The three suspended UCLA players held a press conference yesterday where they issued apologies for shoplifting and thanked Donald Trump for stepping in…after 45 begged for it. Go inside to see their press conference, and find out what LiAngelo Ball’s dad LaVar Ball had to say about the shoplifting scandal inside…

The three UCLA players who were detained in China for shoplifting are now speaking out about the scandal. In a press conference held yesterday (November 15th), LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley admitted to stealing and issued sincere apologies for it.

Before the conference, it was announced that all three players have been suspended indefinitely, adding they will not travel or suit up for home games.

“I’d like to start off by saying sorry for stealing from the stores in China. I didn’t exercise my best judgment and I was wrong for that,” LiAngelo said during the conference. He said he’s a young man, but it doesn’t excuse his “stupid decision.” He said this incident doesn’t define who he is and his family raised him better than that.

Jalen and Cody also issued apologies to everyone they hurt for their “stupid” decisions. All three thanked Donald Trump for stepping in and helping to bring them home.

Check out the press conference below:

Oh, and 45 wanted EVERYONE to know he had something to do with bringing them home. He tweeted he wanted an apology from the UCLA basketball players for stepping in. Peep thos tweets HERE.

After the conference, 45 hopped on Twitter to tell the college basketball players that they are welcome and urged them to thank President Xi Jinping of China. Peep the tweets:






LiAngelo's dad, LaVar Bell, has remained mum about his son's shoplifting scandal up until now:

Photogs caught up with the Big Baller Brand honcho after he touched down at LAX with his youngest son, LaMelo Ball. When asked if he had a message for Trump, LaVar plugged his Big Baller Brand. He then said he believes everything will be fine. When asked if he would meet with Trump to say Thank You, he responded, "We're gonna run into each other. We'll be good."

Oh.  Peep the clip above.

By the way, if Trump truly did this out of the goodness of his heart and US-China relations, hopefully he can help Detroit football player Wendell Brown who has been jailed in China for the last 14 months after defending himself from perceived attacks.
