The United States' National Basketball Association's crisis with China over a pro-Hong Kong tweet reached the White House Wednesday where the US president accused the coaches of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors for "pandering to China."

Speaking on the matter for the first time, Donald Trump said that the two sides would have to "work out their own situation" but came down hard on Gregg Popovich and Steve Kerr, coaches of the Spurs and Warriors respectively. EFE-EPA
