Trump tweets 'MAGA' in response to story that is critical of him

Trump tweets 'MAGA' in response to story that is critical of him”

All three apologized for their actions and thanked Trump for his role in securing their release, which occurred while the president was traveling in Asia.

Ball's son and two other players were arrested and accused of shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store in China during his team's weeklong trip to the country.

We got P at LAX and asked him about the whole fiasco, and he couldn't have been any clearer, saying he believes in God and that means he believes in showing gratitude, even to Trump.

Before performing his annual duties of pardoning a Thanksgiving Day turkey, the president responded Wednesday at 5:25 a.m. EDT by calling Ball "a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair" and an "ungrateful fool!"

'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, ' Trump added. "It wasn't like he was in the U.S. and said, 'OK, there's three kids in China".

"And who might represent corporate America better than Trump?"

Thank Trump Card #1

Chatman said he never imagined Ball would be as recognized as he is today.

"I had some things done, I talked to some people that did some things, too".

"It's not like he was in the USA and said, OK, there's three kids in China, I need to go over there and get them?" On the other hand, Schwartz said, "if [Trump] felt fear, he always felt aggression", which Schwartz uses to explain why Trump also felt "a need to put them down". "I think that if somebody help you, you be appreciative for it, that's it".

On November 15, Trump struck out at the Ball family on Twitter, asking: 'Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump?'

"You get that audience, which isn't a bunch of deplorables and won't be bothered by what he says", Durbin said.

No such thing as bad press and LaVar Ball is cashing in on that theory.
