Trump has long expressed an interest in both the Olympics and, in particular, the international competition to host them.
In 2012, Trump weighed in after eight badminton players from China, South Korea and Indonesia were been disqualified from the London Olympics for throwing matches in a preliminary round to set up better seeding.
“No surprise that China was caught cheating in the Olympics,” Trump tweeted. “That’s the Chinese M.O. – Lie, Cheat & Steal in all international dealings.”
