“I wish the best of luck to the athletes competing on behalf of the United States in the 2022 Winter Olympics beginning today in Beijing. I am proud of their accomplishments and look forward to watching them succeed in this year’s Olympic games. However, I remain disappointed in the International Olympic Committee for maintaining the decision to hold the Olympic games in a country that continually commits egregious human rights violations against its own citizens. The Chinese Communist Party must be held accountable for the censorship of its citizens and repeated repression of ethnic and religious minorities.” – Senator Mike Braun
