Soccer star Megan Rapinoe’s World Cup goal celebration has been transformed into a meme that pokes fun at President Donald Trump.

The co-captain of the U.S. women’s national soccer team celebrated the first of two goals she netted in Friday’s 2-1 quarterfinals defeat of hosts France, which sets up a semifinals clash against England on Tuesday, with some style:

We're only 20 minutes in and this match is everything we expected and more. The hype is fully justified. 🔥#FRAUSA 🇫🇷🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/bI0LkydiE5

Rapinoe, who is gay, has refused to participate in the national anthem before games in protest of the Trump administration’s policies.

Her “Player of the Match”-winning performance against France came the same week that Trump taunted the 33-year-old midfielder on Twitter for saying she would not visit “the fucking White House” if the team won the tournament.

“I am a big fan of the American Team, and Women’s Soccer, but Megan should WIN first before she TALKS!” Trump wrote Wednesday. “Finish the job! We haven’t yet invited Megan or the team, but I am now inviting the TEAM, win or lose.”

Women’s soccer player, @mPinoe, just stated that she is “not going to the F…ing White House if we win.” Other than the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (please explain that I just got Criminal Justice Reform passed, Black unemployment is at the lowest level…

….in our Country’s history, and the poverty index is also best number EVER), leagues and teams love coming to the White House. 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 & the team. Be proud of the Flag that you wear. The USA is doing GREAT!

Tweeters suggested Rapinoe’s celebration was the perfect clapback at the president:

If Megan Rapinoe scores a third goal, reaches down into her sock and pulls out even a basic outline of a health care plan she becomes the Democratic frontrunner
