"When I got home, I got so many death threats". Trump also said Rodman was "either drunk or on drugs (delusional)" and was "glad I fired him on Apprentice!"

And he accused former US President Barack Obama of "not giving me the time of day". But I kept my head up high.

"I'm thanking Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and everybody who supported me through all these things".

"I just fell in love with [North Korea] from day one".

The internet reacted with all its usual wit and invention as former National Basketball Association star, and self-styled diplomat, Dennis Rodman turned in a weird TV appearance following the meeting of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un. I'm here to see it.

"This guy wants to be around the world", Rodman said of Kim.

Pompeo says North Korea could get ‘unique’ security guarantees
According to North Korean media, the North Korean culture suggests the younger ones should arrive earlier as a mark of respect. Pompeo declined to comment on a question about the approximately 28,500 US servicemembers based in South Korea.


If we ever needed visual confirmation of just how weird world diplomacy is in 2018, we now have it: in the spritely form of Dennis Rodman arriving in Singapore for the Trump-Kim summit in a marijuana cryptocurrency T-shirt.

The leaders are meeting on Tuesday on Sentosa Island and although it is unlikely that they will be indulging in anything more than a strong cup of coffee, PotCoin is maximizing to the full Rodman's relationship with both leaders. "I guess it gave me a little more shine of a light, as far as like, knowing the fact that I did something pretty, pretty historical as far as like bringing awareness to North Korea and some of the issues that's over there", Rodman said. Rodman exclaimed. "I'm so happy".

Translators will be present for Trump and Kim's one-on-one meeting Tuesday local time (Monday night ET), though experts have speculated that Kim knows English and uses translators to have more time to respond. He said the future North Korean leader had limited friendships in school, but that Kim loved playing basketball.

The publicity stunt did not see any specific action taken, instead, Rodman simply appeared in various interviews and talks with a wealth of news outlets, wearing a Potcoin branded t-shirt, that stated 'Peace Starts in Singapore'. "I said to everybody, 'the door will open, '" Dennis continued.

"Yes, Donald Trump reached out", he said.

But Rodman and his agent did say the five-time National Basketball Association champion was contacted, and thanked, by the White House. "And I've said to people all along, those people have never showed any animosity, any aggression, any antagonizing ways that have proved me wrong", he added. Another Rodman trip to North Korea was sponsored by online betting company Paddy Power, but that firm severed ties with Rodman in 2013 after taking heat for associating with the North Korean regime. "He's trying to protect his people, his honor, and everything that has to do with his country". It was the first-ever summit between a US president and a North Korean leader.
