Trump talks to Xi to resolve case of UCLA players arrested in China
On Wednesday morning, Mr Trump tweeted: "Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?"
After Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill read statements acknowledging their role in an global incident that caused President Donald Trump to take credit for intervening on their behalf, UCLA basketball coach Steve Alford announced their indefinite suspensions.
Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott, the leader of the western USA collegiate athletic conference, said that the matter had "been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities". They were placed under house arrest at the luxury hotel and were not permitted to play in UCLA's season-opening game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Friday.
The three students, all freshmen, were taken in for questioning by police about alleged shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store.
During his visit to Bejing last week, Fox News confirmed that Trump personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help resolve the case.
The three players are expected to speak to the media Wednesday in Los Angeles. You know, you're talking about very long prison sentences.
"What they did was unfortunate".

"We are grateful for the role that our Chinese hosts played, and for the courtesy and professionalism of the local authorities", Scott said.
Chinese authorities have surveillance footage of the players in the store, and the three could be required to remain in China for another week. Pac-12 is the college athletic conference in which UCLA participates.
"I want to be clear that we take seriously any violations of the law", he said.
UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said in a statement that the university's Athletics and Office of Student Conduct would review the incident and determine any potential discipline.
