Is the world ready for Donald Trump vs. LaVar Ball?
Bring a spare pair of earplugs, because Donald Trump versus LaVar Ball is going to be loud.
To recap: LiAngelo Ball, the UCLA freshman, landed back in Los Angeles on Tuesday after he and teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill had been arrested and questioned in Hangzhou, China, on suspicion of shoplifting (all three have been “suspended indefinitely” by UCLA, according to a USA Today report published last Friday).
Keep up with this story and more by subscribing now LaVar, though, took issue with Trump claiming credit for his son’s release.
“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.
“Shoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar,” Trump wrote.
