Lindsey Vonn Representing People of US - Not Trump - At Olympic Games

Lindsey Vonn Representing People of US - Not Trump - At Olympic Games”

"I want to represent our country well", Vonn explained. "I don't think that there are a lot of people now in our government that do that", added Vonn, 33, who is eyeing her second Olympic gold medal at the South Korea Games.

Lindsey Vonn hopes to be celebrating Olympic gold come February in South Korea.

Before hanging up her skis, Vonn is also hoping to break the all-time record for World Cup victories.

Vonn said she would even refuse an invitation to the White House if she wins in Pyeongchang.

Trump's controversial presidency has seen him attack the National Football League for allowing players to protest over the racial inequality in the United States - even referring to demonstrating players as "sons of bitches".

Vonn is no fan of the current president, but her quote will likely be overanalyzed and torn apart from various political angles to fit varying political stances.

Vonn, who has overcome multiple injuries to make what could be her final Winter Olympics at the age of 33, is following in a distinguished line in taking on the President.

"Absolutely not", Vonn told MacFarlane. "No. Actually I think every United States team member is invited so no I won't go". "So no, I won't go". She revealed to CNN she would decline an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at Pyeongchang. But maybe he hasn't heard about her comments yet.

Asked by Fox News if it was a "done deal" that Team USA would compete, Nikki Haley said: "There is an open question but in the talks we have it's always about 'how do we protect the US citizens in the area?'". He now covers everything from breaking news and politics to sports and stories that defy categorization.
