The US Women’s National Soccer Team captured a record-extending fourth World Cup Sunday with a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in the championship game.

Megan Rapinoe — who has publicly feuded with President Donald Trump in the lead up to Sunday’s win — scored a penalty goal in the second half to give the Americans a 1-0 lead. It was her sixth goal in the tournament.

Both Republicans and Democrats, including first lady Melania Trump and former President Barack Obama, reacted to the win on Twitter Sunday. But still no word from the President himself — though the White House’s official account did retweet the first lady.
