Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti acknowledged Saturday that the results of Novembers U.S. presidential election could weigh heavily on his citys chances of hosting the 2024 Olympics, saying that a victory by Donald Trump could turn off IOC voters.
In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Garcetti also said Los Angeles could offer the last, best hope for the United States to host the Summer Olympics again before the American people begin tuning out from the games.
Garcetti, a 45-year-old Democrat and supporter of Hillary Clinton, is in Brazil to observe the Rio de Janeiro Games and pitch his citys bid to members of the International Olympic Committee. One of the main topics of conversation with IOC delegates has been the U.S. election and the prospects of a Trump presidency.

you mean the way obama’s victory secured the 2016 olympics in chicago??
The IOC is as corrupt, or perhaps even more so, than the Clintons.
So who gives a shi...er...who gives an Obama?
Olympics is nothing more now than leftist NWO one world government propaganda vehicle. The opening ceremonies was a leftist disgrace
To me, the IOC is nothing more than a money sucking 2 week orgy. I can live without it!
Go #### yourself.
Like that s remotely important right now with the world crumbling around us.
Get your heads out of your #####ing butts.
This Democrat scammer just wants to get his hands on some extra cash. He should know that hosting the Olympics is a fast track to insolvency. Mitt Romney won’t be bailing out any more U.S. Olympics tethering on the edge of failure, as he did Salt Lake City’s winter games.
Who’s interested in the couch/kayak slalom?
Gotta get ahead of the Blame Game, huh Mayor Yogapants?
Whoa, the whole world gets to weigh in on OUR election?? Dang, Garcetti, let it go then.
Vote for Hillary, or we’ll lose the ‘24 Olympics.
Excellent!!! I’m voting for Trump for sure now!!! The “Olympics” are a joke. When a bunch of “refugees” can make the Olympics, you know it’s a circus. Too much leftwing kook politics involved.
so, the Mayor of LA thinks the 2024 Olympics is more important the U.S.A. ?
Yes, this one is Propaganda 101. Is there a LGBT team? There are refugees, trans-genders, men on the women’s teams? Did I miss anything? Obama’s final legacy - make the world nuts.
Can we just stop with the stupid olympics already? I love our athletes but the olympics are a giant scam who cares.
Who cares? They are way too political now. I don’t think I have cared since the girls gymnastics years ago.
Let some other country have the disaster there.
LA just had it in the 80s, fer cryin’ out loud.
We have a country to save. Screw your stupid Olympics.
LOL so the only way we can get the Olympics here is if we elected Murdering b*tch Hillary to be our President..than screw the Olympics than!
