(SFC) The American President-Elect Donald Trump has weighed in to offer his support for the Los Angeles 2024 Olympic bid to IOC President Thomas Bach.

The Los Angeles 2024 bid revealed the phone call in a post on Twitter stating "President-elect Trump spoke with IOC President Bach to express his strong support for the @Olympics & #LA2024's plans to host a great Games" 

The President-Elect last week also called Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Associated Press reports that Garcetti arranged the call between Trump and Bach to further drive home the commitment.

Los Angeles is bidding against Budapest and Paris to host the Summer Games in 2024 and the IOC will select their host city in Lima, Peru next September.
