Tearful Dennis Rodman: 'I Knew Things Were Going to Change'

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. The White House did not immediately respond to questions about the call. Unlike Trump, Obama brushed off Rodman's efforts to act as a mediator between Kim and the United States. We'll move on to the future and I've told people about Kim Jong Un.

His advice to Mr Trump was for him to go into the one-on-one meeting with his "heart on the table". No one to see me.

"I like the guy", Rodman said.

During his interview, Rodman discussed his conversations with the North Korean regime leading up to the summit.

Rodman began to tear up recalling the death threats he had received because of his visits, saying his intentions had been good and misunderstood - to promote peace, dialogue and sports in North Korea.

Trump and Kim appeared to greet each other warmly as they met at the Capella Hotel in Singapore.

He went back in 2017, when he sponsored by PotCoin, and gave Kim a copy of Trump's book The Art of the Deal.

"I thought it was just another one of those things that I was just doing, some charity event", he said. Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" cap on camera, Rodman stressed that he had shown North Korea his loyalty and trustworthiness. I never had no one to hear me.

There has been no indication Rodman would be involved in the official talks at the summit. He said things like if they can move the (inaudible?) [ I think he said ships] back from South Korea I will do what I have to do to listen.

Rodman told the news network from Singapore he had always been a supporter of North Korea, even while he was threatened for defending the country. I couldn't even go home. "He's trying to protect his people, his honor, and everything that has to do with his country".

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

As Cuomo himself said of Rodman on Monday night, "He is our best resource right now for understanding the minds of the two men, especially Kim Jong-un".

Rodman has struck up an unlikely friendship with the basketball-loving North Korean leader and made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power.

He continued, getting increasingly emotional.
