Trump summit prep produces results: Darcy cartoon

Dennis Rodman Lauds Trump as 'Greatest Negotiator' and Shares an Appropriate Gift He Gave North Korea Vast Majority of Americans Support Trump’s Meeting with Kim Jong-Un
Jeannette Daniel | 12 June, 2018, 14:59

Amid a landmark summit between President Donald Trump and the young North Korean leader, Rodman appeared on CNN wearing a "Make America Great again" cap.

"We chose to leave the past behind" and the "world will see major change", Kim said at the document signing.

He was speaking just moments after Kim and Trump made history as they shook hands in Singapore.

But Rodman and his agent did say the five-time National Basketball Association champion was contacted, and thanked, by the White House.

"It's unbelievable, it's wonderful", Rodman said.

In answer to a question about Otto Warmbier, Trump called him and his parents "special" people.

Not one to miss an opportunity to promote himself, Rodman has been pointing all this stuff out on his official Twitter the past week, highlighting his unique friendship with both leaders and reminding folks that he presented the NK regime with a copy of the Trump-penned The Art of the Deal nearly exactly one year ago. I knew things were going to change.

Trump felt he didn't need to do a lot of prep, because of his own nature, but also because Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the President of South Korea had already met with Kim multiple times.

There has been no indication Rodman would be involved in the official talks at the summit. Former Chicago Bulls star Dennis Rodman, of course, who infamously went to North Korea several years ago and keeps inserting himself into these discussions ever since.

In an interview on CNN, Rodman admitted his naivete the first time he visited North Korea.

Rodman said he attempted to open communication between Kim and the presidential administration of Barack Obama following his 2013 visit to North Korea.

NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, who arrived in Singapore ahead of the meeting, shared his feelings with news anchor Chris Cuomo after the meeting between Trump and Kim got underway. "It ain't gotta be about war, it ain't gotta be about hatred or what happen in the future or the past", he told CNN.

While Rodman was hopeful and grateful for the summit, he pointed out correctly that it's just the start of what will be a long process.
