Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn plans to represent the U.S.in the upcoming Winter Olympics, but she's insisting she has no intention of serving as an ambassador for President Donald Trump.

Ms. Vonn also said she plans to reject the traditional invitation for Team USA to visit the White House.

Vonn, who was very thoughtful about her words during the interview, told CNN how meaningful it is for her to represent her country at the Olympics, and it's not a responsibility she takes lightly.

"Well I hope to represent the people of the United States, not the president", Vonn said. It's clear that he wouldn't get 100% attendance. "I don't think that there are a lot of people now in our government that do that".
