Trump tweets about UCLA players

(WILX)-- President Donald Trump fires back at the father of one of the UCLA basketball players recently released from China.

In a tweet trump said, "Lavar Ball, the father of LiAngelo is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail."

The tweet comes after Ball made the suggestion that Trump didn't have much to do with the release of the players.

The three players all thanked President Trump for his role in their release during a news conference last week.
