Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn, who lives in Colorado, said she would not visit the White House if she were invited following the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Vonn told CNN's "Alpine Edge" that when she competes in Pyeongchang she will not represent the USA, not President Trump at the games.

"Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president,"Vonn said. "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 isn't the only Olympian who said they would not visit the White House if they were to win gold at the upcoming Olympic games.

Free skier Gus Kenworthy and figure skaters Ashley Wagner, Nathan Chen and Adam Rippon also said they wouldn't go if invited.
