Trump Tweets He Should Have Left UCLA Players in Chinese Jail

News

More Twitter drama Sunday from the Commander in Chief.

The president fired off a tweet this morning directed at LaVar Ball, the father of one of the UCLA basketball players arrested in China.

President Trump wrote: “Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo Ball, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

The three UCLA players were arrested for alleged shoplifting last week.

All three players thanked the president after flying back home.

Trump later took credit for their release, saying that he personally intervened with the Chinese president.

But LaVar Ball later suggested in an ESPN interview that Trump had little to do with the matter.
