After President Trump saved 3 UCLA basketball players from years of jail, one of their fathers had the nerve to bash Trump on ESPN right after it happened.
LaVar Ball, father of UCLA player LiAngelo, doubted Trump had any role on setting the 3 basketball players free after they were caught shoplifting in China. Ball replied “Who?” when asked about Trump’s role in the situation and then said “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”
China usually doesn’t take the crime of shoplifting without severe punishment and the entire UCLA team came back to the US without the 3 players, who were incarcerated.
Thanks to President Trump, who just-so-happened to be finishing up travel in the area, they were all 3 released and returned to the US…PUNISHMENT FREE! You’d think that parents of the 3 players would naturally be grateful their children being returned safely, but that is exactly opposite of what Lavar Ball did by belittling the President.
Trump, annoyed by Ball’s slam of him, replied with a bold remark just moments ago! He said:
“Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!”

LaVar Ball, who hasn’t yet replied to the President’s tweet, completely had it coming. He should be thanking the President, like what his son did upon his release. Here is his son, LiAngelo’a statement thanking President Trump:
