Donald Trump has slammed the US women’s soccer team after they claimed a bronze medal at the 2020 Olympics Games. The outspoken former US President released a statement criticising the team over not winning the gold medal and even branded them “leftist maniacs”.

The tirade began: “If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of Leftist Maniacs, wasn’t woke, they would have won the Gold Medal instead of the Bronze.

“Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has.”

Trump went on: “There were, however, a few Patriots standing. Unfortunately, they need more than that respecting our Country and National Anthem,” 

“They should replace the wokesters with Patriots and start winning again. The woman with the purple hair played terribly and spends too much time thinking about Radical Left politics and not doing her job!”

The “woman with the red hair” Trump was referencing would happen to be Megan Rapinoe, one of the best players on the pitch during the bronze medal match. She scored two goals to help her country defeat Australia 4-3.

Rapinoe opened the scoring by whipping in a corner which found its way into the net, before doubling her tally with an outstanding volley.

Carli Lloyd also scored a brace in what was a very exciting back and forth match between the two sides.

This is not the first time Trump has had some choice words for the US team at this Olympics.

After they lost their opening match to Sweden, Trump penned: “Woke-ism makes you lose, ruins your mind and ruins you as a person. You become warped. You become demented.

“Earlier this week, [the women’s team] unexpectedly lost to Sweden, three to nothing, and Americans were happy about it.

Trump previously clashed with the USWNT, namely with Rapinoe, during the 2019 World Cup. 

In a video that went viral online, Ms Rapinoe stated she was “not going to the f***ing White House if her team won the tournament.

Mr Trump hit back at her comments on Twitter, saying: “I am a big fan of the American Team, and women’s soccer, but Megan should win first before she talks! 

Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the team, win or lose.

“Megan should never disrespect our country, the White House, or our flag, especially since so much has been done for her and the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear. The USA is going great!

Canada went on to win the gold medal after defeating Sweden 3-2 penalties after the match ended 1-1.
