Rodman weeps during interview on sidelines of Trump-Kim summit

It's a surreal image: Dennis Rodman, standing in Singapore, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and sunglasses, giving an interview through tears as he cheers for President Donald Trump.

If we ever needed visual confirmation of just how freaky world diplomacy is in 2018, we now have it: in the spritely form of Dennis Rodman arriving in Singapore for the Trump-Kim summit in a marijuana cryptocurrency T-shirt.

Asked if he would meet Kim Jong Un in Singapore, the ex-basketball player said he thinks the North Korean leader "has bigger things to worry about than seeing me right now".

Rodman has faced ridicule and criticism for his trips to North Korea, which some USA politicians and activists view as serving only as fodder for North Korean propaganda. Former Chicago Bulls star Dennis Rodman, of course, who infamously went to North Korea several years ago and keeps inserting himself into these discussions ever since. "I got so many death threats".

"I think if Trump goes in there with a great heart, with his heart on the table, and let Kim see him really emotional". Kept going back. I showed my loyalty and my trustworthy [sic] to this country. After the two leaders shook hands and parted ways, Trump told reporters there would be many more meetings and that he's open to inviting Kim to The White House.

Rodman flew into Singapore late Monday ahead of today's summit, playing down expectations of an immediate breakthrough at the historic meeting.

"I think that I brought awareness to a lot of things around the world and I think North Korea has given a lot of people the opportunity to do this conference now and I hope it's a success". Trump said Warmbier "is someone who did not die in vain" and that what happened to Warmbier contributed to the summit taking place. He has made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power.
