UCLA players will be disciplined after China incident

 

( Daily Mail ) Three UCLA basketball players detained in China on suspicion of shoplifting returned home, where they may be disciplined by the school as a result of the international scandal.

Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley arrived at Los Angeles International Airport late Tuesday afternoon after a 12-hour flight from Shanghai.

They ignored reporters’ shouted questions while making their way through a horde of media outside and getting into a van that took off from the departure level.

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said the matter ‘has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities’.

The players were detained in Hangzhou for questioning following allegations of shoplifting last week before the 23rd-ranked Bruins beat Georgia Tech in their season-opening game in Shanghai as part of the Pac-12 China game. The rest of the UCLA team returned home last Saturday.

CHINESE PEOPLE: TRUMP IS MORE HONEST THAN OBAMA

What Beijing residents are saying about President Trump

  • “He’s an interesting person, more honest than Obama”
  • “He has an outgoing personality and hates losing … I think his mental age is quite young.”
  • He is no politician and has big ego … so his honesty is, in a disrespectful way, a bit self-righteous and ignorant of other people’s feelings.”

 

Trump is currently in Beijing on his visit to China as president, and the first visit of a foreign head of state to China since October’s Communist Party Congress, in which President Xi Jinping greatly consolidated his power over the country.

As China is a communist dictatorship, there is no guarantee that the opinions issued to the South China Morning Post are earnest. They echo the nation’s government-run media significantly.

“He’s an interesting person, more honest than Obama,” said Fei Danyang, a 42-year-old financial analyst, according to the newspaper. “He is no politician and has big ego … so his honesty is, in a disrespectful way, a bit self-righteous and ignorant of other people’s feelings.”

Fei joked that watching tensions between Democrats and the Trump administration was fun, saying, “It’s like we [in China] are just like watching a fire from across a river. The chaos is theirs. The more dramatic it gets, the more fun it is to watch.”

The Chinese government has repeatedly used its state media to claim that the West is in a state of “chaos,” as opposed to the “stability” of their communist tyranny.

64-year-old Li Dongsheng, a retired teacher at a military academy, told the newspaper that she liked Trump’s style.

 

“As a 71-year-old man, he is spirited and energetic. He pushes beyond his own boundaries and he takes up new challenges. I admire him for that.” Li is quoted as saying. “He has an outgoing personality and hates losing … I think his mental age is quite young.”

Posted on Updated on

 

( Fox News ) President Donald Trump is touring the sprawling Forbidden City compound in the heart of Beijing.

The 15th century compound was the imperial palace for several dynasties. Access was forbidden to all but the imperial family and those who had business with them.

Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) and their wives walked through the Gate of Supreme Harmony and gazed across a sprawling yet deserted courtyard. They all wore overcoats against the chill. After a guide explained the sites, the couples walked down a flight of stairs and into the courtyard.

They posed for photos, strolled toward the Palace of Supreme Peace and climbed another long flight of stairs.
