Soccer Star Megan Rapinoe Accepts Invitation To Hang With AOC Instead Of Trump

Megan Rapinoe accepted Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s invitation for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team to tour the House of Representatives after Rapinoe rejected an invite to the White House.

“Consider it done @AOC,” Rapinoe said Friday after the New York congresswoman extended the invite and the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team beat France 2-1 in the quarterfinal of the Women’s World Cup.

“It may not be the White House, but we’d be happy to welcome @mPinoe & the entire #USWMNT for a tour of the House of Representatives anytime they’d like,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Fellow freshman Rep. Ayanna Pressley joined the conversation, saying she wanted to be a part of the event too.

“@AOC no doubt the food & the company would be much better. I’ll bring the red velvet cake. @mPinoe your squad in?” the Massachusetts Democrat said on Twitter.

“The party’s on!” Ocasio-Cortez responded.

The invitation by the New York Democrat came after Rapinoe, 33, said, ” I’m not going to the f—ing White House.

“No f—ing way will we be invited to the White House,” she added. “[President Trump] tries to avoid inviting a team that might decline. Or, like he did when the Warriors turned him down, he’ll claim they hadn’t been invited in the first place.”

Rapinoe has referred to herself as a “walking protest when it comes to the Trump administration.”

President Trump told Rapinoe to win the World Cup before she talks about him. “I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!” Trump said.

Trump said he would invited the women’s soccer team win or lose.

The war of words was the the latest instance of hostility between Trump and a professional athlete or sports team, including the 2018 NBA champion Golden State Warriors.
