Trump on Twitter: I should have left UCLA players in jail

President Trump Blasts Father of Recently Released UCLA Player for Being Unappreciative of His Help in Gaining Son’s Release

On Sunday afternoon, Trump said he should have left the players in jail. LaVar Ball, however, didn't appear to be interested in patting the president on the back.

But when asked about Trump's help, LaVar Ball, who has become a controversial basketball figure for his outspokenness on the greatness of his sons and his misogynist remarks, had this to say this weeek. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", he continued.

LaVar Ball, whose son LiAngelo was on the UCLA roster, downplayed Trump's role in an interview with ESPN.

Rose injured the ankle October 20 at Milwaukee and missed four games, then returned, before missing Cleveland's past four games. Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert will miss a week with a left knee injury , the latest setback for a Cleveland point guard.

President Donald Trump responded to the LaVar Ball on Sunday, after the father of UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ball said that Trump had no hand in getting his son and two others released from jail after they were caught shoplifting in China nearly two weeks ago.

According to the White House, Trump negotiated the release of UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hall after they were accused of shoplifting while touring China. I'm happy with how things were handled.

But shortly after the players were freed, the president took to Twitter to deride the lack of thanks he had received after intervening, commenting: "Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?" The trio of alleged thieves were nevertheless allowed to leave the country and landed back in Los Angeles, where they addressed the media the following day before being indefinitely suspended by the team. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.
