Nikki Haley hinted on Wednesday that America's Olympic athletes might not participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics because of a potential volatile situation with North Korea.

The U.S. had already committed to attending the games, but U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley cast doubt on the issue Wednesday night when she told Fox News that it was an "open question".

"I think those are conversations we're going to have to have". "We don't ever fear anything - we live our lives, we use our freedom, we have that - and certainly that's a flawless opportunity for [American Olympic athletes] to go and do something they've worked so hard for".

".And certainly that is a ideal opportunity for all of them to go and do something they have 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.
