The United States Women's National Team won their second straight World Cup on Sunday, dominating the Netherlands 2-0 in the final.

After the match, Fox News cut to a live shot of correspondent Greg Palkot, who was covering the celebration live from a sports bar in Lyon, France, where the final was being played.

As Palkot began his shot, fans began chanting "F--- Trump! F--- Trump!" behind him, making for a somewhat awkward segment.

You can watch the moment below, as captured by Sara Pearl of Move On:

The chants against US President Donald Trump could stem from more than just political differences. Earlier in the tournament, Trump traded bards with USWNT superstar Megan Rapinoe.

Rapinoe was asked about a potential White House visit should the Americans go on to win the tournament, to which she responded, "I'm not going to the f------ White House."

Trump, in turn, said that Rapinoe should "win before she talks," beginning yet another Twitter feud with the sports world from his seat in the Oval Office.

While the United States women aren't expected to appear at the White House any time soon, the team did accept an invitation to tour the House of Representatives from Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
