White House ‘to boycott Beijing Olympics’ – report
The Independent says Joining a global chorus of calls for a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, the Biden administration is likely to announce that no US government officials will be attending the global sporting event to be held in China in February, it has been reported.
The Biden administration’s pullout will send a message to China on the international stage without restricting the participation of US athletes, CNN reported, citing multiple White House sources. The move is reportedly being discussed privately by the National Security Council, which has yet to comment publicly.
An announcement of the partial boycott of the games is expected later this week.
