International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach and the Los Angeles 2024 bid team have been among those to offer their congratulations to Donald Trump following his election as United States President.
Trump's success over Hillary Clinton has been widely interpreted as a blow for the Los Angeles bid considering how it may affect the US standing in the wider world.
This view was not helped by Los Angeles' Mayor Eric Garcetti responding to a question about him during Rio 2016 by claiming "an American that turns inward, like any country that turns inward, isn't good for world peace, isn't good for progress, isn't good for all of us".
Others, however, maintain that his election will have little impact on a three-horse race that also consists of Budapest and Paris.
"I congratulate him to his election and wish him all the best for his new term in the interests of the United States and of all the world," said Bach.
Los Angeles 2024 praised Trump's sporting interest which has seen him carry the Olympic Torch ahead of Athens 2004.
"LA 2024 congratulates President-elect Donald J. Trump and appreciates his longstanding support of the Olympic Movement in the United States," they said.
"We strongly believe the Olympics and LA 2024 transcend politics and can help unify our diverse communities and our world.
"LA 2024 has achieved 88 per cent public support in the latest poll and strong bipartisan Government support at the local, state and federal level.
"We look forward to working closely with President-elect Trump and his Administration across the Federal Government to deliver a 'New Games for a new Era' that will benefit and inspire the entire Olympic Movement in 2024'."
It is possible Trump could appear at the IOC Session in Lima in September at which a final decision will be made.
His predecessor Barack Obama made an unsuccessful appearance at the 2009 Session in Copenhagen at which Chicago was defeated by Rio de Janeiro in the race for the 2016 Games.
