Former President Donald Trump referred to the Biden administration’s planned boycott of the Olympic Games to be held in China on Feb. 4 expressing that he would not implement it.
“There are much more powerful things we can do than that, much, much more powerful things. That’s not a powerful thing. It almost makes us look like, I don’t know, sore losers,” Trump expressed in an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Dec. 19, cited by Breitbart.
Trump would prefer that U.S. athletes attend and “win every medal,” he also recalled when during the presidency of then President Jimmy Carter a total boycott of Russia was imposed “it didn’t work.”
“No, I don’t think I would. I think it’s unfair to the athletes, and I think it’s unfair in many ways to many other countries. I wouldn’t do it,” he replied.
He added: “I would do other things more powerful than that. It’s been done before, and it didn’t work. It was under Jimmy Carter, who now happens to be the second-worst president.”
It should be noted that the sabotage proposed by the president, Joe Biden, would only limit attendance to diplomats who, on the other hand, have not been invited by the Chinese communist regime.
In another interview granted to Breitbart, Trump expanded his appreciations when asked if he would apply a boycott to what have been called the Olympic Games of Genocide, having been more emphatic that time.
The multiple violations of human rights for which the Communist Party of China (CCP) is accused, are what motivate the international rejection of the celebration of the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing as the venue.
In this regard, members of the Tibetan Youth Association in Europe (TYAE) and Students for a Free Tibet are leading the protests, and, in fact, some of their members chained themselves to the Olympic rings in front of the Swiss headquarters of the International Olympic Committee on Dec. 11.
“Despite mounting international criticism of the IOC and China, the Chinese regime’s human rights abuses in Tibet, East Turkestan, and Hong Kong continue unabated,” said Tenzing Dhokhar, campaigns director of TYAE (Tibetan Youth Association in Europe), the largest Tibetan youth organization on the continent.
Meanwhile, the Uighur Tribunal in the United Kingdom, founded by lawyers and human rights experts, ruled that the CCP is committing genocide against the Uighurs and other ethnic minorities in Xinjiang province, in the far west of China.
After examining the testimonies of more than 500 witnesses and 40 experts on the Uyghur people in Xinjiang on December 9, he stated that the CCP used various forms of repression amounting to genocide.
These included forced births, birth control and abortion to reduce the Uighur birth rate to achieve the so-called goal of “optimizing” Xinjiang’s population.
Also, the Court said that the CCP had the “intention to partially exterminate” the Uighurs, thus the CCP “committed genocide.”
