Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill were arrested on November 7 for allegedly stealing merchandise from a Louis Vuitton store near the Hangzhou hotel the team was staying in.

During a state visit to China, US President Donald Trump personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to look into the shoplifting case of UCLA Bruin rookie LiAngelo Ball and his teammates in China, according to a report by The Washington Post.

Trump raised the issue with Xi during a dinner held during the US leader's November 8-10 state visit to Beijing, said the official, who spoke to Reuters in Manila.

YouTube is now blocking most of those videos with a combination of automatic and human reviewers, the New York Times reported Sunday.

The UCLA team had been in China for the season opener against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Saturday, which UCLA won 63-60.

"What they did was unfortunate", Trump said. Kelly remains in contact with Chinese authorities, and the anonymous USA official told the newspaper that charges against the three players have been reduced and that the case is headed toward a resolution.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed to The Post that Trump raised the matter with Xi. Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for China's Foreign Ministry, said the case had been reported to United States authorities, saying, "China is handling this case in accordance with the law, and will guarantee the rights in accordance with the law, for those involved in this case". UCLA is one of the top basketball programs in the country, and the Ball family has become well known in the sports world, including LiAngelo's outspoken father, LaVar Ball.

Trump's first official visit to the region was billed as a push to step up global pressure on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program and reduce US trade deficits with South Korea, Japan and China. The president spent two days in China with Xi, discussing North Korea and trade relations among other issues.

Three UCLA basketball stars may be left in China as allegations against them for shoplifting go through the legal system.

Trump learned about the details of the cases from aides, including Kelly, said the official familiar with the internal discussions.
