POTUS is lashing back at the outspoken basketball dad after LaVar dissed Trump during an ESPN interview a few days ago. LaVar cast doubt on Trump’s role in freeing his son from China after LiAngelo and 2 UCLA basketball teammates shoplifted.
Trump took to Twitter Sunday morning and said … “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!”
So far no word back from LaVar — but we’re sure it’s only a matter of time.
As for LiAngelo and his 2 teammates … all 3 thanked President Trump after returning to the United States last week.
