President Donald Trump has responded to criticism from LaVar Ball for his role in the return of the three UCLA freshmen basketball players - LiAngelo Ball (Lonzo's younger brother), Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley - after they were arrested for shoplifting in China, saying that because of Ball's ungratefulness, he "should have left them in jail".
All three players, LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, thanked Trump at a press conference in the US, but Ball's father Lavar, who is famous for being braggadocios, refused to give the president any credit. They went to jail, but were released on bail, which is something that apparently indicated the Chinese authorities were taking a rather chill approach to all of this to begin with.
"What was he over there for?" I want to put it on the table.

"They were headed for 10 years in jail!", Trump tweeted on Wednesday. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!" he wrote on Twitter. President Trump told reporters that he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about the incident and took credit for their release. Trump said on Twitter Sunday morning.
Ball's comments, while not particularly gracious given the circumstances, once again proved no slight is too small to pierce the president's thin candy shell.
"As long as my boy's back here, I'm fine", he said. Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A. It sure looks like race baiting to a lot of people.
All three players have been suspended from the UCLA basketball team indefinitely. And, in the end, that's surely exactly what Ball wanted.
