U. N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says it is an open discussion about whether the U. S. will participate in the Winter Olympics.

Growing tension with North Korea may cause the United States to pull out of the 2018 Winter Olympics.

U. N. Ambassador Nikki Haley raised that prospect during an interview with Fox News Tuesday, saying that U. S. participation in the Olympics, which are scheduled to begin February 9 in Pyeongchang, South Korea, is “an open question.”

U. S. officials are already considering their options, Haley said.

“I think these are conversations we are going to have,” she said, though she added that Americans “don’t fear anything, we live our lives.”

Haley said the situation is changing day to day and concerns about the safety of U. S. athletes and citizens attending the games had to be taken into consideration.

Haley’s admission that safety concerns might cause the U. S. to stay home contrasted from comments National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster made Saturday at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California.
