On the national front, a major announcement from the White House today, the Biden administration announcing it will not send official U.S. delegation to the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
Now, to be clear, U.S. athletes will still be allowed to compete, but the administration will not be sending government officials to the games.
“The Biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games, given the PR scene’s ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses. The athletes on Team USA have our full support. We will be behind them 100% as we cheer them on from home.”
