President Trump fires back at father of UCLA basketball player

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

The president tweeted that Ball is "unaccepting" of what he did for his son, LiAngelo Ball, adding that because of that he should have left the college students in Chinese jail.

Donald Trump war of words was inevitable the moment LiAngelo Ball was arrested in China on suspicion of shoplifting during a UCLA team trip, which is a wild statement to say about the Kris Jenner of the basketball and the leader of the free world. "I'd also like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help that they provided as well", LiAngelo Ball said. President Trump told reporters that he spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping about the incident and took credit for their release. Like I told him, "They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes".

President Donald Trump continued his Twitter roasting of UCLA basketball dad and Big Baller Brand mogul LaVar Ball on Sunday evening, calling him "very ungrateful" for not thanking him for getting his son out of trouble. During a press conference Wednesday, the younger Ball thanked the president for his help.

The case drew great attention in the United States because LiAngelo's elder brother Lonzo has been a star for the Los Angeles Lakers in his debut season.

Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, retweeted Trump's tweet and included his own comment.

Brinkley sentenced Mill to 2-4 years in prison for two probation violations, a sentence that some have called too harsh. Now there's been a development in the case that may be in Mill's favor.

The players were arrested and questioned about stealing from high-end stores next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins stayed before leaving for Shanghai to play Georgia Tech. "We really appreciate you helping us out".

As long as my boy's back here, I'm fine. The university later announced that the players would be suspended indefinitely.

Trump, a braggart and reality show star like Ball, did not take kindly to this.

"Who?" Ball told ESPN when asked about Trump's role in the situation. "I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses", he said.
