Megan Rapinoe accepts House of Representatives invite after controversial White House comment

Megan Rapinoe

Megan Rapinoe lead US National Women team’s charge with 2 goals in their Quaterfinal win over hosts France. But unfortunately she is on the news for the wrong reasons. She recently spoke in disrespect when asked about her visit to White House. “I won’t visit the f***ing White House even if invite”, she said.

Ocasio-Cortez invited Megan Rapinoe to House of Representatives

Megan Rapinoe though will still be in Washington for another reason. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. invited her to The House of Representatives after her stunning performance that knocked hosts France out of the current 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.

Megan Rapinoe was swift to accept this offer. She tweeted her reply within just 2 hours.

“Consider it done @AOC,” Rapinoe wrote.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass joined Cortez in inviting Rapinoe to Washington. She tweeted soon after her reply.

Rapinoe’s conflict with Trump

The invitation comes soon after Megan Rapinoe clashed with Donald Trump after her controversial comments on White House. Defending champs have been on an unbeaten run in the tournament and so she was asked about prospective invitation to the White House.

She also said that Donald Trump doesn’t invite people who won’t accept and if his invitation gets rejected he denies he sent it.

Donald Trump wasn’t too pleased with the Co Captan’s comments and replied in a series of tweets. He asked Megan Rapinoe to be respectful of the country she’s representing. He also called for gratefulness towards all the country has given her and invited her to The White House.

“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 wrote on his twitter handle.
