After the US won the Women’s World Cup on Sunday night, a Fox News broadcast went live from a bar in France where reporter Greg Palkot was confronted by a rambunctious crowd. 

Almost immediately after Mr Palkot began his live cross to the Fox network, punters behind him began chanting their disapproval of the 45th president of the USA. 

“We are in a sports bar in Leon France,” Mr Palkot said. “F**k Trump, f**k Trump” responded the crowd. 

Palkot paused briefly before continuing the live cross.

The US team defeated the Netherlands 2-0 on Sunday, taking out the 2019 Women’s World Cup.  

It was the 8th Women’s World Cup ever, with the global popularity of tournament sparking a conservation about women’s sport and pay parity.

During the tournament, the US soccer team courted controversy when star player Megan Rapinoe said she would not be “going to the f**king White House” when Trump invited the players.

 The President then took to Twitter to say that "Megan should WIN first before she TALKS!" The player scored in the final and won the Best Player in the Tournament award.

Donald Trump did Tweet a message of congratulations after the win, despite any bad blood between himself and the US team captain.
