President Joe Biden on Thursday said he is mulling a diplomatic boycott of next year’s winter Olympics in China. It’s “something we are considering,” Biden told reporters at the start of a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Earlier this week the Washington Post reported that the administration was expected to announce that neither Biden nor any other U.S. government officials will attend the games in Beijing. Sources told the Post the diplomatic boycott is intended as a way to respond to the Chinese government’s human rights abuses without impacting U.S. athletes.
