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

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

"I think the fact that Trump would understand that the people of North Korea have a heart, they have soul, charisma, and they love each other", added Rodman.

Potcoin also sponsored Rodman's June 2017 visit to North Korea as well, so this latest sponsored trip is part of an ongoing relationship with Dennis Rodman and his efforts to reach out to Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.

In an emotional interaction with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rodman revealed he had received a call from the White House prior to the summit in Singapore.

"I tried to do that to Obama, and he didn't even give me the time of day", he said. "I just fell in love with the country".

Rodman also goes back years with Mr Trump and appeared on his Celebrity Apprentice show. I showed my loyalty and trustworthiness to this country. "We just need the doors to be opened so we can start fresh", he said.

The meeting Rodman was referring to came back in March 2013. Kim is due to depart Singapore on Tuesday afternoon, a source told Reuters.

Kim has previously been accused of publicly assassinating his half brother with a nerve agent and executing his uncle by firing squad while threatening to attack the USA and others with nuclear weapons. "I don't want to do war".

"When I got home, I got so many death threats". "We sat down for lunch and he said: 'If you go back to the president of the United States, I'd be willing to talk to him".

He openly wept as he discussed his tortured relationship with North Korea and its brutal dictator. "I couldn't even go home ..." I had no one to hear me, no one to see me, but I knew it. There was nobody else. I took everything everyone came at me and I'm still standing.

"It's a great day".

Speaking from Singapore and wearing a Make America Great Again cap, Rodman told CNN that a White House staffer called him to tell him the president was proud of him. "The Marshall of North Korea (Kim Jong-un) trusts me". Whatever the outcome, by bringing together the hot topics of Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un, marijuana legalization, and cryptocurrency, Rodman may have created the most emblematic image of mainstream news in 2018.

It was a learning he passed on to Trump as well.

"[He should] let Kim Jong-un see him really emotional".
