Trump trolled 3 UCLA basketball on Twitter, claiming he saved them from โ€œ10 years in prisonโ€ for shoplifting sunglasses in China. ESPN spoke to multiple sources who said the players faced only 1-2 week sentences. Whose version do you believe? (link)

Too bad we will never actually know because they were brought back home instead of facing the repercussions for their actions

Clearly ESPN needs to read the law to the masses. In China, it very much depends upon how much you took and how it is handled by the store and judiciary.

Either answer therefore, could be correct

Come on. ESPN? They’ve got about as much credibility as fox or cnn.

ESPN is garbage and I don't trust their reporting, they stole over 1000 worth of goods, that is a multi year (possibly 10) sentence in china

Lol. This question is a joke right? ESPN plainly made that up. Not even going to link to the 100+ other sources that validate Trumps claim.

ESPN had the audacity to bring up this and challenge trump on this, but DIDNT EVEN cover the original story - b/c it made Trump look good.

Look below to start. Even CNN acknowledged it would be years

But you’re right, a 100+ MSM won’t say something positive about Trump even if true.

Here’s a 3-10 estimate from a yahoo sports analyst quoting a legal expert. You can’t claim that trump made this up.

Amnesty international legal expert saying they’d have to wait for more than 30 days just for the indictment.

Okay, so here’s cnn saying 3-10 years. Can you fault President Trump for saying the same? What you should really ask is whether we trust ESPN or cnn more.๐Ÿ˜‚
