LaVar Ball (LiAngelo's father) downplayed the role President Trump had in getting the three players back to the United States without serving any jail time earlier this week.

President Donald Trump on Sunday said he "should have left" three UCLA basketball players in custody in China because one of the player's fathers suggested Trump did not have much to do with his son's release. In response, Trump slammed Ball for being ungrateful and actually said, "I should have left them in jail".

The three players returned to Los Angeles on Tuesday after being accused of shoplifting from high-end stores during a trip to China.

Asked to comment on Trump's help, Ball had told ESPN: "What was he over there for?"

President Donald Trump used his Twitter platform Sunday to attack the father of a basketball player released from detention in China.

The next day, he encouraged the players to thank Xi Jinping and also encouraged them to HAVE A GREAT LIFE and "be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life", which seems like something he probably read on a fortune cookie from whatever is the Chinese food equivalent of the Cinco De Mayo taco bowl at Trump Tower. On Tuesday, the players returned home to the USA on Tuesday. Before they thanked Trump on Wednesday for intervening with Xi, Trump had wondered whether they would express gratitude to him. I want to put it on the table. 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.

The war of words continued Saturday following Ball's statement to ESPN when Trump's social media director, Dan Scavino, fired back at Ball on his personal Twitter account, saying Ball's son would be in China without the President's assistance. A lot of people like to say a lot of things that they thought happened over there. And, in the end, that's surely exactly what Ball wanted. UCLA has suspended them from the team indefinitely.
