Libertarian Candidate Jokes Trump Watching Olympics For Mexican Pole Vaulters

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson took a jab at Donald Trump with a line that comedians would be proud of while speaking with the Reno Gazette-Journal.

"I hear that Donald Trump is watching the Olympics tonight," Gary Johnson said, "He’s seeing how high the Mexican pole vaulters go."

Johnson was talking about Trump's plan to build a wall along with US-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration and the movement of drugs.

"Look, the deportation of 11 million undocumented workers starts with misinformation," he said. "They are hardworking people that have come into the Untied States and they have to come in illegally because the government can't provide them an easy way to get in legally."

Meanwhile, Los Angeles major Eric Garcetti claimed the city's bid for the 2024 Olympic Games would be hurt if Trump became president.

"I think for some of the IOC members they would say, 'Wait a second, can we go to a country like that, where we've heard things that we take offense to?," Garcetti told AP.

"But I think that gives us even more urgency globally, where we can say, 'This is something that is a different strength maybe than the things that you've heard or the things you believe.' I think we continue no matter what the outcome of the election is."

Los Angeles is competing with Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary to host the for the 2024 Summer Games.
