Trump: I’m “working hard” to get the Olympics to Los Angeles

Yahoo News reports that President Trump’s claim to be hard at work to bring the Summer Olympics to Los Angeles is a weak one.

But the plan for Los Angeles to host the 2024 Games — led by Mayor Eric Garcetti — had been in the works long before Trump became president.

The city officially announced its bid, backed by President Barack Obama, on Sept. 1, 2015.

Los Angeles and Paris, the only two cities bidding for the Games, have long been expected to be named host cities for future Olympics. …

Trump has long expressed an interest in both the Olympics and, in particular, the international competition to host them.
