UCLA Basketball Players Released From China

UCLA Basketball Players Released From China

The gratitude was expressed after Trump tweeted earlier on Wednesday, 'Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?

Three UCLA men's basketball players detained in China appear to be returning to the United States and they may have president Trump to thank.

According to Pac-12 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott, "the matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities".

The team was in China for their season opener against Georgia Tech when the alleged theft happened.

The trio were held on suspicion of stealing from a Louis Vuitton store and later freed on bail but ordered to remain in the picturesque Chinese city.

"The basketball players, by the way - I know a lot of people are asking - I will tell you, when I heard about it two days ago, I had a great conversation with President Xi", Trump said via the Washington Post.

"President Xi has been terrific on that subject", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One, bound for Honolulu.

Trump learned about the details of the cases from aides, including Kelly, said the official familiar with the internal discussions.

"Before I thank everybody who worked so incredibly hard helping us returning home safely, I want to thank the Chinese government and the police for taking care of us". "In this particular case, both Athletics and the Office of Student Conduct will review this incident and guide any action with respect to the involved students". Neither made any mention of the UCLA players' arrests.

"I want to be clear that we take seriously any violations of the law", he said. "Such proceedings are confidential, which limits the specific information that can be shared".
