. Trump about the presidential campaign,” Ginsberg said in an email.) But Trump did give an interview to at least one Post reporter, resulting in a report about Trump’s refusal to endorse fellow Republicans Paul Ryan and John McCain in their upcoming primary races. “This is not the first time Donald Trump has done an interview with a Post reporter since the ban was announced (Chris Cillizza spoke with him in July) and we haven’t received word of any change,” Ginsberg said. “There has been no change,” Hope Hicks, a Trump spokesperson, said in an email. Trump had said at a rally Monday that the Post “has gotten a little bit better lately,” and some Post employees have been able to secure credentials to events. Columnist Dana Milbank received a credential for Tuesday’s rally in Ashburn, and a Post photographer was invited to a campaign event following the Republican National Convention last month. Since the ban was imposed in mid-June, Post reporters have not been allowed into the press area at campaign rallies. They have been able to attend as private citizens. Trump announced the ban in a June 13 Facebook post.visit this site right here
