But now the United States came back with their second straight World Cup title, it turns out that the USWNT is going to Washington D.C. to be honored for their victory. But instead of taking the traditional trip to the White House, they’ll be going to Congress.
According to the Associated Press, Rapinoe -- one of the team’s co-captains -- has accepted an invitation from Congress, including Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Schumer told the AP that he is looking forward to arranging a time that “these inspiring women can come to the nation’s capital.”
