Top U.S. Olympian slams Trump; wants to represent the people, ‘not the president’

One of the biggest stars who will compete for the United States in February’s Winter Olympics used her platform to take a shot at President Donald Trump this week.

In a CNN interview that aired Thursday, skier Lindsey Vonn said she wants to represent the people of the United States well, which apparently excludes the president.

“Well, I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,” Vonn said.

The location of the 2018 Winter Olympics, Pyeongchang, South Korea, has created some controversy.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Mission to the U.N. clarified Thursday, saying that the United States “looks forward to participating in the Winter Olympics” and that the U.S. is working with South Korea to secure the venues.
