President Trump taunted World Cup soccer player Megan Rapinoe after she said she would refuse to go to the White House if the team won.

“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS!” Trump wrote. “Finish the job!”

Rapinoe expressed her views about a possible White House visit in an interview with Eight by Eight magazine.

“I’m not going to the fucking White House,” Rapinoe said in a video interview with Eight by Eight:

Trump said he would invite the team to the White House, despite Rapinoe’s crass comment.

“We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose,” he said.

Trump described her comments as disrespectful to the entire country.

“Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team,” he wrote. “Be proud of the Flag that you wear”:
