Trump had sent the message once already on Twitter, but had mistakenly tagged the wrong Megan Rapinoe after failing to spell her name correctly. Most recently, she has been at the forefront of the women's national team's fight against gender discrimination as the team takes legal action against the United States Soccer Federation for equal pay and treatment between the men's and women's programs.
"Finish the job!" he said. In 2016, she was among the first white professional athletes to show solidarity with football player Colin Kaepernick when media first began reporting on his kneeling during the national anthem. He repeated his comments again.
"Be proud of the Flag you wear. The USA is doing GREAT!" he continued tweeting Wednesday morning.
Asked if she was "excited about going to the White House" by Eight By Eight magazine, Rapinoe responded with an almighty shrug. "L$3 ike he did when the Warriors turned him down, he'll claim they hadn't been invited in the first place".
Defying Trump, GOP-led Senate votes to block Saudi arms sales
Sir Terrance said the ruling "does not mean that licences to export arms to Saudi Arabia must immediately be suspended". Saudi ties escalated after the killing previous year of U.S. -based columnist Jamal Khashoggi by agents of the kingdom.
The tradition of inviting players to the White House has proved tricky to navigate in the age of Trump, with various high profile teams either not being invited or declining to attend.
Now 33, Rapinoe has been a central part of the USA women's team for nearly a decade, accruing over 150 caps.
Rapinoe is an openly gay athlete and has described herself as a "walking protest" of the Trump Administration.
It has been reported that Rapinoe protested during the national anthem by not singing along. Trump went on to say he loves watching women's soccer, adding: "They're really talented". He has voiced similar negative opinions about NFL players' National Anthem protests in the past, even asserting that players who made a decision to kneel "maybe shouldn't be in the country". While her teammates have had their right hand over their hearts and sung the Star Spangled Banner, Rapinoe has stood still with her lips sealed and hands by her sides. So far, in the FIFA Women's World Cup, she hasn't. The Americans have scored 24 goals in four matches and have only allowed one goal, which came on Monday versus a surging Spanish squad.
