Donald Trump Continues Spat With LaVar Ball, Calls Him ‘Ungrateful Fool’ And ‘Don King’ Without Hair
Trump initially had said the often mouthy Ball did not thank him for freeing the younger LiAngelo from a long jail sentence in China. The father, in turn, said he has nothing to personally thank the President for.
Trump took to Twitter to express his feelings on the matter- and his thoughts about LaVar Ball as an individual.
It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 22, 2017
LiAngelo Ball and his two other teammates have been suspended from the UCLA basketball team after the incident, which his father wants to move on from. He described it as a ‘little incident’ from his otherwise well-behaved son.
Trump disagrees and insists that he personally is responsible for the release.
