President Trump reacts as he does the

Trump talked to Xi about the arrests during a state visit last week to Beijing, part of the president's five-nation Asian trip, The Washington Post reported.

LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill - were arrested last week while their team was in Hangzhou ahead of the team's season opener in Shanghai.

Share this article: LiAngelo Ball is one of three UCLA basketball team players being held in a suspected shoplifting investigation in China.

They were released early on Wednesday, but are barred from leaving China and confined to a luxury hotel in Hangzhou pending legal proceedings, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

Xi has promised to look into the case and ensure, as Trump has asked, that the players be treated fairly and expeditiously, a US official, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation, told The Post.


Chinese authorities told the Post that the charges have been downgraded and the case against them is on a fast track toward resolution.

Chinese authorities detained the UCLA freshmen for questioning about allegations of shoplifting before a recent game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.

"I'm certainly disappointed that we don't have three UCLA students here to compete in the game today, given that they were involved in an incident that's being investigated in Hangzhou", Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said Saturday before the game. The athletes were unable to play in the game, and they remain in China awaiting their fate while the rest of their team returned to the USA days ago. The two leaders did not speak about it publicly, even though the arrests made headlines worldwide.

"Hopefully, everything is going to work out, and I know they're very grateful because they were told exactly what happened", he said.

"We're doing fine", Carlson told the Times as the players, wearing Bruins workout gear, slipped into the elevator behind him. The family is scheduled to leave Sunday morning for Hong Kong, where the family's Big Baller Brand is opening a pop-up shop on Tuesday.
