  • Dennis Rodman, sporting MAGA hat, cries over Trump-Kim meeting: 'This is a great day for everybody'

Former US basketball star Dennis Rodman wept during an interview in Singapore on Tuesday as he discussed unprecedented talks between the North Korean and US leaders in the city-state aimed at trying to end a nuclear standoff.

"I tried to do that to Obama and Obama didn't even give me the time of day", he said as he got emotional.

Though the mainstream media will continue their unrelenting assault of North Korea's human rights violations (as if our own record was spotless), anyone with an exacting glance on the charade will witness the unbelievable success achieved on this historic day.

He also has a history with Trump as Rodman appeared on his Celebrity Apprentice reality television show in 2009. "I asked him, "I have something to say from North Korea". No one to see me. "I said to everybody, 'the door will open, '" Dennis continued.

Moments after the two leaders shook hands, a tearful Rodman told CNN's Chris Cuomo he received "death threats" and "couldn't go home" after first visiting the rogue regime. During that visit, Rodman presented a copy of "The Art of the Deal", Trump's 1987 book on negotiation strategy, to a North Korean diplomat as a gift for Kim. "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. "Kept going back. I showed my loyalty and my trust to this country".

"I thought it was just another one of those things that I was just doing, some charity event", he said. While he wasn't an official part of the USA 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 US President and North Korea's leader have finally met. I never had anyone to hear, see me. His Singapore trip was bankrolled by Cryptocurrency PotCoin, in exchange for wearing its T-shirts in on-camera appearances.

President Donald Trump said today that he may consider granting a posthumous pardon to heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali . Trump also said he was thinking about granting clemency to "some others", adding that he has a list of 3,000 potential names.

The summit "almost didn't happen you know, but I'm glad it did. This is not about Dennis Rodman being the greatest person in the world, bringing the countries together", said Rodman. "When I got home, I got so many death threats".

Visibly upset, Rodman also said that under the Obama administration, he did not receive a pleasant welcome home the first time when he returned stateside after visiting Kim.

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

It is unknown if North Korea will be willing to put its nukes on the table in talks with the US.

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

"I believe in North Korea", Rodman said.
