Biden confirms U.S. will participate in 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics

The Biden administration confirmed on Monday that the U.S. will participate in the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games despite China’s long-standing human rights violations in the communist nation.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed U.S. involvement during Monday’s daily briefing.

“We believe U.S. athletes, people who have been training, giving up a lot of blood, sweat, and tears preparing for these Olympics should be able to go and compete, and we look forward to cheering for them from home,” she said.

Instead of boycotting the Games, the U.S. will instead participate in a diplomatic boycott. This simply means no American governmental leaders will attend the Olympics.

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney applauded the move.

Others argue the boycott does not go far enough against a country leading genocide against people in its own nation. Again, the U.S. seems to be leading from weakness under the leadership of the current president.
