A crowd gleefully chanted “F— Trump” as a Fox News broadcaster reported the news of the U.S. Women’s national team winning their fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday.
“History has just been made. We are here at a sports bar in Lyon, France,” the broadcaster says, according to a clip shared on Twitter. He then almost asks viewers to listen to what the crowd is chanting, before getting a better listen.

The U.S. team beat the Netherlands 2-0, with second-half goals from Megan Rapinoe and Christen Press during the game at Stade de Lyon in France.

Rapinoe said she’d reject an invitation to the White House. President Trump shot back that “Megan should WIN first before she TALKS! Finish the job!”
While helping her team to victory, Rapinoe was awarded the Adidas Golden Boot, an award given to the top scoring player in the tournament. She is the second American woman to ever win the award, ESPN reports.
Soccer star Ali Krieger recently criticized Trump, as well, saying she refused to “respect a man that warrants no respect,” regarding Trump.
It’s unclear if the team will be invited or attend a trip to the White House.
