Love more, hate less, chants World Cup champ Rapinoe, snubbing White House

The US Women's National Team's victory tour will continue with a ticker tape parade in New York City on Wednesday.

Now, it's the women of 2019's turn.

The last ticker tape parade was held in July 2015 after the women' national team defeated Japan 5-2 to win the World Cup, according the Alliance's records.

A party atmosphere filled lower Manhattan as marching bands and women on motorcycles escorted floats carrying the players, coaches and staff up Broadway to a City Hall rally along a route dubbed "the Canyon of Heroes". In 1924, the U.S. Olympic team became the first sports team to earn a ticker-tape parade, when it returned, overwhelmingly victorious, from that year's summer Olympics in Paris. "I just want to be like them", she said.

On Sunday, the day of the US women's national team's victory, a team spokeswoman released a statement that read: "At this moment of tremendous pride for America, the sad equation remains all too clear, and Americans won't stand for it anymore". The tape has since been replaced with paper confetti. If passed, Manchin's bill would deny any and all federal funds provided to host cities; participating local and state organizations; the U.S. Soccer Federation, Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), and Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

The Department of Sanitation said it will have 350 workers assigned to parade cleanup with trucks, backpack blowers and brooms at their disposal.

The American women beat the Netherlands on Sunday to win their fourth World Cup. Because as this team has taught us, being the greatest isn't just about how you play on the field.

It looks like everyone is having a good time.

The win drew congratulatory messages from Michelle Obama, Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Tennis star Serena Williams and current US President Donald Trump. "It might've been great for a few people".

When asked if she would appear as a guest at the White House if invited by Trump, she answered with an expletive. Rapinoe has said she wouldn't be going to the White House.

Girls in soccer uniforms accompanied the team as ABC broadcaster Robin Roberts introduced each one at a ceremony at New York's City Hall.

"NEW YORK: To be back home to celebrate with you all will be an honor", she wrote.

Several members of the national team filed a lawsuit in March against the U.S. Soccer Federation, claiming there is institutionalized gender discrimination between the women's and the men's game. Even more impressive, the women's soccer team has reached the finals five of the eight times the World Cup tournament has been held.

"The clear unequitable pay between the U.S. men's and women's soccer teams is unacceptable and I'm glad the U.S. Women's Soccer Team's latest victory is causing public outcry", the senator said in a statement posted to his website. The men's French team got $38 million for winning previous year.
