President Trump: He should have left UCLA players in Chinese jail

The President clearly wasn't thrilled by Ball's comments Friday, when the loud-mouthed basketball father of UCLA freshman LiAngelo Ballsaid he didn't think Trump did all that much to help get his son and two teammates out of a shoplifting incident in China.
Trump, apparently sore about something said by a celebrity the rest of us have long ago learned to ignore, then said he should have left the UCLA players in jail, which is of course extremely presidential.
The younger Ball - whose brother Lonzo plays for the LA Lakers in the National Basketball Association - along with fellow freshmen Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, aren't with the rest of the Bruins, who are in Kansas City to play in the Hall of Fame Classic on Monday and Tuesday. Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Tuesday that he had spoken with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, about the situation on the players' behalf.
Days after President Donald Trump touted his role in the release of three UCLA basketball students, he comes back with another diss aimed at LaVar Ball. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", LaVar Ball said.
"Even Trump's own social media director, Dan Scavino, had words for the Ball family, tweeting Saturday afternoon, "[LiAngelo] would be in China for a long, long, long time without the President's assistance".
Trump, apparently insecure about approval ratings, asked whether the players would thank him. Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes.' I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.
At a press conference after their return, all three players had individually thanked Trump, and initially, Trump seemed to acknowledge the players' gratitude. The team's head coach, Steve Alford, later announced the trio was suspended indefinitely.
