Last summer, Dennis Rodman made one of his trips to visit the North Korean dictator, Kim-Jong-un. The good news is: Rodman came back alive!
At the time of the visit in June of 2017, Rodman bestowed gifts, visited the North Korean basketball team and hung out with Kim Jong-un who invited the former NBA basketball player to celebrate his birthday. (VIDEO BELOW.)
Diplomacy through basketball and books?
“Dennis Rodman is ecstatic his friends, Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, are getting along … especially because he believes he played a big part in bringing the peace.
We spoke with the basketball Hall of Famer about North Korea’s newfound friendliness with the U.S. and its historic summit with South Korea … he tells us it’s simply been the result of open communication and good old-fashioned diplomacy. (Continued below.)
Rodman also points to his June 2017 visit to N. Korea — in which he supplied Jong-un with some of Trump’s books — as a catalyst for the dictator’s change of heart about the Prez and the American people.
Dennis is clear he doesn’t want to take the credit for the good vibes happening right now … but he can’t hide his joy in the role he played.
After all … it’s been his goal for a while now.” (VIDEO BELOW.)
As TMZ reports, “A lot of people blew off Rodman’s journey last year as a PR stunt, but considering the historic recent developments — ending the Korean War, and possible denuclearization — it’s hard to laugh at his efforts now.” Rodman says, the North Korean dictator has had a “change of heat”.
