LaVar Ball said he’d like to thank a president — just not the one who resides in the White House.
The outspoken father of the LiAngelo Ball, one of three UCLA men’s basketball players arrested for shoplifting earlier this month in China, continued the back-and-forth with President Trump on CNN Tonight Monday, where Ball again questioned what Trump did to free the trio.
“Did he help the boys get out?” Ball said. ” I don’t know. If I was going to thank someone, I would probably thank (Chinese) President Xi (Jinping).”
In a disjointed interview despite the best efforts of host Chris Cuomo, Ball once again declined to thank Trump.
