Lindsey Vonn said in a new interview that she will be representing her home country, not President Donald Trump, when she competes at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
“I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” the ski champion, 33, told CNN correspondent Christina MacFarlane on Thursday, December 7. “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 there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
She even confirmed that if she wins an Olympic medal she will decline the offer to visit the White House!
This reaction angered many Americans and one of them was Conservative Young Gun Tomi Lahren!
Tomi Lahren had a strong reaction after Olympic gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn became the latest athlete to speak out against President Donald Trump.
In an interview with CNN, Vonn said she will represent the United States at the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, in February, but not the president.
When asked if she would accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win a gold medal, Vonn said, “Absolutely not.”
“What about the Americans who are Trump supporters that voted for President Donald Trump?” Lahren said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” “Are we not Americans? Does she not want to represent us?”
But it seems that was not the end of the problems for Vonn because today she suffered the ultimate karma after bashing President Trump she suffered a horrifying injury!
Vonn finished a World Cup super-G in extreme pain Saturday and was treated by race doctors for a back injury.
The American star crossed the finish line in obvious distress, in 24th place and 1.56 seconds behind the winner, and slumped to the snow. She compressed her back on the fifth gate, according to U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
Vonn stayed in the finished house to be treated, and one hour later limped slowly into a waiting car to be driven from the St. Moritz course.
