The White House has not made a final decision on whether the United States will take part in the 2022 Winter Olympics in China, President Joe Biden's spokeswoman said on Thursday, even as some Republicans call for a boycott.

Republicans who have called either for a boycott or for the Olympics to be moved out of Beijing have cited a U.S. designation made under former President Donald Trump that the Chinese government was perpetrating genocide against Uyghur Muslims in its Xinjiang region.

Speaking to reporters about U.S. participation in the Beijing Olympics, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said, "There hasn't been a final decision made on that and, of course, we would look for guidance from the U.S. Olympic Committee."
