I represent USA, not Donald Trump: Skiist hottie Lindsey Vonn

American skiing champ Lindsey says she won’t even accept an invite to the White House if she succeeds at February’s
Winter Olympics in South Korea

American skiing champion Lindsey Vonn has criticised US President Donald Trump. Ahead of February’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn stressed that she was representing her countrymen at the Games and not the president. “Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn, who is in St Moritz, Switzerland, told CNN’s Alpine Edge.

“I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony. I want to represent our country well. I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that,” added Vonn, 33, who is eyeing her second Olympic gold medal at the South Korea Games.

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

“I have to win to be invited. No, actually, I think every US team member is invited, so no, I won’t go. Absolutely not,” she said.
Trump courted controversy recently for criticising some of America’s top NFL and NBA stars for kneeling down as a mark of protest during the national anthem.
