Rodman ranted, cried and gesticulated wildly as he hailed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump for agreeing to the Singapore summit. Rodman said that Obama brushed him off and that he'd received death threats and had to go into hiding as a result. "And Obama did not give me the time of day", he said. But I kept my head high, brother.

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

Rodman couldn't get the USA government to foot the bill for his trip to Singapore, in his capacity as only reality-TV star who is pals with both Trump and Kim. No one to see me.

Describing Kim Jong Un as a "good friend", Rodman said he didn't want to think about the politics of the situation.

Rodman also said that Trump's secretary contacted him to let him know the President was proud of the work he's done in getting the two countries to the negotiating table. They share a love of basketball.

Just in case you did not know this, Dennis has formed a strong relationship with Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump.

"I got so many death threats", Rodman told the CNN host.

"Kim Jong Un is not a dumb man", Rodman, one of the only Americans to have built a relationship with Kim, stressed.

"He'd come home and he'd yell at me, "Oh what the f*** are you doing Colby, do the dishes" and he would just like freak out". So "RDA" took a fight this week instead - and now the champ says he wants to go in early August - but not against dos Anjos.

He praised Donald Trump's willingness to take the meeting.

He famously went to North Korea in 2013 with the Harlem Globetrotters, returning twice more that year to hang out with Kim, who was a long time fan of the athlete.

Mr Rodman arrived in Singapore wearing a T-shirt promoting PotCoin, which has sponsored his travel to North Korea in the past.

He was speaking just moments after Kim and Trump made history as they shook hands in Singapore. "I'll tell you what the Marshall wants more than anything".

But Rodman and his agent did say the five-time National Basketball Association champion was contacted, and thanked, by the White House. "I didn't know anything about North Korea. I said to everybody, 'the door will open, '" Dennis continued. He added: "People thought that I was trying to overstep my boundaries, thought I was a dignitary, an ambassador, human relations or something like that". I never had anyone to hear, see me.

"If Trump can pull this off, more power to him", Rodman said.

After wiping tears from his eyes, Rodman explained that he is continuing to advocate for peace between the two nations. It was the first-ever summit between a USA president and a North Korean leader.
