(TSX / STATS) -- President Donald Trump criticized LaVar Ball again for downplaying the president's role in bringing home three UCLA basketball players, including Ball's son, after a recent shoplifting incident in China during a team trip.

Earlier this week in his ongoing dispute with Ball, Trump said of the freshmen players: "I should have left them in jail."

On Wednesday morning, two days after Ball appeared on CNN, Trump called him as an "ungrateful fool" and "just a poor man's version of Don King, but without the hair" in a series of tweets.
