Trump, 2020 field congratulate U.S. women’s soccer team on World Cup win

Reported by Washington Times:

President Trump congratulated the U.S. women’s national soccer team for their record fourth World Cup title on Sunday.

The U.S. beat the Netherlands, 2-0, in Lyon, France.

“Congratulations to the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team on winning the World Cup! Great and exciting play. America is proud of you all!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

Mr. Trump clashed in recent days with Megan Rapinoe, a key star on the team who said the team is not “going to the f–ing White House” after the tournament.

The president hit back on Twitter at the time, saying he is a fan of the women’s team but they should “finish the job” before Ms. Rapinoe talks smack about him.



It’s unclear what will happen next, but the White House did send an all-female delegation to cheer on the women in the final.

Ms. Rapinoe scored the team’s first goal on Sunday — a penalty— before Rose Lavelle sealed it with a second strike.

First Lady Melania Trump was among those beating the president to the punch in offering congratulations. Many of the 2020 contenders on the Democratic side also jumped at the chance to revel in the win.

“Woo-hoo! Congratulations to the @USWNT on their World Cup win. Your persistence on and off the field inspires girls and women everywhere to dream big, fight hard, and win,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, tweeted.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer tweeted, asking if women can get equal pay — the men’s team didn’t even qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia — while former President Barack Obama extolled the U.S. women’s multitude of titles.

The U.S. also won the women’s World Cup in 1991, 1999 and 2015.

“Yes! Fourth star. Back to back,” Mr. Obama tweeted. “Congrats to the record breakers on the @USWNT, an incredible team that’s always pushing themselves — and the rest of us — to be even better. Love this team.”

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
