WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump urged three suspended UCLA basketball players on Thursday to thank China's president for their freedom after they shoplifted in China.

The president's suggestion came a day after he tweeted: "Do you think the three UCLA basketball players will say thank you President Trump. They were headed for 10 years in jail."

The trio apologized that day and publicly thanked Trump, who was in Asia last week, for his help. On Thursday morning, the president sent another tweet: "You're welcome. go out and give a big Thank You to President Xi Jinping of China who made your release possible."
