A vote today against our American athletes participating in these Olympics is a vote against tyranny.
History remembers the winners. Every man or woman on that field is grateful for the chance to be there, to meet in the spirit of friendly competition, man against man, nation against nation, to test themselves without fear or rancor against the best the other side has to offer. Surely we all agree the Olympic code is a direct antithesis to Nazi ideology. They're who we ought to be thinking about. Our athletes, those putting their sweat, their blood, their heart into getting that chance. I don't feel I have the right to take it away from them.
