Biden Reportedly Plans to Boycott 2022 Beijing Olympics

  • No U.S. government officials will attend the Beijing Games.

Neither President Biden nor any other U.S. government official plans to attend the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, per the Washington Post.

According to a CNN report, the Biden administration still hasn’t reached a final conclusion.

The White House’s potential plan is a response to alleged human rights violations in China and follows a group of bipartisan U.S. House members in July introducing legislation to initiate a boycott of the Winter Games that wouldn’t punish athletes.

  • Any boycott would likely be approved before the end of November.
  • The White House expects U.S. allies to make their own decision on whether to boycott.
  • The 2022 Winter Olympics are scheduled to take place Feb. 4-20.

The White House isn’t the only entity responding to alleged human rights abuses in China, which the country has denied.

Earlier this year, Nike and Adidas voiced concerns following reports of forced labor in their supply chains, namely in cotton farms in the Xinjiang region.
