The squad's 2-0 win over Netherlands in the final match on Sunday capped a World Cup campaign that attracted vast television audiences, reflecting the popularity of a United States team that has dominated women's global competition, winning a record fourth title.

"This is such a special moment for us", she told Cooper, "and to be able to sort of leverage this moment and talk about the things that we want to talk about and to celebrate like this with the leaders of our country is an incredible moment". "You're excluding me, you're excluding people that look like me, you're excluding people of color, you're excluding Americans that maybe support you".

The ceremony was capped by a memorable speech delivered by Meghan Rapinoe, the U.S.co-captain who has trailblazed on and off the pitch and won the Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards at the 2019 World Cup.

"Rapinoe may be an unlikely presidential candidate but her numbers still speak to a broader truth about Trump's standing", PPP said. The U.S. women's team has won four World Cup titles, four Olympic gold medals, has won many other tournaments and is ranked by Federation Internationale de Football Association as the No. 1 team in its Women's World Rankings.

At the rally, Rapinoe noted the diversity of the team: "We have pink hair and purple hair, we have tattoos and dreadlocks, we got white girls and black girls and everything in between".

"I would not go to the White House and every teammate I have talked with won't go", Rapinoe said while being interviewed on CNN. Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire) offered congratulations to the team for winning its fourth World Cup and said the celebrations would coincide with discussing important issues for women.

The team will then be back on the road next month to play in a five-game series of friendly worldwide matches billed as a "Victory Tour", starting with a clash against Ireland at the Pasadena Rose Bowl on August 3. "Straight girls, gay girls".

More than 50 members of Congress have written to the U.S. Soccer Federation demanding to know why, despite all their success, players on the U.S. women's team are still receiving inferior wages, working conditions, and investment. "All women should receive fair and equal pay, including our women athletes in every sport".

Wearing identical black T-shirts emblazoned with the words "World Champions" in gold letters, members of the USA squad waved to the crowds from slow-moving open-top floats. Every single person's who's not here. Back in the United States, they will continue another, more hard battle, for pay and working conditions equal to those of their male counterparts in the U.S. Soccer Federation.
