LeVar Burton Is Getting All of LaVar Ball's Trump Heat

LeVar Burton Is Getting All of LaVar Ball's Trump Heat

On the other hand, Schwartz said, "if [Trump] felt fear, he always felt aggression", which Schwartz uses to explain why Trump also felt "a need to put them down".

It is unclear whether the president meant to directly reply to Sargent with his tweet.

In his piece published Wednesday, Sargent argued that Trump "goes out of his way to attack prominent African Americans", including Ball and professional football athletes.

The interview concluded on a festive note, with LaVar Ball wishing Trump a happy holiday. Trump wrote. "This issue is killing your league!"

To which the president replied the following day with his campaign slogan.

As for who had helped free LiAngelo Ball from China, the president said: "IT WAS ME".

The stakes were high for Ball, as a shoplifting conviction in China could result in a sentence of three to 10 years.

Tony Schwartz, who co-wrote "The Art of The Deal" with Trump, said in a CNN interview that Trump's past views on African Americans may play a role in his current behavior. What was he over there for?

"It's not like he was in the USA and said, OK, there's three kids in China, I need to go over there and get them?"

"Whether or not he read it, which seems unlikely, I hope he will consider that many Americans are regularly dismayed and angered by his race-baiting and obviously relish of racial provocation". Now, you're in China - you're this big! That wasn't the thought process, right?

Trump's biographer and former ghostwriter aren't the only ones to have noticed this trend of the president's. At one point, he said he should've let LiAngelo Ball and his teammates stay in jail.

In his Twitter posts, Trump also said, "Lavar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during thanksgiving with your son in China, but no National Basketball Association contract to support you".

Trump has responded with several tweets, calling Ball an "ungrateful fool", "poor man's Don King" and saying he should've left his son in jail.

"It is true that in some of these cases, Trump was attacked or at least criticized first". Trump claimed he was responsible for getting the incident resolved and the players back home.

Myeshia Johnson said that during the call, the president told her that her husband "knew what he signed up for".

Last month, Trump drew criticisms over his condolence call to the widow of Sgt.
