President Trump says the father of UCLA Bruin LiAngelo Ball is unappreciative of what he did for his son.
In a tweet Sunday, the president called out Lavar Ball after he made comments related to the release of his son and two other UCLA basketball players.
President Trump added he should have left the UCLA players in jail.
LaVar Ball spoke to ESPN over the weekend and said quote, “Everyone wants to make it seem like the president helped me out.”
The college players were detained earlier this month in China for shoplifting.
While on his trip to Asia, the commander-in-chief took time to speak with Chinese President Xi Jinping to release the players back to the U.S.
