Donald Trump Rumors
Commissioner Stern also noted his thoughts on Ingraham: “I’m very familiar with that particular group (Fox News), and I’m not a big fan of Laura Ingraham, but she and Lebron are entitled to their own opinions.” “I just think the President is jealous because Lebron has many more social media followers than he does,” he added.
Dan Gelston: Dennis Rodman to AP “Well done President Trump. You’re on the way to a historical meeting no US President has ever done. I’m looking forward to bringing more basketball diplomacy to North Korea in the upcoming months. Please send my regards to Marshall Kim Jong-un and his family”
Charles Barkley hosted Saturday Night Live… so there was more to see than just Weekend Update and Migos performing. Barkley used his opening monologue time to say LeBron James and other basketball players should not just “shut up and dribble” and talked about athletes not just sticking to sports.
Donald Trump first found out about the situation, according to The New York Times, when members of his staff saw it on CNN just before Trump’s dinner with the president of China, Xi Jinping, in Beijing on Thursday. Trump would later tell reporters on Tuesday, Nov. 14, that he first heard about the situation “two days ago,” at which point he personally asked the Chinese president to look into the matter. The White House did not respond to requests to clear up the timeline, but UCLA sources say they didn’t become aware of Trump’s involvement until Sunday when White House chief of staff John Kelly called the players to say that Trump was intervening on their behalf and that he was optimistic of a quick resolution. A Pac-12 source, who was not present for the actual call from Kelly, confirmed the UCLA sources’ description of the timeline. “The situation was already resolved by the time we heard about Trump’s involvement,” one team source said. “That’s not to take away from the fact that he got involved, but the players already had their passports back and their flights booked to go home Tuesday night when Gen. Kelly called the players.”
Ball, Hill and Riley, along with Alford and Guerrero addressed the media at Pauley Pavilion during a news conference but did not take any questions. Everyone thanked Trump for his involvement. Guerrero also singled out Kelly for calling the players. While the students wrote their own statements, they were encouraged by school officials to thank Trump. Prior to the news conference, Trump tweeted, “Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!” One UCLA source stressed that the school can’t know for sure everything that Trump and Kelly did behind the scenes, so the school felt a thank you was in order. “It just seemed like the right thing to do,” the source said. “Everyone wanted to move on and put this behind us. Why get into it with the president? Let’s not create another story by not thanking him. He had already tweeted about getting a thank you the morning of the press conference, so thank him and move on.”
