Rodman started to get emotional, cutting off Cuomo to reveal, "When I said those damn things, when I went home I got so many death threats". "We sat down for lunch and he said: 'If you go back to the president of the U.S., I'd be willing to talk to him". He explained that President Obama "didn't even give [him] the time of day", when he suggested he had a solution that would fix America's relationship with Korea.
"But I kept my head up high, brother". Trump said that he would know within seconds of meeting Kim whether the summit would go well.
"I just fell in love with [North Korea] from day one". I am here to see it. "He wants his people to enjoy their life", Rodman said. Trump said last week that Rodman had not been invited to the summit. They do also seem to have a side project, which uses Rodman to promote peace, love and unity.
Rodman, who entered rehab for a second time earlier this year, said he was similarly dismissed by President Barack Obama after arranging for a basketball game in North Korea in 2014. So many death threats. "I hope this is very serious", Rodman told The Post at the Regent Singapore hotel. "Donald Trump should take a lot of credit because he went out of the box".
He is one of the few westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city Pyongyang.
The former National Basketball Association star went on to discuss his attempts to get Obama to listen to messages that Kim reportedly gave to Rodman while he was visiting the country.
But Rodman and his agent did say the five-time National Basketball Association champion was contacted, and thanked, by the White House. Rodman is not at the summit in any official capacity, invited by neither the United States nor the North Korean delegations. "If you can do certain things, I would listen, my ears would be open, '" Rodman said.
That didn't deter Rodman, however, who continued to visit with the country.
