UCLA Players Return To USA, Donald Trump Says They Better ‘Thank Him’ (TWEET + VIDEO)
Donald Trump has never been one to shy away from praising himself for a job well done, and he was at it again this morning.
When UCLA teammates LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley arrived back home from China, after facing 3 to 10 years in prison for shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, the U.S. President was quick to take credit for their safe return.
Here’s Trump’s Tweet, in which he suggests the three Bruins players owe him a big “Thank You!”:
Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!

After being detained in their hotel following their arrest, the three players were set free and their flight from Shanghai landed in LAX early this morning, where tons of reporters were awaiting their arrival.
TMZ caught footage of LiAngelo, Jalen and Cody making their way through the crowded airport upon their return:
No word on whether Trump has received his “thank you” yet, but when he does you can bet your ass he’ll be sure to tell us all about it.
