Rodman: I got call saying Trump was proud of me

With the Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un meeting now in full effect, in an event known as the Singapore Summit, the world's media are going a bit insane, for obvious reasons.

Speaking from Singapore and wearing a Make America Great Again cap, Rodman told CNN that a White House staffer called him to tell him the president was proud of him. Majorities also said North Korea is capable of launching a nuclear missile that could reach the USA (64%) and believed that the country's leadership is really willing to follow through on threats to use nuclear weapons against the US (65%).

"Once I got familiar with the culture and situation, I felt like I was at home", he said of his previous trips to the reclusive country, initially as part of a basketball delegation.

At one point, Rodman burst into tears talking about the backlash he faced at home in the United States for meeting with the North Korean dictator.

The former Celebrity Apprentice contestant described Kim as a "big kid" who wants to see the world, openly crying as he spoke. I knew things were going to change.

"He's one of the best negotiators of all time and I'm looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit", Rodman wrote. I never started it for no money.

I just listened to Dennis Rodman speak for 10 minutes on the #TrumpKimSummit.

Rodman, who has previously boasted of his role in bringing the two leaders together, described how he always believed in helping North Korea. "He wants to come to America and enjoy his life".

A man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a passenger and injuring two in a knife attack on a bullet train . The prefectural police will investigate details, including his motive. "We would like to be left alone for now".

Last week, Rodman said he would "give whatever support is needed" to his "friends" Trump and Kim. "I will go back to North Korea, I'm not anxious about that", he told The Post.

"Today is a great day for everybody, Singapore, Tokyo, China".

He famously went to North Korea in 2013 with the Harlem Globetrotters, returning twice more that year to hang out with Kim, who was a long time fan of the athlete.

"I'm thanking Chuck Daly".

Asked if he would meet Mr Kim in Singapore, the ex-basketball player said he thought the North Korean leader "has bigger things to worry about than seeing me right now".

Trump landed in Singapore a little after 8:30 p.m. local time for the highly-anticipated meeting with the North Korean leader, which is set to take place on Tuesday. "He is trying to protect his people and trying to protect his honor and everything that has to do with his country".

"I said to everybody, the door will open", Rodman said, his voice cracking with emotion.
