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

Dennis Rodman heading to Singapore for Trump Kim summit

Rodman said he was "brushed off" when he tried to approach former US President Barack Obama about relations with North Korea. "It's wonderful, it's unbelievable, it's incredible, when I said those things, when I went back home, I got so many death threats, and I believed in North Korea, and I couldn't go home, I couldn't even go home, I had to hide out for 30 days, but I kept my head high, and I knew things were going to change". I never had no one to see me. Everybody came at me and I am still standing.

"I think if Trump goes in there with a great heart, with his heart on the table, and let Kim see him really emotional".

Rodman defended the talks between himself and Kim and also those between Trump and Kim as "the right thing to do". And that didn't deter me. "And today is a great day for everybody". While he wasn't an official part of the US delegation or involved the meeting, Rodman, who has formed an unlikely relationship with the murderous North Korean dictator, was in Singapore to show his support for the meeting. The statement comes on the heels of Trump slamming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as dishonest and weak while instructing his advisors to back out of a joint statement he had agreed to with USA allies at the G-7 summit. Kept going back. I showed my loyalty and my trustworthiness 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.

Tory minister criticised for "plain nasty" Brexit hanging comments
Mr Buckland, who was a Remain supporter, was standing alongside junior Brexit minister and Leaver Steve Baker when he made the comments.

"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".

Rodman most recently traveled to North Korea a year ago as a private citizen. "It's exciting to be a part of it".

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, who arrived in Singapore ahead of the meeting, shared his feelings with news anchor Chris Cuomo after the meeting between Trump and Kim got underway. He has made five trips to Pyongyang since Kim took power.
