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

It's been described as the biggest diplomatic breakthrough of the 21st century, but to former basketball star Dennis Rodman, Tuesday's meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US President Trump was a attractive moment between two good friends.

"I tried to do that to Obama, and he didn't even give me the time of day", he said. White House, however, did not independetly verify the claim of the call.

That said, CNN's Chris Cuomo interviewed him last night - and to say the least, it was interesting.

"Donald Trump's should take a lot of credit for this because he went out of the box and made this happen", he shared. "They're still with me after all these years", Rodman said before saying the was thankful for his corporate sponsor.

Rodman returned to North Korea again in September 2013, when he held Kim's baby daughter, and once more in December 2013, when he trained North Korean basketball players for an exhibition game to be held on January 8, 2014, Kim's birthday.

Rodman did not seem perturbed by the call from the White House. "Kept going back. I showed my loyalty and my trust to this country". I couldn't even go home, for thirty days.

Larry Kudlow had heart attack, Donald Trump says
He previously worked as a host on CNBC, and before that as a banker and economic adviser in the Reagan administration. Kudlow's condition wasn't immediately released by Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

"The United States and the DPRK commit to hold follow-on negotiations, led by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the U.S. -DPRK summit", the statement continues. I never had anyone to hear, see me. Rodman's trip was sponsored by PotCoin, a cryptocurrency company that gives marijuana businesses access to banking as an alternative to many financial institutions that will not do business with cannabis companies because marijuana is illegal under USA federal law.

If you were born after the year 1990, it's possible that you know nothing of Dennis Rodman's basketball career. I couldn't even go home.

Rodman found himself in a rare position as the summit came together, having met both leaders.

'Once I went to North Korea, I didn't really understand what the whole situation was as far as being over there'.

The former National Basketball Association player also described the North Korean leader as "a big kid, even though he's small, but he loves to have a good time".

It marks a contrast from 2014, when Trump tweeted about Rodman being "either drunk or on drugs" in response to the former National Basketball Association star's suggestion the two might travel to North Korea together. During that visit, North Korea released USA college student Otto Warmbier, who died shortly after his return.
