Rodman weeps during interview on sidelines of Trump-Kim summit

Dennis Rodman Lauds Trump as 'Greatest Negotiator' and Shares an Appropriate Gift He Gave North Korea Rodman arrives in Singapore ahead of summit

Openly wiping away tears from beneath a large pair of black sunglasses, Rodman, who arrived in Singapore overnight, appeared overcome with emotion during an interview CNN's Chris Cuomo Tuesday, as Kim and Trump prepared to sit down for talks.

Rodman struck up an unlikely friendship with Kim over their shared love of basketball, but said former President Barack Obama never took him seriously. "And today is a great day for everybody, Singapore, Tokyo, China, a great day". "I don't see the politics of this whole situation", he added.

"Yes, Donald Trump reached out", Rodman said, telling Cuomo he had received a call from a person he described as Mr Trump's secretary.

"And when I went home - I couldn't even go home".

"I asked him, I said 'I have something to say from North Korea, ' and he just brushed be off", Rodman said.

Last week, Rodman said he would "give whatever support is needed" to his "friends" Trump and Kim.

Rodman spoke from Singapore, where he had travelled to play his part in the summit between the two nations.

"I'm out of it".

Rodman further told CNN that when he went back to Washington, he received death threats.

"Otto did not die in vain", Trump said Tuesday, crediting Warmbier with helping lead to his meeting with Kim.

The Pew poll, conducted in late April and early May, also reveals it is Kim, not Trump, Americans don't trust - even if the research group casts doubt in its report on the meeting between the two leaders having a successful outcome.

"It's fantastic, when I said those things, when I said those damn things, when I went back home I got so many death threats", Rodman, who was wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, told CNN's Chris Cuomo. "He thanks you a lot.' And that means a lot", said Rodman.

"But I kept my head up high, brother". "I couldn't even go home ..."

"I just felt like I fell in love with the country from day one", Rodman said. "This guy wants to be around the world, he wants to go to America". "I don't want to do war", Rodman had quoted the North Korean leader as saying.

But, somehow, one of the biggest talking points to come out of the historical meeting is former pro basketballer Dennis Rodman crying during an interview on CNN.

"We need the doors to be open and start fresh and make this world a better place, baby, that's it", he said.

However, he said, every time he has met Mr Kim, it has been a surprise, so maybe he would be surprised again on Tuesday.

He first visited North Korea in 2013 with members of the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team, and in 2014 put together a team of North Korean basketball players for an exhibition match marking Kim's birthday.
