Nikki Haley Calls US Presence at South Korea Olympics an 'Open Question'

Torres says she is happy this is happening for the clean athletes out there.

The American envoy to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, said on Wednesday that it was an "open question" whether American athletes would be able to attend the Olympics in South Korea in February given the tensions on the Korean Peninsula. "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", said Haley.

"I think those are conversations we are going to have to have, but what have we always said?"

The question of USA involvement in the games has been a talking point on FOX News for the past several days.

In the new expansion to Ubisoft's skiing and snowboarding sim, you can participate in events in 2018 Winter Olympics, with events including the halfpipe, slalom, and ski jump.

'What we will do is make sure we're taking every precaution possible to make sure they're safe and to make sure we know everything that's going on.' A US Olympic Committee statement later insisted the possibility of not competing had not been discussed. North Korea also recently tested an intercontinental ballistic missile that experts said could reach anywhere in the U.S.

Haley's comments about the Olympics came as observers wondered whether the Trump administration's policies were making Americans a target for terrorists and extremists overseas.

"Back then they were talking about safety issues and in fact, when we left the village, they would have a guard with a huge gun walk with us everywhere just because they were so concerned about safety", she says. "We plan on supporting two full delegations in Pyeongchang".

And then, after her press briefing, she tweeted to clarify that the United States "looks forward to participating in the Winter Olympics in South Korea". "So we're preparing as if we're going to go".

The 2018 Winter Olympics will be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, just 50 miles from the North Korea. She added that a decision would be made "closer to" the games.

Collins said that the absence of US athletes at the games would suggest volatility at a time when officials should be intent on remaining calm, and could undermine the relationship with key allies in the region.
