So, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to invite the team to another house: The House of Representatives.
“It may not be the White House, but we’d be happy to welcome @mPinoe & the entire #USWMNT for a tour of the House of Representatives anytime they’d like,” the New York congresswoman wrote.
Rapinoe accepted the invitation tweeting: “Consider it done @AOC”
Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts got into the conversation and said she would bring red velvet cake for the occasion.
The team will play England in the semifinal on July 2.
