WH: No official US reps at 2022 Winter Olympics

United States President Joe Biden's administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games given China's ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang and other human rights abuses, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the report on Monday.

"The athletes on Team USA have our full support. We will be behind them 100% as we cheer them on from home. We will not be contributing to the fanfare of the games," she said at a press conference.

China should address the aforementioned issues and meet the global community's expectations, Psaki responded when asked about Beijing's threats Washington will face consequences in case it organized a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics.
