Crowd chants ‘F— Trump’ during Fox News broadcast at French sports bar
A crowd gleefully chanted “F— Trump” as a Fox News broadcaster reported the news of the U.S. women’s national team winning its fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday.
“History has just been made. We are here at a sports bar in Lyon, France,” the broadcaster says, according to a clip shared on Twitter. He then starts asking viewers to listen to what the crowd is chanting before he gets a better listen.

The U.S. beat the Netherlands 2-0, with second-half goals from Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle during the game at the Stade de Lyon in France.
Members of the team have been critical of President Trump.
Rapinoe said recently that she’d reject an invitation to the White House. President Trump shot back that “Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!”
While helping her team to victory, Rapinoe was awarded the Adidas Golden Boot, an award given to the tournament’s top scorer. She is the second American woman to ever win the award, ESPN reported.
Soccer star Ali Krieger recently criticized Trump as well, saying she refused to “respect a man that warrants no respect.”
It’s unclear if the team will be invited to or visit the White House.
Rapinoe on Twitter accepted an invitation from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) to visit the House of Representatives ahead of the team’s win.
