In a tweet, Biden remarked that the team’s “talent, heart, and advocacy for equal pay” should inspire all Americans following its World Cup victory against the Netherlands.
“.@USWNT, congratulations on the big win and thank you for the jersey! Your talent, heart, and advocacy for equal pay represents the best of America and serves as an inspiration for all. #USWNTParade,” Biden tweeted.

Biden’s tweet was sent as members of the squad appeared in New York City for a parade celebrating the win, the team’s fourth World Cup victory.
It wasn’t immediately clear if the jersey Biden displayed in the picture was new or had been given to him after the team’s victory in 2015. Former President Obama tweeted a similar image on Wednesday with his own custom-made jersey emblazoned with the same No. 19 as Biden’s.
The team last visited the White House that year, and it is unclear if it will accept an invitation by the Trump administration following statements from Megan Rapinoe, the team’s co-captain.
Rapinoe has vowed not to visit the White House, while her teammate Alex Morgan has stated that the rest of the players will discuss whether to attend as a group.
