Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton (R) blasted the 2022 Beijing Olympics, warning the world’s athletes of how dangerous going to China is after the mysterious disappearance of a Chinese tennis pro who had made accusations of rape against a high government official.
Sen. Cotton’s Thursday tweet came in response to U.S. tennis star Serena Williams’ calls for accountability in China over the disappearance of player Peng Shuai. Williams told USA Today that she is “devastated and shocked to hear about the news” of Shuai’s sudden disappearance from public. “I hope she is safe and found as soon as possible. This must be investigated, and we must not stay silent,” Williams added.
Cotton had an even more dire warning for Williams and all U.S. athletes
