This Is a Good First Step

U.S. Announces Official Diplomatic Boycott Of Beijing Olympics | The Daily Wire

I’ve been opposed to a full boycott, so this is the start to a useful compromise. But need to do more.

Many will accuse Biden of being weak against the Chinese again, and that’s a valid criticism, but boycotting the entire games is just a stupid idea.

On Monday, the United States government announced an official diplomatic boycott of the Beijing Winter Olympics in response to human rights violations committed by the Chinese Communist Party. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki made the announcement during her Monday appearance before the White House pool.

“The Biden administration will not send any diplomatic or official representation to the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympic Games, given the PRC’s ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity,” Psaki told media.

I’ll want to see if Biden does anything further or if this is as far as it goes.
