  • Nikki Haley casts some doubt on USA athletes at 2018 PyeongChang Olympics

While U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley raised questions about the USA's participation in the upcoming Olympics in South Korea, Olympic officials sought to curb concerns about security.

Sanders said the decision would be made through an inter-agency process, with Trump weighing in on whether the athletes should go to South Korea. "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", said Haley. And certainly, that's a flawless opportunity for all of them to go and do something they've worked so hard for.

According to the Washington Post, Haley said the United States will take "every precaution" to ensure the safety of its athletes.

Tensions with the US have ratcheted up after a series of North Korean missile tests.

The 2018 Winter Olympics are scheduled to be held February 9-25 in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Some Olympic athletes training for PyeongChang told NBC News in recent weeks that family and friends are increasingly asking them about what rising tensions in the Korean Peninsula means for them.

The U.S. has not missed an Olympics since 1980, when it boycotted the summer games in Moscow at the behest of then-President Jimmy Carter over the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan.

This is not the first time the 2018 South Korean Winter Olympics have been a topic of contention.

Worldwide tensions are heating up as the Winter Olympics draw closer.

"We have not had any discussions, either internally or with our government partners, about the possibility of not taking teams to the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games", the USOC said in a statement.

"He plans to watch an ice hockey event together with his fans to relay his thanks and contribute to the success of PyeongChang", a Tree J representative said.

"We are confident in the Pyeongchang Organising Committee's ability to deliver a great Games, and our hope is that the focus will be on our athletes". "I wouldn't say it's something I never think about, but I'm confident we're in good hands". As a result, Russian government officials are not permitted to attend the games, and spectators will neither see the Russian flag nor hear the Russian national anthem in Pyeongchang.
