Trump, who is the president of the United States, became involved, as leaders of countries often do when their citizens are involved in crimes in other countries. Trump said in two tweets. Their arrest coincided with Trump's visit to China, and the players were detained at their hotel. "Be careful, there are many pitfalls on the long and winding road of life!"
