Now, Rapinoe and her teammates have received a much more compelling invitation to Washington, D.C. thanks to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
France scored a goal back late in the match, but thanks to an impressive performance by goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher and the USA defence, the Americans held on to win 2-1. Rapinoe then buried a shot from the edge of the six-yard box midway through the second half to extend her team's lead to 2-0. The Americans and Lionesses will square off at 3 p.m. on July 2, and you'll be able to watch the action on FOX.
Several Twitter users picked up on the change, with some confused about the account's appearance and the handle in Rapinoe's bio.
'Can y'all run for president together?' another user said.
An old video surfaced last week, too, which featured Rapinoe saying, "I'm not going to the f--ing White House", if they were to win the World Cup.
Rapinoe rejected the idea of a White House visit in an interview with Eight By Eight.
Harris also managed to throw in a dig at Trump, noting that she promises "we won't make you eat cold fast food in front of reporters".Читайте также: Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton back on IL despite clean MRI
Many saw her performance as a strong response to Mr Trump's tweets about her on Wednesday. "Like with the Flag that you just put on". The USA is doing GREAT!'
"We haven't yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose", he said.
That drew a pair of angry tweets from Trump, who said that "Megan should WIN first before she TALKS!"
Rapinoe, who came out as gay in 2012, told NBC Sports: 'Being a gay American, I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties'.
"I stand by the comments I made about not wanting to go to the White House, with the exception of the expletive - my mom would be very upset about that", Rapinoe said.
Rapinoe refused to concede and instead doubled down on her earlier comments on June 27.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
