U.S. President Donald Trump has “done everything” to support the Los Angeles bid to host the 2024 Olympic Games, bid chief Casey Wasserman told reporters, including holding a lengthy phone call with Olympic chief Thomas Bach.
Trump, the New York-based tycoon and former celebrity reality show host-turned politician, has been all the West Coast city could hope for, Wasserman said.
“Donald Trump has done everything we could have asked to support our bid,” entertainment executive Wasserman told a small group of reporters at his seventh-floor offices in central London.
“Every letter, every phone call … to President Bach… support of our bid generally … in my role, from what we need from the federal government, he’s been all I would hope for.”
Wasserman did not reveal the details of Trump’s call to Bach, only to say it had lasted a good while.
