FORMER NBA star Dennis Rodman openly wept on television in a live interview from Singapore today as President Donald Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un met for the first time. He told The Associated Press that he hopes to soon visit the White House.
The eccentric former reality television star is one of the few Westerners to have spent time with Kim during multiple visits to Pyongyang.
The two struck up an unlikely friendship over their shared love of basketball. Rodman also goes back years with Trump and appeared on his Celebrity Apprentice show.
In an emotional and sometimes hard-to-follow interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo, Rodman, wearing sunglasses and a "Make America Great Again" hat, said he had received a call from the White House ahead of Trump's historic meeting with Kim - the first between a sitting president and North Korean leader.
