Sarah Huckabee Sanders: 'No Decision' on If USA Athletes Will Attend Olympics

  • US trip to Olympics uncertain amid North Korea threat, Haley says

Nikki Haley hinted on Wednesday that America's Olympic athletes might not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics because of a potential volatile situation with North Korea.

This year's Winter Olympics will likely be over before the exercises begin, but some in South Korea have called for the military exercises to be canceled this year anyway.

She added: "The protection of Americans is our top priority and we are engaged with the South Koreans and other partner nations to secure the venues".

Asked to clarify Ms Haley's comments on Friday, Ms Sanders initially said that the final decision on attendance would be made closer to the Games. We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives. "Each federation together with the Sports Ministry will make a separate decision".

The rogue nation called out high-ranking USA officials, including CIA Director Mike Pompeo, saying their "bellicose remarks" were revealing an intent to go to war, according to comments attributed to an unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman.

"I think those are conversations that we're going to have to have", she added.


U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley made the remarks when she was asked by Fox News on Wednesday if the U.S. has made a final decision to compete in Pyeongchang. "But what have we always said?" The games - scheduled for February 9-25 in Pyeonchang, South Korea - come amid increasing hostility between Washington and South Korea's northern neighbor.

"What we will do is make sure we're taking every precaution possible to make sure that they're safe and to know everything that's going on around them".

Ms Haley told Fox & Friends that the Trump administration would "find out the best way" to protect American athletes if they attended.

In the new expansion to Ubisoft's skiing and snowboarding sim, you can participate in events in 2018 Winter Olympics, with events including the halfpipe, slalom, and ski jump.

Olympic and NBC officials on Thursday also responded to Haley's comments.

"Should the unthinkable happen and there's conflict between nations, that's not an issue for the U.S. Olympic Committee to get involved in", USOC chief executive Scott Blackmun said at the time.
