Olympic Voters Weigh Trump Effect On LA 2024 Bid

The US President elect Donald Trump has caused an upset for some including the potential to influence Los Angeles’ chances of hosting the 2024 Olympics.

Some International Olympic Committee members those that will choose among Los Angeles, Paris and Budapest in a vote next September cited possible pros and cons of Trump’s role in the American bid.

Trump’s words on Muslims, Mexicans and other issues could have offended some of the 98 IOC members from around the world who are set to select the host city.

Swiss IOC member Rene Fasel suggested that if Trump spoke offensively during the Presidential race it was a tactic to woo voters that worked.

In the final bid campaign Paris could also face its own domestic politics as France elects a President in a contest many predict will include a far-right candidate among the two candidates in a second round of voting.
