'Trust each other first': Dennis Rodman watches Trump-Kim summit from Singapore

CNN's Chris Cuomo noted about Rodman on Monday night, "He is our best resource at this point right now for understanding the minds of the two men, especially Kim Jong Un".

Dennis Rodman was seen in Singapore sporting a MAGA hat, a red baseball cap with President Trump's election campaign slogan "Make America Great Again". "A great rebounder. You know when you think-Dennis was a great rebounder and he wasn't, relatively speaking, that tall", Trump said.

Rodman, who called Trump's press secretary "honey" twice during the call, was enthusiastic about her suggestion that the day would be "a good one for everyone". "When I got home, I got so many death threats".

"I'm not in this for no money".

Mr Rodman arrived in Singapore wearing a T-shirt promoting PotCoin, which has sponsored his travel to North Korea in the past.

The eccentric star also said he got death threats following his return from North Korea in 2014. Kept going back. I showed my loyalty and my trustworthiness to this country.

This has marked a momentous and historic occasion, so naturally, we did expect to see some sort of cryptocurrency-based publicity stunt. Have a smile, have a glass of iced tea. I knew it, I was the only one.

"I'm out of it".

Per CNN's Kevin Liptak, the meeting between Trump and Kim resulted in Kim signing a document that "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula". Rodman claims friendships with both world leaders, owing in part to his "Celebrity Apprentice" appearances and his rather frequent trips to N. Korea to meet with Kim dating back to 2013.

"It's unbelievable, 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. "But I kept my head up high, brother", he told Cuomo, who knew to keep quiet until Rodman ran out of steam. "I was the only one".

"And I tried to do that with Obama".

"Obama didn't even give me the time of day", he said. And yet, somehow we find ourselves with yet more angles to the events in Singapore, with former National Basketball Association star player Dennis Rodman doing the work of attaching another topic that is a favorite of the media, cryptocurrency. "Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to", tweeted Trump.

Rodman said Kim Jong Un was "all about the 21st century and was trying to progress North Korea". Throughout it all Rodman held fast to the belief that if our leader would simply extend his hand in a show of peace that Kim would be there to reciprocate. "He wants to come to America".
