President Trump personally asked his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping for help in dealing with the three UCLA basketball players arrested for shoplifting in China, The Washington Post reported on Monday.

Trump brought up the matter in talks with Xi on Saturday in Beijing and the Chinese leader promised the players from UCLA would be treated fairly and expeditiously, The Washington Post reported.

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.

After Trump raised the matter with the Chinese president, Xi promised to look into the case and ensure that the players are treated fairly and expeditiously, a USA official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation told the Washington Post.

Ball, Riley and Hill were taken to the police station in Hangzhou, where they were kept for a number of hours, according to ESPN.

Surveillance video of the players appeared to show them shoplifting from stores inside of the high-end shopping complex including Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. According to the Post's source, the charges have been reduced and the case is proceeding to a resolution.

Ball, the second son of outspoken and high-profile sports dad, LaVar Ball, is set to begin his freshman season at UCLA.

Once the UCLA basketball players' legal cases are resolved and they return to the United States, Trump likely will tell the world about his role in accelerating the timeline for their release. The Los Angeles Lakers selected his brother, Lonzo Ball, with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
