WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump says he should have left three UCLA basketball players accused of shoplifting in China in jail.

Trump's tweet today comes after the father of player LiAngelo Ball minimized Trump's involvement in winning the players' release during an interview yesterday with ESPN.

Trump has said he raised the players' detention with Chinese President Xi Jinping during the leaders' recent meeting in Beijing.

The players returned to the U.S. last week. They have been indefinitely suspended from the team.

Says Trump: "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!"
