Trump asked about the arrests during his two-day visit to China last week, which happened to begin one day after the three players were arrested for allegedly shoplifting sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store. Theft of this nature is taken much more harshly in China than it is in the United States, and these players are finding that out the hard way.

Ball, who is the brother of Los Angeles Lakers rising star rookie point guard Lonzo Ball and the son of the outspoken Big Baller Brand founder LaVar Ball, now remains in China with his two teammates.

After Trump brought up the players' arrests, Xi said he would look into the case, and ensured that the three would be treated fairly.

David Nakamura of the Washington Post reports that Trump personally reached out to Jinping in an effort to help expedite the proceedings. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Trump and Xi talked about the case.

Citing sources familiar with the situation, ESPN's Arash Markazi reported Saturday the UCLA basketball players are expected to remain in China for "a week or two".

Police arrived early Tuesday morning at the Hyatt Regency in Hangzhou, where both UCLA and Georgia Tech were staying ahead of their matchup in Shanghai.

The three did not play in the game and the UCLA team has returned to the U.S. Trump was later notified of the UCLA players' detainment through his aides. As he was leaving the hotel, LaVar Ball downplayed LiAngelo's arrest, telling ESPN: "He'll be fine". LiAngelo Ball's family is in Hong Kong marketing $495 Big Baller Brand shoes, according to a tweet from LaVar Ball.
