U.S. Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn declined to comment on Ivanka Trump's presence during the closing days of the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

While Vonn answered questions by a TMZ reporter about her future in skiing, whether she "hooked up" with anyone during the games (she said she didn't), and whether she got first class seats for her flight home (she did), she just shook her head when asked if she had "any thoughts on the Ivanka thing."

"I'll comment on anything else," Vonn said as she climbed into the back of a vehicle to leave the airport, TMZ reported.

Vonn made comments about President Donald Trump before the Olympics in December, saying she would compete for her country, but not the president and that she would decline to visit the White House after the Olympics if she was invited, TMZ reported.

"I take the Olympics very seriously and what they mean and what they represent, what walking under our flag means in the opening ceremony," Vonn told CNN in December. "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."

Ivanka Trump was present at the second week of the Olympics including the closing ceremonies at the request of her father and was one of many dignitaries from many countries to attend.

Two-time U.S. Olympian skier Gus Kenworthy tweeted Sunday asking why Ivanka Trump was in attendance and walking in the closing ceremony.

Eric Trump responded to the Tweet on "Fox & Friends," calling the remark "disgusting."
