"I Should Have Left Them in Jail!": Trump Slams Sportsball Thief's "Ungrateful" Dad

President Trump slammed LaVar Ball, the father of sportsball players LiAngelo and Lonzo Ball, for attacking him just days after he got his criminal son LiAngelo and two others released from detention in China.

"Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal," Trump tweeted Sunday. "I should have left them in jail!"

"Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!" the president said in a follow-up tweet.

Rather than apologize for bringing shame to America, LaVar Ball attacked Trump and suggested he did nothing to get his son released.

From New York Times:
Mr. Trump's tweets were a response to an interview with ESPN in which LaVar Ball cast doubt on how much Trump had been involved in freeing LiAngelo, a freshman at U.C.L.A, and two of his teammates after they were arrested during a team trip to China earlier this month.

"Who?" LaVar Ball said when asked about Trump's involvement. "What was he over there for? Don't tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out."

When ABC's Michael Del Moro asked LaVar Ball on Sunday about the back-and-forth with the president, Ball claimed to not be interested in making any further statements. But he couldn't help one more jab.

"Did he go visit them in jail?" Ball asked. "Did you go visit them in jail? If you went to visit them in jail then I would say, 'Thank you.'"
Do you think he would have said this if Obama got his kid released?
LiAngelo Ball and his teammates, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were arrested on suspicion of shoplifting while in China with their teammates. Mr. Trump, who was in the middle of a tour of Asia, raised the case with President Xi Jinping of China, and the three players were allowed to return to the United States.
What a nice way to say they went on a looting spree.
The president's chief of staff, John Kelly, described to The Times how the episode had played out.

"Our president said to Xi, 'Do you know anything about these knuckleheads that got caught allegedly stealing?'" Mr. Kelly said. Unaware of the episode, the Chinese president dispatched an aide to get more information. "The president was saying, 'It's not too serious. We'd love to see this taken care of in an expeditious way,'" Mr. Kelly added.

Mr. Kelly added, "I bet they learned a lesson in their lives."
They learned nothing.

Their apologies were fake.

They probably stole some more on their way out knowing they wouldn't be prosecuted.

While it would have been funny if he left them in jail, it's better he got them out so everyone could see the hatred they have for America.

Extradite them back to China to serve out their sentences.
