On Friday, USOC chief executive officer Scott Blackmun made it clear the US has every intention of attending next year's Olympics.

She also said that if invited to the White House after the Olympics she would decline.

"I think those are conversations we're going to have to have". "So yes, it definitely got our attention, but I think all's well that ends well, and it was just a little bit of an oversight in terms of language".

Haley insists United States move on Jerusalem will 'move the ball forward'
In October, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said all of Trump's accusers - more than a dozen women - are lying . But, you know, women should always feel comfortable coming forward. "And we should all be willing to listen to them".

Blackmun said the USOC hadn't received a single comment from an athlete or sponsor suggesting they don't want to go to the Olympics, which begin February 9. "We're gonna show up just like nearly 100 other nations and really looking forward to it". "We don't ever fear anything, we live our lives", Haley said.

Three-time Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn is set to participate in her fourth Winter Olympics under a third president, but according to a recent CNN interview she's less than thrilled about the prospect of President Trump leading the country she's representing. Blackmun declined to say whether he felt Trump could bar American athletes from competing.

During the White House press briefing Thursday, Sanders initially reiterated Haley's comments, saying there had been "no official decision" made on if American athletes would attend the Winter Games.

While North Korea has conducted several intercontinental ballistic missile tests - most recently last week, one that showed the ability to deliver a nuclear warhead as far as Washington, D.C. - Olympic officials continually have downplayed any security concerns related to these Winter Games.
