Earlier today, The Biden administration announced that the US would be doing a diplomatic boycott of Beijing’s Winter Olympics.
The United States said on Dec. 6 it won’t send an official delegation to Beijing for the 2022 Winter Olympics in protest against the Chinese regime’s ongoing human rights crisis in Xinjiang.
The move won’t affect American athletes, who will still be allowed to compete.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the regime’s “ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity” means Washington “cannot proceed with business as usual.”
“U.S. diplomatic or official representation would treat these games as business as usual in the face of the PRC’s [People’s Republic of China] egregious human rights abuses and atrocities in Xinjiang, and we simply can’t do that,” Psaki told a daily press briefing on Dec. 6, weeks after President Joe Biden said the administration was considering such a move.
“As the president has told President Xi, standing up for human rights is in the DNA of Americans, we have a fundamental commitment to promote human rights,” she added, referring to Chinese leader Xi Jinping. The two leaders had met for the first time virtually on Nov. 15.
The point of this is to make Biden look tough.
They want to make it seem like Biden is going to take on China over its human rights abuses.
This is completely phony.
The Biden administration has surrendered to China on one of the key issues.
That is the origins of COVID.
