USA star Megan Rapinoe has delivered a stirring criticism to President Donald Trump saying "your message is excluding people."
Rapinoe has spoken out against Trump previously and the star of the tournament in France - who was awarded the Golden Boot and Golden Ball - reiterated her stance when speaking about the American leader on primetime television.
When asked to give a message to Trump on CNN, Rapinoe replied:
"I think that I would say your message is excluding people. You're excluding me, you’re excluding people that look like me, you’re excluding people of colour, you’re excluding Americans that maybe support you.
"I think that we need to have a reckoning with the message that you have and what you're saying about 'making America great again.' I think you're harking back to an era that was not great for everyone. It might have been great for a few people and maybe America is great for a few people right now but it's not great for enough Americans in this world.
"I think we have a responsibility, you have an incredible responsibility as the chief of this country to take care of every single person and you need to do better for everyone."
Rapinoe previously stated that she would not be "going to the f***ing White House if USA won the World Cup, a message which prompted Trump to warn her not to "disrespect" her country and that she "should win before she talks."
USA were crowned champions of the world for a fourth time last weekend following a 2-0 win over the Netherlands. They celebrated their victory with a ticker tape parade in New York on Wednesday.
