LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley, all basketball players from UCLA, were arrested for stealing sunglasses from a shop in Hangzhou China. President Trump was on his 12 day long mission though Asia but graciously stepped in and had a great conversation with President Xi.
“UCLA freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were seen late Tuesday at Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport checking into a Delta flight bound for Los Angeles, airline staff said,”
Trump: “The basketball players, by the way — I know a lot of people are asking — I will tell you, when I heard about it two days ago, I had a great conversation with President Xi.”
“What they did was unfortunate.”
“You know, you’re talking about very long prison sentences. They do not play games.”
“Hopefully everything is going to work out.”
