Donald Trump  just refuses to let up on his war of words with Lavar Ball. The two have been trading verbal jabs since the weekend, and Ball’s recent appearance on CNN seems to have added more fuel to the fire. Today, Trump tweeted that LaVar is “just a poor man’s version of Don King, but without the hair.” He also added that LaVar is an “ungrateful fool.”


With his tweets, the president of the United States continued an ongoing feud with LaVar Ball, the brash father of Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball and two other NBA hopefuls.

n an interview on CNN on Tuesday night, LaVar Ball refused to thank Trump for helping to ensure that his son LiAngelo, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley — all freshmen on the UCLA basketball team — returned home safely after being arrested for shoplifting from three stores near their hotel in Hangzhou, China during the Bruins’ trip overseas for a game against Georgia Tech.

During the 23-minute interview he addressed the situation with Trump, saying, “I would have said thank you if he would have put (LiAngelo) on his plane and taken him home…there’s a lot of room on that plane.”

Let’s see if LaVar Ball will clap back at these latest Trump’s tweets.
