White House adviser Ivanka Trump will lead the U.S. presidential delegation at the closing ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics, according to a Monday report.
The daughter of President Donald Trump was reportedly asked by her father and the United States Olympic Committee to attend the closing ceremony in Pyeongchang, South Korea, according to CNN. Trump will also be attending a few sporting events in which the U.S. will be participating.
Vice President Mike Pence will be attending the Olympics, as well, and will lead the U.S. delegation with his wife at the Friday opening ceremonies. The vice president also reportedly plans to counter North Korea’s continued threats to the U.S. if the opportunity presents itself.
“I have not requested a meeting, but we’ll see what happens,” Pence told reporters Monday evening, explaining, “President Trump has always said he believes in talking.” (RELATED: Pence Leaves Door Open For Possible Talks With North Korea At The Olympics)
