President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted that he should have left the three UCLA players in a Chinese jail after LaVar Ball gave Trump no credit for their release.

Balls's son LiAngelo, as well as Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were detained in Hangzhou, about 100 miles southwest of Shanghai, on shoplifting charges a day before Trump arrived in China for his Asia tour. Trump had said he personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to intervene in the case.

"I would also like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help that they provided as well", Ball's son said in response. "Don't tell me nothing", LaVar Ball told ESPN. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", LaVar Ball said.

At a press conference after their return, all three players had individually thanked Trump, and initially, Trump seemed to acknowledge the players' gratitude. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!"

LaVar Ball told ESPN that while he was pleased with how the situation in China was handled, he feels like it was overblown. Donald Trump vs. LaVar Ball is the new rivalry of the future. "The president was saying, 'It's not too serious". There was no way Trump wasn't going to respond to that, it just took him until Sunday. All three players were suspended from the Bruins basketball team indefinitely.

The players were arrested and questioned on November 7 about stealing from high-end stores, including sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins had been staying before leaving for Shanghai to face Georgia Tech.

"Like I told him, 'They try to make a big deal out of nothing sometimes, '" Ball told ESPN. I'm from L.A. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses.
