Trump Asks China's President To Help Resolve UCLA Shoplifting Case

U.S. President Trump Visits China

According to the Washington Post, Trump personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help resolve the situation.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said early Tuesday that the Bruins players, detained November 7, are on a plane bound for Los Angeles, adding that the "matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities".

Cody Riley, Jalen Hill and LiAngelo Ball are finally coming home.

"Trump learned about the details of the case from aides, including [Chief of Staff John] Kelly, said the official familiar with the internal discussions". You are talking about long prison sentences. Trump described Xi's response as "terrific".

Trump brought attention to the legal matter to Xi during his two-day stay in Beijing. Trump was in the Philippines capital for a summit of Asian leaders.

UCLA, one of the most storied names in United States college basketball with 11 men's NCAA championships, won Saturday's game in Shanghai 63-60 without the three players.

Days before the game in Shanghai, the Bruins were in Hangzhou to visit the headquarters of Alibaba, the e-commerce giant that sponsored Saturday's contest.

They were released on bail early Wednesday morning, ESPN reported.

"I'm just glad it's resolved and that they're on the way home safely", he told Reuters by telephone from an Anti-Defamation League Sports Leadership Council event in San Francisco.

Initial reports suggested the players could remain in China for up to two months, depending on whether Chinese authorities chose to pursue an arrest, which would spark an investigation. "Both Athletics and the Office of Student Conduct will review this incident and guide any action with respect to the involved students". He said such proceedings would be confidential.

"We take seriously any violations of the law", wrote Chancellor Gene Block in an email addressed to the campus community.
