The protests erupted hours before two Senior North Korean officials were scheuled to arrive at the Winter Olympic Opening ceremony.

President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were thrown out of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on Friday night after causing a scene at Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium.

All broke out in broad smiles.

With the 2018 Winter Olympics now underway, a Syracuse University professor is reflecting on his time with the USOC and looking ahead to the 2018 Games in South Korea.

Kim, who is said to be very close to her brother, was promoted to the North's powerful politburo previous year. His office said he did not interact with the North Koreans. There was another handshake.

The North Korean delegation also included the country's 90-year-old nominal head of state Kim Yong Nam, who was expected to attend a VIP reception before opening ceremony.

DPRK and South Korea will also form a women's ice hockey team to compete at PyeongChang.

"We are here today because the Pyeongchang Olympics, a pure sports events, has turned into propaganda for the North Korean regime, Kim Jong Un's regime, that is against our will", said Kyung Hye Kim.

Still, it probably should've been obvious that the giant red and blue circle featured prominently at the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in South Korea was the South Korean flag and not an American soda company's logo. The last time athletes from both nations competed on the same team was a 1991 worldwide table-tennis championship and youth soccer tournament.

Speaking with NBC's Lester Holt on the sidelines of the 23rd Olympic Winter Games, in PyeongChang, South Korea, Pence, who is leading the US delegation there, made clear that the USA was not ruling out military options as tensions continued to roil the Korean Peninsula.

"All eyes are focused on Kim Yong Nam and Kim Yo Jong. if she would invite President Moon to Pyongyang", he told The Straits Times.

The cauldron for the PyeongChang Games was lit by South Korea's Olympic heroine Kim Yuna, who enthralled the crowds in Vancouver as she won Olympic figure skating gold in 2010. "We want peace, everybody wants peace, nobody wants war".
