LOS ANGELES (USA): The United States Government will work with the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to ensure athletes and officials from all countries are granted "expedited access" to the nation following travel restrictions imposed by President Donald Trump's Executive Order. In a statement, the USOC added they hoped the ruling will "appropriately recognise the values on which our nation, as well as the Olympic Movement, were founded". From insidethegames.
