Cowboys Owner: I 'Appreciate' President Trump's Input on Anthem Protests

Olympic gold medal skier Lindsey Vonn sparked a backlash when she said she will represent the United States at the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, in February, but not the president.

Vonn also said she would "absolutely not" accept an invitation to the White House if she were to win a gold medal.

On "Fox & Friends Weekend" this morning, fellow Olympic gold medalist Mike Eruzione said Vonn has the right to make her own decisions, but he disagrees and believes it's important to respect the presidency.

Eruzione, who captained the 1980 U.S. men's hockey team in a stunning victory over Russia in a game that has since become known as the "Miracle on Ice," said he treasured his visit to the White House after the team went on to win the gold medal.

He said that as president of the United States, Donald Trump should be respected.

"Whether you agree or disagree with his politics, he was elected by the people of this country," Eruzione said.

He added that it's a great honor to the "USA" jersey on, because you're not representing one city or community, but the entire country.
