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

•, by Erik Ortiz and Ali Vitali

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.
