Donald Trump Asks: Will UCLA Basketball Players He Saved From Long Prison Sentences In China Say “Thanks”?
Three UCLA Basketball players were arrested in China after they attempted to steal expensive sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Beijing. Lucky for them, the attempted theft took place while President Donald Trump was in China for his series of successful meetings with Asian leaders.
It has been reported that President Trump personally intervened in the case, asking President Xi Jinping to release the three Americans LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill.
“UCLA Men’s Basketball student-athletes LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley are returning from China to Los Angeles at this time,” UCLA associate communications director, Alex Timiraos, said in a statement.
Once arriving back in America Tuesday, the three (incredibly entitled) basketball players ignored all reporters questions and claimed that they would address what happened in a press conference Wednesday (today).
President Donald Trump has openly wondered on Twitter this morning: will they thank him for guaranteeing their release, or will they not accolade it due to the far-left culture of UCLA?
Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!
