Earlier this week, a video of United States Women's National Team star Megan Rapinoe went viral.

In the video, Rapinoe was asked if she's excited about going to the White House. Rapinoe responded by saying she isn't going to the "f***ing White House," which she has stated publicly several times over the past few months.

On Wednesday morning, President Donald Trump blasted Rapinoe for her comments.

Here's what he had to say:

Women’s soccer player, Megan Rapinoe just stated that she is “not going to the White House if we win.” Other than the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (please explain that I just got Criminal Justice Reform passed, Black unemployment is at the lowest level in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming 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! We haven’t yet........invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose. Megan should never disrespect our Country, the White House, or our Flag, especially since so much has been done for her & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear. The USA is doing GREAT!

Rapinoe and the United States are set to take on France in what should be the game of the tournament so far.

The winner of the USA-France game becomes the favorite to win the Women's World Cup.

The contest is slated for Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on FOX.
