5 things you need to know now

In a series of tweets fired off before dawn, the president complained yet again that LaVar Ball, father of LiAngelo Ball, hasn't given him credit for the release of his son and two other UCLA basketball players after they were accused of shoplifting while in China for a basketball game.

"First of all, his father (LiAngelo Ball) is a tall black man and I think Trump is half awed and half frightened by black people and his only way of dealing with them is to attack them", Schwartz said.

Trump responded by calling Ball a "poor man's Don King but without the hair" and an "ungrateful fool" in subsequent tweets.

The president included: "Wash, you might have spent Thanksgiving for the next 5-10 years with your son inside China, with no National Basketball Association contract to back you up".

"But keep in mind, LaVar", Trump had written, "stealing is NOT a small thing."

"It wasn't like he was in the USA and said, 'Okay, there's three kids in China, I need to go over there and get them, '" Ball said.

Former Wimbledon champion Jana Novotna dies aged 49
Two-time Wimbledon champion and compatriot Petra Kvitova said Novotna had inspired her and supported her during her career. Novotna famously cried on the Duchess of Kent's shoulder in 1993 after losing the women's singles final at Wimbledon.

Tweeting from his Mar a Lago estate in Florida before daybreak, Trump said, "The ungratefulness is something I've never seen before". You know, you're talking about very long prison sentences. Period. I don't care. "It's a blessing to have your kids back home...just be thankful that your kids are safe, he had something to do with your kid getting home".

LiAngelo Ball and two UCLA teammates were released after a brief detention in China while Trump was visiting the country.

Trump said last week that he had personally intervened in the case with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, asking the Chinese leader to help resolve the case.

"You're a has been actor with a thief for a son and Trump is the president of the United States". In a recent interview with CNN, the eldest Ball said that he won't thank Trump because he didn't do anything to help. The other UCLA players involved in the global incident were Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, who are also black.

Many people have opinions about the current president, but few of them can say that they actually have any idea how his brain really works. "When will the highly paid Commissioner finally get tough and smart?"

President Donald Trump is afraid of black people so he attacks them, according to the ghostwriter of his best-selling book "The Art of the Deal".
