On Sunday, U.S. Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy fired off a blistering tweet slamming Ivanka Trump and questioning why she is attending the Winter Olympics.
Kenworthy posted a photo of Team USA athletes, saying he was “so proud” of his teammates.
“So proud of all these people! Everybody here has worked so hard to make it to the Olympics and have the opportunity to walk in the closing ceremony!” Kenworthy, a freestyle skier, wrote on Twitter. “Well… Everyone except Ivanka. Honestly, tf is she doing here??”
The first daughter is in South Korea to attend the closing ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Ms. Trump, a senior adviser to President Trump, is leading the U.S. delegation to the ceremony on Sunday.
She said earlier this month that her trip reaffirms her father’s call for a “maximum pressure campaign” to denuclearize North Korea and to “reaffirm our bonds of friendship and partnership” with South Korea.
“We cannot have a better, or smarter person representing our country,” President Trump said of his daughter’s arrival in a tweet last week.
Kenworthy, however, thinks otherwise.
