As the U.S. begins to compete at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is making it clear that America needs to boycott next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing.
Haley supports a boycott of the games as a response to the Communist Chinese government’s human rights abuses against Uyghur Muslims and other ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang region, which the U.S. has recognized as genocide.
“The physical and sexual abuse that’s happening to women and children, the forced labor … it’s unthinkable,” Haley said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation. “We have to fight for these people who can’t fight for themselves.”
Agnès Callamard, secretary general of Amnesty International, called the conditions a “dystopian hellscape” after the organization’s 2021 report found that the Chinese government was engaging in “state-organized mass imprisonment, torture and persecution.”
