Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning and mistakenly endorsed @meganrapino instead of Megan Rapinoe

Complaining about the American football player Megan Rapinoe in a now deleted tweet, President Trump accidentally tagged another user whose grasp was similar to the midfielder's and has now made that person a social media star.

On Tuesday morning, after the real Rapinoe had sworn, Trump did not complain to & # 39; the white house & # 39; to go if her team wins the World Cup.

Furious about the snuff, Trump wrote in a stumbling block: & # 39; Ladies soccer player, @meganrapino, just said they & # 39; does not go to the White House if we win & # 39 ;. Unlike the NBA, which now refuses to call owners, owners (explain that I only passed Criminal Justice Reform, Black unemployment is at the lowest level …)

However, the account he had tagged was not a football player's, but a 21-year-old student instead.

Her name is not Megan Rapinoe or even Megan Rapino, as her handle would suggest, and she had not used the account for years before the president tweeted, she said.

The photo in her bio is of the retired French player, Laure Boulleau.

Instead of escaping the avalanche of attention she received, she embraced it with a sense of humor and even started trolling the president at the end of the day.

She chose not to share her real name for fear of being attacked by the president's fans, she said Yahoo Sports how she walked out of a 7-Eleven in Pennsylvania when her phone constantly buzzed.

She opened it to see that Trump had tweeted her and her heart sank, she said, thinking to herself: & # 39; What did I do? & # 39;

She instinctively responded to the President in support of Rapinoe and wrote: & # 39; And she was right when she said that I had to cry a river, and that is not even her opinion. & # 39;

Since then, the student has been bombarded with abuse by Trump loyalists and has collected more than 3,000 followers.

But she enjoyed the attention and seemed to take her notoriety, no matter how short, for what it was.

& # 39; My answers are gone right now, & # 39; said a tweet.

& # 39; ngl (jargon not to lie) thought it was a joke when I saw that Donald tweeted me, but here we are (sic) & # 39; another said.

Will the real Megan Rapinoe please stand up? The football player did not respond to the Twitter feed

She then excitedly joked about the President getting her last 1,000 followers, and then took the opportunity to tweet the real Rapinoe and ask for recognition.

& # 39; If I consider this my chance to make @mPinoe stand out, I am not ashamed & & # 39 ;, she wrote in one.

In a later message she joked: & # 39; Mom is coming to pick me up, old men are attacking me & # 39 ;.

And to one of Trump's fans who tweeted her that she had made him sick, apparently still assuming she was the real football star, she replied: & # 39; you need to see a doctor for that. & # 39;

After realizing his mistake, Trump removed the original post and then sent a new tweet with the real Rapinoe on it.

His original victim grabbed it and wrote: & # 39; 2nd times the charm. & # 39;

All day long she changed her screen name to a single & # 39;. & # 39; to & # 39; not megan rapinoe & # 39; to & # 39; maybe megan rapinoe & # 39 ;.
