"I should have left UCLA players in jail": Trump fires back


'Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal.

It started with LaVar's comments, when he downplayed the role Trump played in LiAngelo's release from China, where he and three other UCLA players were being held on charges of shoplifting. Like I told him, "They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes".

LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo Ball, on Saturday suggested Trump had little to do with the release of the three Bruins basketball players who were accused of shoplifting and were under house arrest in Hangzhou, China.

Trump took credit for the release saying he had discussed the basketball players' fate during a meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping before tweeting a message to the young men on Thursday. POTUS demanded praise immediately, and wondered on Twitter if the three players would bother thanking him. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!"


'As long as my boy's back here, I'm fine, ' LaVar Ball told ESPN.

"Who?" LaVar Ball answered. "And the reason that these tweets are important is that they are a serious look into his psyche, into what the president cares about". "I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses", he said.

The players were arrested and questioned on November 7 about stealing from high-end stores, including sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins had been staying before leaving for Shanghai to face Georgia Tech. It sure looks like race baiting to a lot of people.

On Wednesday, UCLA coach Steve Alford announced the players were suspended indefinitely.
