Regardless of your opinion of him, President Trump accomplished what UCLA and the PAC 12 failed to do and arranged for the release of the Hangzhou Three (LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley):

LiAngelo Ball and his two UCLA basketball teammates were freed from Chinese custody early Tuesday after President Donald Trump intervened on their behalf.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill had all boarding a Delta flight home after being detained for over a week. They slipped out of possibly serving up to ten years for allegedly stealing from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China.
