Rapinoe said earlier this week in a video by soccer publication Eight by Eight that she’s “not going to the f---ing White House” if the U.S. women's national team wins the World Cup.

Trump hit back at Rapinoe, tweeting that “leagues and teams love coming to the White House” and that he is a “big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer,” but warned that “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,” he tweeted.

Rapinoe reaffirmed her remarks Thursday, saying she “stand[s] by the comments that I made about not wanting to go to the White House.”
