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

An emotional Dennis Rodman praised President Trump on Monday and told CNN's Chris Cuomo that former President Obama wouldn't give him the time of day on his diplomacy efforts in N. Korea. I knew it. I was the only one.

Emblazoned in peace-themed PotCoin.com apparel - the freaky corporate sponsor of Rodman's visit for the impending North Korea-US talks - the five-times National Basketball Association champion touched down in Singapore round midnight on Monday, telling reporters he was here "to see what's going on", and hoping "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world". No one to see me. I couldn't even go home.

He declined to comment on whether he planned to meet Trump or Kim. That didn't deter me. Rodman exclaimed. "I'm so happy". The statement comes on the heels of Trump slamming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as dishonest and weak while instructing his advisors to back out of a joint statement he had agreed to with USA allies at the G-7 summit.

It's a surreal image: Dennis Rodman, standing in Singapore, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and sunglasses, giving an interview through tears as he cheers for President Donald Trump. "I still kept going back". While he wasn't an official part of the USA delegation or involved the meeting, Rodman, who has formed an unlikely relationship with the murderous North Korean dictator, was in Singapore to show his support for the meeting.


The next day, Rodman shared another photo, but this time it was of himself and Physical Culture and Sports Minister Kim Il Guk on Jun. 15, 2017. "I said to everybody, the door will open".

Earlier, Rodman told reporters at Changi airport that he came to Singapore "to see what's going on" and that he hopes "that things turn out to be well for everyone in the world".

"We have really put ourselves on the line to reach out to North Korea and they have been so gracious to me, my family and the United States".

Rodman most recently traveled to North Korea a year ago as a private citizen. He has made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power.
