The White House announced a “diplomatic boycott” today on the Winter Olympics and the Paralympics being held in China in 2022.
“The Biden Administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic games, given the PRC’s ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki declared. “The athletes on team USA have our full support. We will be behind them, 100 percent, as we cheer them on from home. We will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games.”
