09 Jul Donald Trump congratulates United States World Cup triumph
The President congratulated the American team after their fourth victory, but a trip to the White House is undoubtedly
Donald Trump tweeted his congratulations to the United States due to their Women’s World Cup victory on Sunday, however if he broadcasts the team in the White House remains to be seen.
USA defeated Netherlands 2-0 to ensure it is back-to-back names on the worldwide stage, together with Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle scoring the goals in the second half.
Soon after the last whistle, USA president Trump composed on Twitter:”Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team on winning the World Cup! Great and exciting drama. America is proud of you !”
Trump was vocal throughout USA’s conduct in France since he travelled on that a Twitter rant after a video surfaced of Rapinoe which makes it clear she wouldn’t pay a visit to the White House in case her unwanted end up as winners.
He called out the 34-year old, who finished the championship winner of the Golden Boot as top goalscorer and Golden Ball for best player, for instance during the national anthem by refusing to sing or place her hands over her torso.
He wrote, in part:”Megan shouldn’t emphasise our nation, ” the White House, or our flag, particularly since so much was done for the team.”
There stays questions regarding whether the federal team will attend the White House should they get an invitation, however, head coach Jill Ellis isn’t convinced any offer will be produced.
When asked if she’d attend a party in the White House, she explained:”I have not been invited yet.”
The writer responded by stating:”I am certain that you will.” Ellis, but said with a laugh:”I would not bet on that”
A trip to the White House is conventional for successful sports teams at the USA, but Trump’s controversial presidency has witnessed a few teams buck that trend.
The Golden State Warriors of the NBA were disinvited from a trip in 2017 after celebrity player Stephen Curry stated that he was unsure whether he’d make the trip.
In all, 10 of those 20 teams to have won a championship at major US sports because Trump became president’ve turned down a trip.
A former president, however, recalled more compatible occasions.
