Tearful Dennis Rodman says he 'took bullets' for Kim friendship

Tearful Dennis Rodman says he 'took bullets' for Kim friendship

The former National Basketball Association star first traveled February 2013 to North Korea for a documentary.

According to Rodman, Kim said he'd be "willing to talk" to Obama under certain conditions.

"At the same time, there needs to be a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to resolve North Korea's reasonable security concerns", he said.

Rodman says he tried to deliver the message to Obama, but was met with rejection.

During the most recent G7 Summit, Trump did express his optimism with the outcome of this meeting with Kim Jong-Un, stating that the North Korean leader "wants to do something great for his people". The two signed a joint statement reaffirming North Korea's commitment to giving up nuclear weapons.

"The UN Security Council resolutions that have been passed say that if North Korea respects and acts in accordance with the resolutions, then sanction measures can be adjusted, including to pause or remove the relevant sanctions", Mr Geng told a daily news briefing.

"Today is a great day for everybody", said Rodman, adding, "I'm so happy".

Rodman said he kept going back to North Korea because he "believed" in the country, despite many in the United States doubting and mocking him.

Rodman - a close friend of the supreme leader of the North Korea - ended up weeping during a TV interview on CNN.


His usual response when confronted with questions about North Korea's oppressive regime was that he's not a politician, but merely a man who likes Kim and seeks peace.

White House officials have said that Rodman would play no official role in the diplomatic negotiations.

Trump writes on Twitter that "the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN" are "fighting hard to downplay the deal with North Korea".

"As the leader of the free world, we urge you to do everything in your power to ensure that those who paid the ultimate price for freedom during the Korean War are finally returned home", VFW head Keith Harman wrote.

"The president had seen some of your comments over the last several days, and he just wanted me to reach out and thank you for some of the positive things you said and appreciate you being helpful in this process". I knew it. I was the only one. "No hatred. No more hatred".

"He wasn't, but I like Dennis".

Rodman even said he "showed my loyalty and trustworthy to this country" by being present at the historic summit.

"We don't need a miracle".
