Lindsey Vonn says she doesn't want to represent Donald Trump at Olympics

Vonn added: "I want to represent our country well".

Targeting Olympic gold at February's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Vonn is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she spoke passionately about what it means to compete for the USA ski team.

Lindsey Vonn sat down with CNN to talk about the upcoming Winter Olympics which the United States may or may not end up sending athletes to for safety reasons.

As well as competing for a second Olympic gold medal in South Korea, she is attempting to break the record of 86 World Cup victories held by Ingemar Stenmark since 1989.

It looks like President Donald Trump has another outspoken critic from within the sports world.

Lynx forward Rebekkah Brunson said she will not go to the White House if the team is invited again after winning its fourth National Basketball Association title.

The 33-year-old Vonn is getting ready for the final act of a long and illustrious career. Instead, Vonn is looking to represent her fellow Americans. At the time Trump had revoked Curry's invitation to the White House via Twitter after the athlete had expressed some criticism of his rhetoric and policies. "No, I won't go".

Typically, the entire U.S. Olympic squad gets an invite to the White House after the games.

"I have no interest in going". "That's a super small form of protest, but I didn't vote for this administration".

Olympic free skier Gus Kenworthy and figure skaters Ashley Wagner, Nathan Chen and Adam Rippon have also publicly stated that they would not travel to the White House.

"I have to win to be invited".
