Donald Trump Asks China for Help with UCLA, LiAngelo Ball Situation

13 Novembre 2017

Trump arrived in China on a diplomatic visit one day after the UCLA players were arrested.

While a resolution to the legal issues seems to be moving toward a conclusion, they will no doubt still face punishment upon return to the USA, with a lengthy suspension and dismissal from the team as possibilities.

President Trump personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help resolve the case of three UCLA men's basketball players arrested for shoplifting. The players could reportedly stay in the country for a "week or two".

Hyderabad Metro Rail is considered to be the world's largest Metro Rail project in the PPP mode with Rs 20,000 crore investment. Official communication on Prime Minister's participation is awaited, he said, hoping that it would come soon.

The Post cited sources with knowledge of the situation, and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed in an email that Trump raised the matter with Xi.

The Post reports that Xi promised Trump that he'd look into the shoplifting situation and ensure the Bruins are treated fairly by the Chinese criminal justice system. ESPN reported last Friday that police have surveillance footage of the trio committing the crimes in three stores in the high-end shopping center. According to the Post's source, the charges have been reduced and the case is proceeding to a resolution.

The State Department typically takes the lead on cases involving U.S. citizens who are arrested overseas, and the U.S. Embassy in Beijing is aware of the case, officials said. UCLA was in China for a basketball tournament and the players did not play in the Bruins' victory over Georgia Tech after authorities made the arrests.
