Thur, June 22, 2017: Trump meets with IOC on Los Angeles’ 2024 Olympics bid

While Los Angeles is all but assured of hosting an upcoming Olympics, the city’s bid to stage a Summer Games has an outspoken — if controversial — booster willing to lobby on its behalf.

President Trump met with Thomas Bach, president of the International Olympic Committee, on Thursday at the White House. The meeting was closed to the press and details of their visit were not immediately available.

“President Trump confirmed his support for the L.A. candidature,” Mark Adams, an IOC spokesman, said at the conclusion of the visit.
