Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Trump Praised for His Role in Landing 2028 Summer Olympics

Los Angeles will have the 2028 Summer Olympic Games, announced the International Olympic Committee on Monday.

Paris had been dueling with Los Angeles to host the Summer Olympics, but the two cities reached an agreement in which Paris will host the games in 2024, followed by Los Angeles four years later.

President Donald Trump previously indicated that hosting the Olympics was a priority for the U.S.

Trump said in a statement Monday that we was pleased to see the games return to the United States.

“For the first time in a generation, the Olympics are coming back to the United States, and I am proud to support LA 2028,” Trump said. “I want to congratulate the United States Olympic Committee and the entire bid team for developing a plan that will ensure LA 2028 demonstrates the best in American creativity, innovation, and hospitality.”

Trump said America has a tradition of Olympic victory.

“The United States has a remarkable history of passionate and loyal support for the Olympic Movement. No country has won more Olympic medals or trained more Olympic and Paralympic athletes. America always shines brightly during the Games, and LA 2028 will be no exception,” the president said.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Trump promised that no policy changes made during his administration would prevent athletes from all countries from competing in the 2028 Olympic Games.

“People asked us a lot of questions,’’ Garcetti told USA Today Sports. “I think once (the White House) laid to rest that people would be able to come into the country, that was kind of off the table. “

“We actually had strong support from (the White House),” he added.

The IOC had indicated in June that as Paris and Los Angeles competed for the 2024 games, the runner-up would be awarded the right to host the 2028 games. Paris previously hosted the Olympics in 1900 and 1924, while Los Angeles hosted the 1932 and 1984 Olympics.

The United States last hosted the Summer Olympics in 1996 in Atlanta. It hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City in 2002.

Los Angeles has estimated that hosting the Olympics could cost more than $5 billion, with the IOC contributing up to $2 billion.

Trump said the Olympics exemplify the American spirit.

“The Olympic and Paralympic Games are one of the world’s greatest celebrations of humanity, and they hold a special place in the hearts of all Americans,” he said. “Every two years, we unite behind the remarkable athletes of Team USA who represent our nation’s talent, drive, and our unwavering will to win. Their triumphs inspire our own pursuit of the American dream.”

He added: “I am confident that the Summer Games in Los Angeles will exemplify both the Olympic ideal and the American spirit, and we look forward to hosting them.”
