UN Ambassador Nikki Haley made an appearance on Fox News stating that the US Olympic team’s participation in Pyeongchang is still up in the air.
Given Amb @nikkihaley comments about 2018 Olympics in S Korea, worth remembering that @POTUS committed to sending a high-level delegation last week. See last line of 11/30 WH call readout: pic.twitter.com/hk58FzvoVB

Though the games are in South Korea, the US’s “reasoning,” behind considering this very precautious effort due to rising tensions with North Korea. However, this is a matter which South Korea lives with everyday, as some have mentioned.
What a blow to one of America’s most important allies, S Korea, to even suggest such a thing. South Koreans live with N Korean threat every day and they’re not panicking. US officials shouldn’t be either—unless they’re planning to start a war with N Korea. https://t.co/D1LTgZNZaf
