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. "I should have left them in jail!"
Under Chinese law, the three players were facing years in prison for stealing sunglasses from a Versace store near the team's hotel prior to their regular season opener against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.
Trump has said he raised the players' detention with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the leaders' recent meeting in Beijing. That question, of course, was in response to the president demanding credit for "freeing" three UCLA players. "Don't tell me nothing", Ball told ESPN on Friday. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", LaVar Ball said.
S Korea launch major war drills as N Korea looks on
November 11: United States and South Korea on Saturday started joint naval four-day drills to warn the North Korea. During his recent visit to Seoul, Trump said, " North Korea is not the paradise your grandfather envisioned.
Trump, apparently insecure about approval ratings, asked whether the players would thank him. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!"
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. LaVar's words clearly affected Trump's ears, who felt insulted that he was not given the proper credit for dealing with the worldwide incident.

Jaya TV , a prominent TV channel in Tamil Nadu , was started by former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa. Since her death, they have been used as a tool in the factional war for the control of the AIADMK .
LaVar Ball told ESPN that while he was pleased with how the situation in China was handled, he feels like it was overblown.
"I'm from LA. I've seen a lot worse things happen than a guy taking some glasses". There was no way Trump wasn't going to respond to that, it just took him until Sunday. Now if you can go back and say when he was 12 years old he was shoplifting and stealing cars and going wild, then that's a different thing.
