Former NBA star Dennis Rodman got emotional over President Donald Trump's historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

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.

However, that's exactly what happened earlier today, when the Hall of Fame power forward went live on CNN for an interview with Christopher Cuomo. "I knew nothing about North Korea. I said to everybody, the door will open".

At the 4:00 AM press conference Trump said human rights were discussed at the summit.

Rodman, through tears, said he received death threats for meeting the North Korean dictator.

The White House has previously tried to play down the former Chicago Bulls forward's role, with spokesman Hogan Gidley telling Fox News last week that while he expected Trump and Kim to have "an awesome conversation", they will be doing so "without Dennis Rodman in tow". Rodman also goes back years with Trump and appeared on his "Celebrity Apprentice" show.

"He just wanted me to reach out and thank you for some of the positive things you said and appreciate you being helpful in this process". "A great day", he finished, referring to Monday's United States-North Korea summit. I never started it for no money. Trump said last week that Rodman had not been invited to the summit.

Wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat, the five-time National Basketball Association champion and longtime friend of Kim Jong Un, became emotional while sharing his role in bringing the two leaders together. Just in case you weren't aware that PotCoin sponsored the trip, Rodman wore their t-shirt with the url prominently displayed in the interview. I couldn't even go home. I believed in North Korea and when I came home I couldn't even go home.

"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". I couldn't go home. During that visit, North Korea released USA college student Otto Warmbier, who died shortly after his return. Rodman said he did not quite understand what the situation in North Korea was really like the first time he had gone there, but he said he was still "very honored" to visit the Asian country. "That's it, sports. I'm just so happy to be here, man".
