Schumer, Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and others in Congress invited the team to visit. Rapinoe said on CNN on Tuesday that he had accepted invitations from New York representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi and Schumer to go to Washington.
The team's co-captain said he is not interested in celebrating at the White House. It's not clear if President Donald Trump will invite the winning team to visit, and Rapinoe told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Tuesday night that no invitation had been extended.
