Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn on Wednesday criticized President Trump, saying she doesn't believe he represents the country well.

"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 told CNN.

She added that she hopes "to represent the people of the United States, not the president" at the upcoming Winter Olympics.

The skier also said she would not accept an invitation to the White House if she won another gold medal at next year's Winter Olympics.

The 2018 Winter Olympics begin on Feb. 9. They are being held in PyeongChang, South Korea.

Trump has criticized athletes and league executives since taking office.

In September, he rescinded an invitation to the White House to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry after Curry said he didn't want the team to visit following its NBA championship.

US Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn revealed she wouldn' t accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win gold at the 2018 Winter Olympics .

Since the start of this year's NFL season, Trump has blasted players who have knelt or raised fists during the national anthem prior to games. He has also been critical of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for allowing them to protest without punishment.

Trump last month feuded with LaVar Ball, whose son was one of three UCLA basketball players arrested on shoplifting charges in China. Trump called Ball an "ungrateful fool" for not showing Trump enough appreciation for assisting in the players' release.
