A US official told the Washington Post that Xi promised Trump he would look into the case and make sure the players would be treated fairly.

Trump will return home and say the trip was a huge success, while Xi will believe the home field advantage really works. ESPN reported last Friday that police have surveillance footage of the trio committing the crimes in three stores in the high-end shopping center.

UCLA has declined to comment beyond its initial statement released Wednesday, in which the university said it was aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou and was cooperating fully with local authorities.

A USA official speaking to Nakamura on the condition of anonymity said that the case is proceeding towards a resolution with reduced charges in the matter. Trump lamented that the U.S.is "so far behind" China, while Xi simply noted that the Pacific has room for both countries.

Xi promised to look into the case, according to the report.

According to Nakamura, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed to him via email that Trump personally reached out to Jinping.

The State Department typically handles cases of Americans arrested overseas. Reportedly, the Ball family will open a pop-up store in Hong Kong on Tuesday (Nov. 14). They made no public mention of the UCLA case.

"Trump learned about the details of the case from aides, including [Chief of Staff John] Kelly, said the official familiar with the internal discussions".
