NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman broke down in tears on CNN while discussing Tuesday's historic meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump.

RODMAN: It is fantastic, it is wonderful, when I said those damn things, when I went back home, I got so many death threats.

Potcoin, as endorsed by National Basketball Association superstar Dennis Rodman is a currency well associated with North Korean based media attention, with Potcoin actually paying Rodman to travel to North Korea to help advertise the cannabis-based cryptocurrency in 2017.

"Obama didn't give me the time of day", Rodman said.

"I kept going back", he said. Trump said that he would know within seconds of meeting Kim whether the summit would go well.

"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.

Rodman couldn't get the US government to foot the bill for his trip to Singapore, in his capacity as only reality-TV star who is pals with both Trump and Kim. "And I think that people see now that I do care what's really going on and that's why I'm over here".

Domestic abuse victims don’t qualify for USA asylum, rules Jeff Sessions
The decision came hours after Sessions' latest criticism on the asylum system in which he and other administration officials consider rife with abuse.

Asked whether the White House had been in contact, Rodman said Trump's secretary had called him to say, "Donald Trump is so proud of you, he says thank you". The two struck up an unlikely friendship over their shared love of basketball.

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

"I talked to Kim Jong-un and the administration over there five years ago and he asked me five years ago", Rodman told Cuomo. Rodman exclaimed. "I'm so happy".

"If Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump understand and have a smooth comfortable relationship, smile, laugh, joke". "I like the guy", Rodman, 57, said.

Rodman's trip to Singapore was reportedly funded by Potcoin, a marijuana cryptocurrency, and he wore the Potcoin t-shirt throughout his visit. I couldn't even go home. White House and Trump himself had earlier said that former-basketball player wasn't invited for the summit. In the interview with "GMA" co-anchor Michael Strahan, Rodman, who is often criticized for his cordial relationship with the North Korean leader, praised his improbable friend.

"I thought I was doing a charity event", he said.

That didn't deter Rodman, however, who continued to visit with the country.
