Subject: Travel Pool Report #3a -- more from the gaggle

Here are more highlights from the Josh Earnest gaggle aboard Air Force One. Many thanks to co-pooler Jerome Cartillier for the assist.

Olympics
“The president is enthusiastic about the US Olympic committee announcement that the city of Los Angeles will be the US bid for the 2024 Olympic games. The city of Los Angeles has twice hosted the summer Olympic games and we are enthusiastic about the prospect of them hosting those games again”
“Both the president and the First Lady are very enthusiastic and very supportive of the bid”

Sanctions against China ?
“As you have heard me say when it comes to economic sanctions in the past, it would be strategically unwise for me to discuss any sort of policy making process related to economic sanctions in advance of those actually being announced. The reason for that is if I were to do so it would only allow those who would the potential targets to begin to take steps to evade those sanctions.
We have previously indicated our concerns regarding China’s activities in the cyberspace. These are concerns that the president has raised directly with his Chinese counterpart in the past”
