Yes. I mean, if it were our foreign secretary, he'd probably have convinced the Chinese to execute them instead of just locking them up - see: Boris Johnson and Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe
Of course, that doesn't change the fact that both Trump and the athletes are complete fucktards.
I would of course thank him, but do I need to make a Twitter account and make a public spectacle? I would much rather call him or write a letter expressing my gratitude.
The thing about Trump is that he thinks he should be sainted for anything he does, like it's great he got them released, but then he gets to the White House and he goes on Twitter demanding an apology. He just acts like a kid who thinks he should be rewarded for making his bed.
Any president would have done the same thing. I'm glad he did it, but holy shit he needs to stop sucking his own dick
This trio was dumb enough to break the law in a communist country. that is known to be hard line. Rather than help them get off. Trump should have made them be responsible for their actions. The only reason he interceded was that one has such a media profile (ie Ball)
And the poser has zero relevance to where you sit on the political spectrum
If any U. S. President was to get me out of another Country and avoid going to prison in that Country I would thank him beyond words and someway show him a token of appreciation for sure.
In my opinion that character named Lavar Ball is one ungrateful straight piece of shit that is not worth the space he takes up and fuck him!!!
I'd thank the devil himself for that. Doesn't mean I'd worship him though.
I would have preferred he let these freaks do their time in a Chinese prison. He could have interceded on behalf of Wendell Brown who apparently did nothing wrong. These freaks went to another country and knowingly broke the law. They should face the maximum punishment in that nation for doing so.
In this situation, what exactly is the "liberal" or "conservative" thing to do?
I don't like Trump at all. I don't think he should have interceded to help the basketball players in China. I would have said the same thing if Obama was still president. If you commit a crime in a foreign country then you should pay for the crime. Those basketball players knew what they were doing and they knew that they were breaking the law. i don't feel sorry for them one little bit.
Yes. God Bless Trump
Y'know, if he did that for me i'd be like 'Awh, he's kind of a cunt, but I guess I don't need to be the one to notice that aloud right now' & i'd just thank him for doing me such a favor & try to keep my head down about it-so as not to give him the positive press he feeds on.
didn't vote but of course i'd thank him.
but i also don't think he should have let them get out punishment. 10 years is too far but they should've at least had to do some sort public service or something... hold a basketball camp for kids or something
I'm not a liberal, but I do disagree with a lot of his "positions" as a free market conservative. However, if he were to do what he did to for the UCLA players for me, I would certainly thank him. Will I start supporting him, no, but I would think better of him as a person. I can think well of a person without agreeing with them on politics. That idea seems to be lost in our age of polarization.
Me personally? Not really. I mean this is a question if saving me from 10 years in prison redeems his previous and future actions which I dont think it does. There is a saying that "One good deed doesn't redeem a man of a lifetime of wickedness" which applies quite beautifully in this case. The fact that Trump seams to think only the most recent thing he ever do has meaning just shows his manipulative personality and character flaw.
lol! all of y'all are such goddamn hypocrites! it's fucking hilarious! :D :D :D :D :D
Yes. God Bless Trump
Those guys are lucky. China has a 99.2% conviction rate. They were definitely going to jail.
I'd get on my knees for him if he saved me from ten years of prison lol.
Most libtards would be ungrateful.
You know they wouldn't. They're too busy labeling 150 million of us while SWEARING they're "not like that!" They need to fall off a cliff without a parachute. A cliff in the Andes preferably.
at the moment he is trying to get a brit extradited to the states. although the kid committed his internet hacking here in the uk so should be tried here with a max sentance of 18months, trump wants him in your courts where he faces 99years. he is a young stupid middle class liberal elite kid who made a mistake, not a twat with an automatic machine gun. #laurilove
Let me help you with the options you should've wrote down: Option 1: Yes; Option 2: No.
Yes, I would thank him, as I believe the UCLA students did. Lavar Ball is a nut-case, and it speaks to Trump's own intelligence level and sanity that he feels the need to engage with him. A man's worth is determined by his enemies.
If it was me, sure.
But in all honesty people are allowed to openly say whatever they want... it's part of our constitution and you are a fool to think otherwise.
I'd be thankful to anyone who saved me, doesn't mean I agree with the guy.
You know these liberals on here who said that he shouldn't have intervened are just talking out of their ass. If he had not intervened... they would have crucified him for that. He could find the cure for cancer and would still bash him. Pathetic.
Sure. If someone does something nice for you, it's good to thank them. You can thank someone without liking them or making a big deal out of it
I would thank him for (in a rare happenstance) doing his job as any leader would do for their citizens.
Is Trumps behaviour so poor that we have to fall at his feet for doing something he is supposed to do?
I'm not a trump lover, but he should have let them stay in jail. Sports players beat women and always break the law with zero consequences simply because they play sports. They should have been made an example out of. Only an idiot would break the law in China and think they can get away with it bc they play sports. No one outside of america gaf if you play sports or not. You are not above the law.
The type of character that would steal in the first place, should not be saved. I would have let them do the time, I believe in consequences for actions. So I wouldn't be in that situation in the first place. Even of they were my sons I would let them go right to jail regardless of if the president begged for them. It shows his character to condone such behavior. Even if he had bargained for their time to be lessened, they should not have been let free. I teach my children that their actions have consequences. And before anyone says I'm racist... I'm of African descent, or what Americans call "black".
I would thank anyone who kept me from going to jail. It dosen't mean I agree with everything that they say or do.
The 4th Amendment rights do not apply when you're not on US soil, and we detain many foreigners in US facilities
Thank him for what? I didn't steal anything that was them their parents should as well as them thank him but not me... made no difference in my life if they went to jail or not
