Anti-Trump Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn just went off on critics of her anti-Trump views and claimed she is not
The Washington Times reported: Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, whose anti-Trump comments sparked backlash last year, said she will not be defeated by online bullies who say karma had a hand in her tying for sixth place in Saturday’s super-G competition in South Korea.
“That is what bullies want you to do. They want to defeat you and I am not defeated, I am the same,” Ms. Vonn said Monday at the 2018 Winter Olympics after her training run at the downhill course in Jeongseon.
“I stand by my values, and I am not going to back down,” she said. “I may not be as vocal right now with my opinions, but that doesn’t mean they have won — I haven’t changed my mind.”
Ms. Vonn made headlines in December after she told CNN that she would be representing the people of the United States in the winter games, “not the president.”
“I want to represent our country well,” she said at the time. “And I don’t think that there are a lot of people currently in our government that do that.”
Ms. Vonn also said she planned to reject the traditional invitation for Team USA to visit the White House.
