Dennis Rodman Tears Up While Discussing Trump's Meeting with Kim Jong

Rodman, who is now in Singapore to witness the historic summit between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump, immediately broke down in tears while describing his relationship with North Korea's leader and his experience of being not taken seriously by people back in the United States.

"I couldn't even go home, I had to hide out for 30 days". White House, however, did not independetly verify the claim of the call.

North Korea and the United States appear to be warming up relations after spending most of 2017 on the brink of nuclear war. Rodman twice appeared on Trump's television show, The Celebrity Apprentice. In 2013 Rodman tried to convince then-US President Barack Obama to reach out to the North Korean leadership, but says he was "blown off" by the administration.

"I said to everybody, the door will open", Rodman told Cuomo as he wiped away tears from beneath his sunglasses during the interview.

"We sat down for lunch", Rodman said of a face-to-face meeting with Kim five years ago. "I guess it gave me a little more shine of a light, as far as like, knowing the fact that I did something pretty, pretty historical as far as like bringing awareness to North Korea and some of the issues that's over there", Rodman said.

Rodman did not seem perturbed by the call from the White House. "Never discussed, no interest, last place on Earth I want to go to", tweeted Trump.

An emotional Dennis Rodman praised President Trump on Monday and told CNN's Chris Cuomo that former President Obama wouldn't give him the time of day on his diplomacy efforts in N. Korea. We chose to revisit the history of Rodman's relationship with North Korea leading up to the summit.

Riesen said his advice for Trump would be to "try to find the sense of humor" that Kim has. He said things like if they can move the (inaudible?) [ I think he said ships] back from South Korea I will do what I have to do to listen. I guess I owe it to myself and the people around the world.

This is a true story and I've got me people here who heard the conversation.

It's a dramatic change of tune from 2014, when Trump said "Crazy Dennis Rodman is saying I wanted to go to North Korea with him".

Trump is now in Singapore for talks with his North Korean counterpart, which began with a handshake between the two men and then continued with a sit-down meeting.

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