U.S. women's soccer star Megan Rapinoe told the world in no uncertain terms that she will not visit the White House.

However, the pugnacious Rapinoe is happy to meet Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. (Vox)

Rapinoe, who scored both her team’s goals against France in a nail-biting World Cup victory Friday, accepted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) invitation to tour the US House of Representatives following a dramatic week that saw the soccer star in President Trump’s crosshairs.



Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) also extended an invitation to the team and to Rapinoe, poking fun at the Trump administration’s championship dinner for the Clemson Tigers (at which fast food was served), writing, “No doubt the food & the company would be much better.”


The captain accepted the invitation on Twitter, writing, “Consider it done.”
