Nikki Haley thinks U.S. athletes could skip the Olympics

Nikki Haley hinted on Wednesday that America's Olympic athletes might not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics because of a potential volatile situation with North Korea.

On 29 November, North Korea said it had successfully tested a new type of intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that could reach the whole of continental United States.

Answering a question about uncertainty surrounding the participation of USA athletes in the global sports event held on the Korean Peninsula, she said Washington would continue monitoring the situation in the region in order to ensure protection of its athletes.

When asked to clarify Haley's comments on Thursday at the regular White House press briefing, Sanders initially said that "no official decision has been made" about participation and the final decision would be made closer to the Games.

We Win! Taxes Cut for All!
The bill is "removed from the reality of what the American people need", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. That has dinged the argument from Collins and other Republicans that economic growth will offset the lost revenue.

"It's an inter-agency process but I think ultimately, the president would certainly weigh in", Sanders said.

"What we will do is make sure that we are taking every precaution possible, to make sure that they are safe". "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", Haley said, as reported by CNN.

The International Olympic Committee banned the entire Russian Olympic team from the games earlier this week over a doping scandal.

A U.S. Olympic Committee spokesman has previously said that staging such a sports spectacle can be a challenge for any host city, which must contend with an influx of worldwide visitors. Americans are wondering whether U.S. athletes will be safe in light of hostility from North Korea.

Nokia 9 And Nokia 8 (2018) To Be Launched On 19th January
HMD Global is planning to launch the Nokia 9 very soon, as early as January 2018, according to sources. But it won't be alone it seems, as there are also plans to launch a re-booted Nokia 8 alongside.

"There is full support from the United Nations, very positive message coming out of the assembly", said Christophe Dubi, the executive director of the Olympic Games.

The Winter Olympics are due to be held from February 9-25 in Pyeongchang.

But despite Haley's claims that these are ongoing conversations, United States Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Jones told The New York Times that there have been no discussions about American attendance in Pyeongchang.

"What have we always said?"
