U.S Sports: ‘I should have left them in jail!’: Trump responds to LaVar Ball belittling his role in son’s release from China

 President Trump fired back at LaVar Ball in a tweet on Sunday morning
after Ball downplayed the president’s involvement in the release of his
son LiAngelo.

“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. I should have left them in jail!” the president tweeted.

LiAngelo Ball was arrested in China and charged with shoplifting along with two of his UCLA teammates
just days before the Bruins were scheduled to play Georgia Tech. The
trio of players did not return to the United States with their team, and
were placed on house arrest at their hotel while the police continued their investigation.

David Nakamura of the Washington Post later reported that President Trump asked his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, for help regarding the case
during his two-day state visit just a day after the arrests were made.
After Trump brought up the players’ arrests, Xi said he would look into
the case, and ensured that the three would be treated fairly.

Upon their return stateside, LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill held a press conference, at which Ball thanked the president and the United States government for their help in their safe return after Trump wondered on Twitter if he would receive praise for his work in getting the young men back home.

But on Friday, LiAngelo Ball’s father LaVar Ball downplayed Trump’s involvement
in his son’s return, asking ESPN’s Arash Markazi “Who?” and adding,
“What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to
make it seem like he helped me out.”

UCLA is reportedly still weighing potential punishment for the three players.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
