Donald Trump Asked Chinese President To Resolve UCLA Shoplifting Case

Report: Trump asked Xi to resolve Ball arrest

Trump called on China for the umpteenth time to strengthen sanctions on North Korea; Xi said nothing, and the Chinese press removed Trump's comments.

The three players have not been allowed to leave China after being accused of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near the team's hotel in Huangzhou last week.

Ball, Riley and Hill did not fly home with the team after Saturday's game, ESPN reported, and could be forced to remain in Hangzhou for another "week or two".

Meanwhile personnel from the FIA, the sport's governing body, were also caught up in a separate incident, but escaped unharmed. He walked away from the crash unscathed, but his title-winning vehicle sustained a significant amount of damage as a result.

Xi promised Trump that the UCLA players will be treated fairly and expeditiously, an anonymous US official told the Post.

That may have led to some legal help too.

In his article, Nakamura also noted that after Trump brought up the matter, Xi promised to take a look at the case. Since then, the trio is being required by local police to stay at the Hangzhou hotel until the legal process is complete.

Twitter suspends blue check mark verifications
Kessler tweeted that the victim, Heather Heyer, "was a fat, disgusting Communist", adding, "Communists have killed 94 million". In what appeared to be a response to that overflowing of anger, Twitter said it "paused all general verifications".

ESPN's Arash Markazi reported there is surveillance footage of the players shoplifting from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent and Salvatore Ferragamo stores, though the video itself has not yet been made public.

U.S. officials said the State Department normally takes over cases of American citizens when they are arrested overseas and that the U.S. Embassy in Beijing knows the case is ongoing.

Alford rejoined the rest of UCLA's team in Shanghai on Wednesday morning after the players were released. He reportedly said that his son's arrest was "not a big deal".
