Nikki Haley casts some doubt on U.S. athletes at 2018 PyeongChang Olympics

Haley was initially asked Wednesday night on Fox News whether sending American athletes was a "done deal" given the tensions in the region, and responded that the situation is an "open question."

"I have not heard anything about that," she added, "but I do know in the talks that we have — whether it's Jerusalem or North Korea — it's about, how do we protect the U.S. citizens in the area?"

Her comments came on the day President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel — causing uproar among world leaders and fueling the threat of violent protests.

A spokesperson for the U.S. Mission to the U.N. said on Thursday that Haley's statements were taken out of context.
