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. "When I got home, I got so many death threats".
"Obama didn't even give me the time of day", Rodman said. I kept my head up high, brother.
The comment came after Rodman had wept on CNN when discussing the unprecedented talks in Singapore between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump. I am here to see it.
Rodman said he hopes everyone reads it before the summit and reiterated that "we've got the greatest negotiator of all time" to "show the world how it's done".
At one point, Rodman burst into tears talking about the backlash he faced at home in the USA for meeting with the North Korean dictator.
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 got so many death threats while I was protecting everything.
"I talked to Kim Jong-un and his administration over there five years ago", Rodman told CNN host Chris Cuomo. Rodman claimed the Obama had ignored his request. I couldn't go home. His Singapore trip was bankrolled by Cryptocurrency PotCoin, in exchange for wearing its T-shirts in on-camera appearances. "President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", Trump and Kim released in a joint statement at a signing ceremony early Tuesday morning.
"We need the doors to be open and start fresh and make this world a better place, baby, that's it", he said. White House officials have said that Rodman would play no official role in the diplomatic negotiations.
In 2014, Trump tweeted dismissively about the possibility that he and Rodman would someday travel to North Korea together. "He's trying to protect his people, his honor, and everything that has to do with his country".
Mr Rodman added he suspected he "somewhat had something to do with this North Korean situation".
"If Trump can pull this off, more power to him", Rodman said.
In 2017, his visit coincided with the release of American Otto Warmbier - a college student from OH who was arrested for theft and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
