Ball's son, LiAngelo, was recently released by Chinese authorities after they accused him and two other UCLA basketball players of shoplifting while the team was on a visit to the Asian country.

Don't tell me nothing.

"Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal", Trump tweeted. In response, Sargent retweeted Trump's tweet with a comment: "Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. President".

Trump told LaVar Ball that shoplifting is "a really big deal, especially in China".
