I can think of seven countries that might not be able to send athletes to LA.

I actually wonder if that might cost them their bid. If Trump lasts 2 terms, he will still be there in 2024 if he stays healthy in his unripe old age.

Athletes are given some leeway with the ban:

But USOC chairman Larry Probst and chief executive Scott Blackmun said Trump’s government had told them there would be an “expedited process” to allow athletes to enter the U.S.

Q: Will the order affect American athletes who compete outside the United States?

A: Yes. Two Americans playing in Iran's top pro basketball league already have been denied re-entry into Iran as authorities in that country retaliate. J.P. Prince and Joseph Jones are stranded in Dubai.

Earlier on Monday, USA Wrestling said it plans to send a team to next month’s World Cup in Iran despite that country’s claim that it would ban American visitors in retaliation to Trump’s immigration order.
