Sports news outlet insidethegames.com reported in June that Trump had met with International Olympic Committee (IOC) head Thomas Bach at the White House.
According to an IOC statement sent to the website, Trump has confirmed his support for Los Angeles’ candidature.
At the moment, Los Angeles has only one rival – Paris, France – in its bid to host the Summer Games in 2024 or 2028.
Four other candidate cities – Boston, Rome, Budapest, and Hamburg – withdrew their bids earlier.
The United States has hosted eight Olympic Games, more than any other country. The most recent was the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City.
