Skier Lindsey Vonn: I dont want to represent Trump at Olympics

Source: The Hill

Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn on Wednesday criticized President Trump, saying she doesn’t believe he represents the country well.

"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," Vonn told CNN.

She added that she hopes "to represent the people of the United States, not the president" at the upcoming Winter Olympics.

The skier also said she would not accept an invitation to the White House if she won another gold medal at next year’s Winter Olympics.

4. She is a super-fast downhill skier with lots of wins under her belt



There's a pretty good chance she'll win gold at the Olympics. I'm glad she's preemptively rubbing Trump's nose in it.

8. "hopes" to represent the people of the US? Umm, thats what Olympic athletes DO, Lindsey.

They don't raise a trump flag if you win. They raise the American flag. And even trump can't change that, even though he probably would if he could

12. Isn't that HER point --

while also responding that she will not accept an invitation to Trump's White House.

I had not really seen her speak, but now understand why neighbors of mine who have long been involved with the skiing and the Olympics were so impressed with her as a spokesperson.

10. Jesse Owens didn't let the Nazis-

intimidate him. The Olympians are our representatives not the tangerine turd's.
The Games survived Hitler.
Is the tangerine turd actually threating to keep our athletes home because Putin's dopers can't go?
The Games will survive Puttin and tRump.
