  • The FIFA Women's World Cup U.S. soccer champions were all smiles as they returned home on Monday, touching down in full-party mode, a day after clinching their second consecutive World Cup title with a 2-0 win against the Netherlands. Co-captain Megan Rapinoe said the team isn't inclined to go to the White House if invited but did accept Senator Chuck Schumer's invitation to Congress.

    Rapinoe and Alex Morgan doubled down outside the team's New York hotel, reiterating that they "don't want to go to the White House" if invited.

    Rapinoe had courted controversy during the tournament, saying she would reject any eventual invitation to the White House drawing a Twitter blast from President Donald Trump.

    The players will be honoured with a 'ticker tape' parade on Wednesday in lower Manhattan, culminating at City Hall where they're expected to receive the Keys to the City from Mayor Bill de Blasio.

    Yeah they should get equal pay alright. Equal to the fraction of revenue they bring in compared to the men. So if they bring in 1/20th the revenue, they get paid 1/20th the amount. Perfect, I agree too!

    Great job Rapino, you just set women's soccer back to balance zero! You are such a fool. My daughters both play soccer, watch and have gone to WNSL games. No more! You have ruined it for them by bringing your politics into it. I'm sure there are many Americans who feel as we do. You are the worst spokesman, yes I said spokesman, for the women's national soccer league that could have been chosen. Revenues will go down because of you.

    Visite or Not Visite White House is Personal choice. That' s no big Deal !!! In USA... Do what you like to make you happy is the right way to do long as that won' t hurt anybody. Only Media & somebody anti-Trump think that' s a Big Deal ! This kind of News like this got their own place to stand for... Garbage !!!

    Congratulations on the win. After that, stop acting stupid. You give women a bad name and the sport as well. Rapinoe needs to shut her mouth because in a few weeks she'll be history (already is history for disrespecting our flag and anthem)

    If you are representing America, you better have respect for the people that make it possible, and whether you like Trump or not, it shouldn't be a political thing, it should be a moment in which the person who represents america, whether you like it or not, congratulates the team that represents him and the rest of the country.

    I think they're mad because you're kicking out all the illegals I think they're mad because of stock markets that are high in 401K are up. They're just a bunch of sniveling commie Bratz but if Obama was there the old they would go and he did nothing for this country.

    They don’t seem to realize that they won the trophy for the country. Not themselves or the President. None of them were there as representatives of themselves.

    Liberals. They can't do anything without it being about their pathetic views of morality. You play sports, you're good at it, that's all that can really be said about you.

    Lets see how these women who disrespect our capitol fair in the years to come ! Boycott all products and services from these disrespectful women. The capitol is a symbol of freedom ! To refuse a visit to the capitol is a slap in face on all Americans ! Remember when the black Olympians held the closed fist ? They didn't do to well ! Which is fitting and deserving of this type of behavior in a sporting event

    Your visit yes or no going to the White House will not increase employment in the USA. Chuck invitation - more like a Democratic Soccer team then the American team....

    Megan who ? Classless ! Remember. She said that women's soccer could not win without gays. She is prejudice against heterosexual women !

    They can have their own opinions. But Megan and company definitely don't have any class. They won for the USA. not for the POTUS. Don't take advantage of your world cup success and use it to attack the PPTUS. They have definitely had the MSM coolaid. Use all the negativity against a man they refuse to want to know. All of them are a nu NH of punks who just came out of their diapers.
