United States Women's National Team failed to reach the final of this summer's Olympic Games women's football event after losing 1-0 to Canada in the semifinals.

But they still managed to get on the podium after beating Australia 4-3 in the losers' final on Thursday, August five.

In spite of all their efforts, former US President Donald Trump doesn't think they deserved a little accolade after tearing the leadership of the team apart with his comments.

Donald Trump speaks after US women's football team won Tokyo 2020 bronze

"If our soccer team, headed by a radical group of leftist maniacs, wasn't woke, they would have won the gold medal instead of the bronze. Woke means you lose, everything that is woke goes bad, and our soccer team certainly has. There were, however, a few patriots standing.
"Unfortunately, they need more than that respecting our country and national anthem. They should replace the 'wokesters' with patriots and start winning again. The woman with the purple hair played terribly and spends too much time thinking about radical left politics and not doing her job!"
