The United States women’s national team took the world stage by storm, irritating other nations with their self-righteous arrogant attitudes but they also angered millions of Americans when Captain Megan Rapinoe said some unpleasant things regarding the current political climate.
A sports journalist asked Rapinoe if she would visit President Trump’s White House if they won the World Cup and she said, “I’m not going to the f—king White House.” This caused Trump to invite them regardless if they won the whole thing or not.
And while Rapinoe continued to show her anti-American throughout the tournament by refusing to sing the National Anthem, President Trump had the last laugh even after the USWNT won the World Cup.
The United States women’s national team won the World Cup as promised and projected; as soon as they were criticized for celebrating after every goal when they beat down Thailand 13-0, the USWNT doubled down and continued to overzealously pat themselves on the back after every goal and win.
Many countries and critics said it was over-the-top. One of those countries was the United Kingdom when they defeated England in the semifinals. A U.K. newspaper, The Daily Mail, thought they would probably lose because millionaires become complacent.
But while they talked trash the entire tournament, they delivered the World Cup to America for the second consecutive championship in a row.
Rapinoe remained steadfast that she won’t accept the invite and also admitted talking to her other teammates who will do the same, but also said she hadn’t discussed it with everybody on the team yet.
However, Trump got ahead of the controversy and took the higher road.
After the USWNT won, Trump tweeted, “Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team on winning the World Cup! Great and exciting play. America is proud of you all!”
It seemed to go ignored by the entire team but they are celebrating hard as most teams do for days after winning the world championship.
That was the second time Trump took the high road too. Following Rapinoe’s divisive comments about the White House, Trump tweeted, “I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose. Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear. The USA is doing GREAT!”
Rapinoe did finish the job and if Trump keeps his word then they’re invited anyway.
The USWNT also won the 2015 World Cup and former President Barack Obama also invited the team after their win.
And guess who was there? Megan Rapinoe.
Rapinoe clearly has a problem with Trump’s White House, which shouldn’t come as a surprise because she’s also been a Colin Kaepernick sympathizer. During her Major League Soccer games, Rapinoe consistently kneeled during the National Anthem as per tradition prior to sporting events in America.
Instead of kneeling on the World Stage, Rapinoe refused to sing the National Anthem. When cameras would pan the players, the captain would keep those lips sealed.
But while the world champions seem petty in their political climate pursuit, Trump had the last laugh by taking the higher road.
Will they attend? They probably won’t because only fifty percent of championship teams show up.
