Rodman arrives in Singapore ahead of summit

As speculation swirls in Singapore around the format and content of the summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, an unlikely guest has made an appearance.

And he accused former US President Barack Obama of "not giving me the time of day".

Cuomo, deciding it was safe to ask another question, wondered whether the White House had been in touch with him since his arrival in Singapore.

The former Chicago Bulls forward once called North Korea's Kim his "friend for life". "I'm glad it did", Rodman said Tuesday of the historic summit in Singapore".

"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said Tuesday, crediting Warmbier with helping lead to his meeting with Kim. I was the only one! "We just need the doors to be opened so we can start fresh", he said, describing the event as a "great day" and exclaiming: "I'm so happy!" The basketball Hall-of-Famer said that he had received threats on his life after returning from North Korea in 2014. The 57-year-old did not have an official role in the diplomatic negotiations between Trump and Kim, though he arrived in Singapore ahead of the summit "to see what's going on". "I'm pretty sure that I'll be going somewhere, like the White House to meet him", he said.


Rodman, who has developed a friendship with Kim over the years, told CNN's Chris Cuomo that he tried to arrange a meeting with Trump's predecessor but was turned away. During his appearance, Dennis, who happened to be wearing a Make America Great Again hat, opened up on the criticism he's received for his efforts to try and bring the USA and North Korea together. I was the only one. "She sent her best wishes and said that Donald Trump is really proud of you".

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". 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.

Trump is now in Singapore for talks with his North Korean counterpart, which began with a handshake between the two men and then continued with a sit-down meeting. "We sat down for lunch and he said: 'If you go back to the president of the United States, I'd be willing to talk to him". He even got emotional when discussing the summit on CNN.

Rodman is one of the few westerners to have met the North Korean leader on visits to the capital city of Pyongyang.
