Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday took a swing at Mayor Marty Walsh on social media.
The tweet read: "Boston's Mayor Walsh wasted a lot of time and money on going for the Olympics, and then he gave up. I don't want him negotiating for me!"
The U.S. Olympic Committee has decided to withdraw its selection of Boston as the U.S. site entry for 2024.
Earlier Monday, Walsh announced he would not be pressured into signing the host city contract that puts the city on the hook for any cost overruns. Gov. Charlie Baker had been unwilling to pledge his support, waiting instead to see a full report from a consulting group that wasn't scheduled to be complete until next month.

The USOC says the federation still wants to try to host the 2024 Games. It has until Sept. 15 to officially name its candidates.
Mayor Walsh hasn't responded.
