President Trump to LaVar Ball: I Should Have Left Your Kid in Jail

President Donald J. Trump responded to the bombastic Big Baller Brand founder LaVar Ball on Twitter Sunday afternoon saying he should have left Ball’s son, a UCLA basketball star, in a Chinese jail.

The players promptly said thank you. It seemed as if the saga was over. 

That is until LaVar Ball, who may be the only person in the world more outspoken and more proud of his last name than President Trump is, issued an insult towards the president yesterday. 

LaVar Ball downplayed his son’s shoplifting incident in China, as well as President Donald Trump’s involvement in getting LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA basketball players back to the United States earlier this week.

“Who?” LaVar Ball told ESPN on Friday, when asked about Trump’s involvement in the matter. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”
This led to the inevitable; Twitter and the internet predicting a Donald Trump v. LaVar Ball show down.

Sunday afternoon, President Trump delivered his response. President Trump’s aforementioned tweet is already getting plenty of responses on Twitter.

It is unclear what, if any, political or business ramifications there will be to President Trump or the Big Baller Brand from this fiasco.
