Trump personally asks China to help LiAngelo Ball

LiAngelo Ball is one of three UCLA players detained in China after allegedly shoplifting last

President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping talked UCLA basketball while Trump was in China for a state visit, but the conversation wasn't about how good the Bruins will be this season. They will remain at the hotel until the legal process is completed.

"When I heard about it two days ago, I had a great conversation with President Xi", Trump told reporters on Air Force One shortly after taking off today from Manila, Philippines. Kelly remains in contact with Chinese authorities, and the anonymous USA official told the newspaper that charges against the three players have been reduced and that the case is headed toward a resolution. The source also said there is surveillance video that shows the players allegedly shoplifting from three stores.

Wetzel initially reported that the players may face 3-10 years imprisonment for shoplifting, but according to the China Law Translate, the penalties for shoplifting "can vary greatly". Three players were questioned from each team.

Ball, Riley and Hill were wearing Bruins workout gear as they exited the hotel health club Monday and lumbered toward the elevators. "They do not play games", he said of the Chinese justice system.
