Trump administration undecided on whether U.S. will sit out Winter Olympics

Posted By on Thu, Dec 7, 2017 at 1:02 PM

Various outlets are reporting that press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders just now said that the White House is undecided on whether the United States will participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told Fox News yesterday that U.S. participation was an "open question" because of safety concerns due to escalating tensions with North Korea.

“It depends on what’s going on at the time in the country,” Haley said. “I think those are conversations that we’re going to have to have.”

But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
