International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach will meet with United States President Donald Trump today amid the ongoing Los Angeles bid for the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics.

The New York Times said the meeting would take place in Washington D.C, citing a White House official.

All three IOC members from the US, Anita DeFrantz, Larry Probst and Angela Ruggiero, could also be in attendance.

It has been reported, however, that no officials from Los Angeles 2024 will be present.

Bach is currently in the US as technology firm Intel signed on as a worldwide partner of the IOC in New York City yesterday.

Bach spoke to Trump on the telephone last November shortly after his election as US President.

The two reportedly got on well and the conversation lasted well over the five-minutes originally scheduled.

“President Trump has been and continues to be supportive of the bid and the administration has been helpful to the United States Olympic Committee in its application,” the White House said in a recent statement, as reported by USA Today.
