Dennis Rodman Tears Up While Discussing Trump's Meeting with Kim Jong

Former US basketball star Dennis Rodman wept during an interview in Singapore on Tuesday as he discussed unprecedented talks between the North Korean and US leaders in the city-state aimed at trying to end a nuclear standoff.

Rodman, who became something of a cheerleader for Pyongyang after visiting in 2013, arrived in Singapore on Monday ahead of the summit.

Rodman described Kim as a "big kid" who wants to see the world and he expressed hope that the two leaders will make progress. "This is a great day for everybody". "We sat down for lunch and he said: 'If you go back to the president of the U.S., I'd be willing to talk to him". Trump also said Rodman was "either drunk or on drugs (delusional)" and was "glad I fired him on Apprentice!".

"Kim Jong Un is not a dumb man", Rodman, one of the only Americans to have built a relationship with Kim, stressed.

The White House has since said that he will play no role in the discussions.

"I'm out of it". Trafficking, import or export of more than 500 grams could result in the death penalty.

"Donald Trump is going to do a great job".


He was speaking just moments after Kim and Trump made history as they shook hands in Singapore.

Rodman went on to say that he took so much criticism from a controversial 2014 trip to the Hermit Kingdom, that he gets weepy even thinking about it. Rodman sang "Happy Birthday" at the time to Kim and seemed unaware of that nation's very bad human rights record.

This trip, like the last one, is sponsored by potcoin.com, the crypto-currency provider for the legal marijuana industry, Rodman said on Twitter.

He added: "But I kept my head up high, brother". "I couldn't even go home ... I don't need to worry about the war stuff, I don't know anything about that".

"Obama didn't give me the time of day", Rodman said. "I don't want to do war", Rodman had quoted the North Korean leader as saying. As a matter of fact, according to Rodman, Trump even took the time to thank him - yes, thank him - for doing a "good job". "We don't need a miracle, we just need the doors to be open so we can start fresh and make this place a better world, baby, that's it".

In 2014, Mr Trump tweeted dismissively about the possibility that he and Rodman would someday travel to North Korea together.
