Rodman weeps during interview on sidelines of Trump-Kim summit

Rodman weeps during interview on sidelines of Trump-Kim summit

Rodman explained to CNN host Chris Cuomo his relationship with Kim, and explained that former President Obama "didn't even give [him] the time of day".

"It is wonderful, it is awesome. when I went back home, I got so many death threats".

"Crazy Dennis Rodman is saying I wanted to go to North Korea with him. But I kept my head up". I knew things were doing to change. "I was the only one".

Rodman, who knows both Trump and Kim Jong Un, had high hopes for the meeting and told CNN US President Donald Trump would understand the people of North Korea "have a heart". "I don't see the politics of this whole situation", he added. This is not about Dennis Rodman being the greatest person in the world that leads these two people together.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman openly cried on television in a freaky meltdown over the US-North Korea summit. The two struck up an unlikely friendship over their shared love of basketball.

He went on to describe Kim as someone who loves taking selfies and is "a big kid, even though he's small". "I'm so happy", Rodman said after breaking down talking about death threats he received in the United States due to his conversations with Kim, someone Rodman has considered a friend. Rodman claimed the Obama had ignored his request. He declined to comment on whether he planned to meet Trump or Kim. "Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to", tweeted Trump.

He's also repeatedly expressed his support for a meeting between Trump and Kim - even offering to facilitate it or serve as an ambassador of sorts. White House and Trump himself had earlier said that former-basketball player wasn't invited for the summit. I was the only one.

Mr Rodman arrived in Singapore wearing a T-shirt promoting PotCoin, which has sponsored his travel to North Korea in the past. "I'm so happy", Rodman said, becoming emotional throughout the interview. He appeared on Trump's television show, "Celebrity Apprentice", and has made several trips to North Korea. In the interview with "GMA" co-anchor Michael Strahan, Rodman, who is often criticized for his cordial relationship with the North Korean leader, praised his improbable friend.

Rodman is one of the only Americans to have visited the hermit kingdom and is deeply invested in the country's future.
