Three UCLA basketball players returned home last week after being detained in China for shoplifting, and Trump, as we all knew he would, took a ton of credit for their release.
The UCLA players were on a team trip to China to play a game against Georgia Tech when they were arrested on November 7 on suspicion of stealing a pair of sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store as well as items from two other high-end stores near the team hotel in Hangzhou.
The players faced potential jail sentences for shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in the country, however Trump reportedly spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the matter.
Trump's tweet on Sunday came after the father of player LiAngelo Ball minimised Trump's involvement in winning the players' release in comments to ESPN. "Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out", Ball told ESPN.
The players returned to the USA last week. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!" he wrote on Twitter. "The president was saying, 'It's not too serious". Ball said of Trump.
While all three thanked Trump in a press conference after the fact, LaVar Ball's resistance to acknowledge that his son received help led to the Twitter storm. "I've learned my lesson from this big mistake, and I'm a hundred percent sure I'll never make a mistake like this again". Sunday's tweet from the president of the United States calling out Lavar Ball by name somehow seemed like a foregone conclusion.
