(TSX / STATS) -- After LaVar Ball downplayed President Donald Trump's involvement in getting his son and two other UCLA teammates released from China for their recent shoplifting arrest, Trump shot back that "I should have left them in jail."

UCLA freshmen basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested on Nov. 7 for allegedly stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins had been staying before leaving for Shanghai to face Georgia Tech.

On Sunday afternoon, Trump tweeted: "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!"
