Describing Kim with affection, Rodman said the North Korean leader loves to have a good time, wants his people to enjoy their lives, and would love to visit the United States.

"It's awesome, when I said those things, when I said those damn things, when I went back home I got so many death threats", Rodman, who was wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, told CNN's Chris Cuomo.

While a majority of Americans support sanctions, most also support military intervention to protect allies.

Rodman said he believed Trump "will understand that the people of North Korea have a heart, have a soul, charisma and love each other".

Rodman described Kim as a "big kid" who wants to see the world and he expressed hope that the two leaders will make progress. "And Obama did not give me the time of day", he said. I kept my head up high, brother.

Clapper responded: "I agree, Chris.as weird as it is. this whole thing is unconventional". "I was the only one". I never had no one to hear me. This trip to Singapore, like the last one, is sponsored by potcoin.com, the crypto-currency provider for the legal marijuana industry, Rodman said on Twitter.

Rodman found himself in a rare position as the summit came together, having met both leaders. "He wants to come to America and enjoy his life".


In an interview with CNN earlier on Tuesday, Rodman said: "It's a great day", wiping away tears from beneath a large pair of black sunglasses. "He thanks you a lot.' And that means a lot", Rodman said.

"It's a great day ..." For those of you who don't know, Dennis has formed quite a strong relationship with Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump.

The US President told reporters he expect he'll have "a terrific relationship with" the North Korean leader. Around seven-in-ten Americans (71%) said the US should take North Korea's nuclear threats "very seriously".

It marks a contrast from 2014, when Trump tweeted about Rodman being "either drunk or on drugs" in response to the former National Basketball Association star's suggestion the two might travel to North Korea together.

Rodman did not play any official role in the diplomatic negotiations in which Trump said Kim agreed to work towards denuclearization and announced a halt to U.S.

"Let's just hope for the best. We just need the doors to be opened so we can start fresh", he said.
