Donald Trump Says He Should Have Left UCLA Players Jailed In China

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

President Trump, upset over a lack of gratitude from the father of one of the three UCLA basketball players who Trump claims to have help freed from imprisonment in China, said on Sunday that he "should have left them in jail".

Three University of California, Los Angeles basketball players were released from China last week after being arrested on shoplifting charges. Yet Trump intervened, personally asking Chinese president Xi Jinping to help resolve the case. "Don't tell me nothing", LaVar Ball told ESPN.

During a Wednesday press conference, the teenage players, themselves, issued apologies for their behavior and thanked everyone involved for helping to resolve the matter and bringing them home, including President Trump.

Clinton: Threat of Uranium One Special Counsel Is 'Abuse of Power'
Fox News made much of the revived scandal on Monday and the prospects of Sessions summoning general counsel to investigate. The reporter noted the Clinton State Department did not possess the power to either veto or approve such a transaction.

The other two players each thanked Trump, as well.

LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo Ball, a UCLA freshman who was detained in Hangzhou following allegations of shoplifting, on Friday said "Who?" when asked about Trump's involvement in his son's release from custody. "Don't tell me nothing. Very ungrateful!" Trump tweeted. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!"

So although Trump received the praise he seems to have desperately sought from the players, Ball's comments nonetheless triggered a characteristically petulant (and not at all authoritarian) response from the president on Sunday.

KPRC legal analyst Brian Wice explained Sheriff Nehls was wrong about the law and that the 1971 case of Cohen v. She said there was "no particular reason " they made a decision to stick the message on the back of the truck.

"As long as my boy's back here, I'm fine", he said. It sure looks like race baiting to a lot of people.

Previously, we speculated that it was possible Trump wanted to hear a "thank you" not just from the basketball players, but also from the unapologetic LaVar Ball himself.

"I'm from LA. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses". UCLA has suspended them from the team indefinitely.

OnePlus 5T flagship starts at $499, launches November 21
We did not have the chance to test the UI under pressure, but it worked without any glitches or lags during our test run. In our short hands-on time with the OnePlus 5T , we found the display to be a noticeable upgrade over the OnePlus 5 .

Which somehow manages to both be accurate - Trump was making it a bigger deal - and totally cavalier about committing crimes in foreign countries - shoplifting in China is different than shoplifting in L.A.!
