Pelosi is really adamant about this…

Whether the U.S. Women’s National Team visits the White House, remains something of an open question. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi seems determined to make sure the champions of the World Cup reach Capitol Hill.

In a tweet on Monday, Pelosi praised the USWNT’ “strength, unity, & patriotism,” and invited them to Capitol Hill as a team, or individually.

President Trump had invited the USWNT to the White House win or lose, however, the president seemed noncommittal about the invite after the World Cup finale.

“We haven’t really thought about it,” Trump said Sunday after the U.S. beat the Netherlands 2-0. “We’ll look at that.”

However, when it comes to women’s squad, AOC has the upper hand in creating competition between Speaker Pelosi and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. At the House of Representatives in early June, the outspoken New York representative welcomed USWNT co-captain Megan Rapinoe.

Rapinoe accepted the invite.
