Dennis Rodman Offers to 'Straighten Things Out' Between Trump and Kim Jong

Dennis Rodman was on GMB to talk about Kim Jong Un

Dennis Rodman reveals he does karaoke with Kim Jong Un 'He's always smiling'

"In 2013, former US Deputy Secretary of State Steven Ganyard said that "(there) is nobody at the Central Intelligence Agency who can tell you more personally about Kim Jong Un than Dennis Rodman and that in itself is scary".

"I think if the president even tries to reach out for Kim, I think it would be a great possibility things can happen", he said, adding that Trump and Kim don't have to be friends, just start a dialogue.

Now, with the situation ultra tense between President Trump and Jong-un, Rodman is offering to "straigthen things out" and thaw the icy relationship between the United States and North Korea.

Rodman, who appeared multiple times on "Celebrity Apprentice" when Trump hosted the show, brought a copy of the president's book "The Art of the Deal" with him during his latest trip to North Korea in June.

Rodman has paid several visits to Kim in the isolated state but the two rarely discuss politics, the retired National Basketball Association star told British TV show Good Morning Britain. They do a lot of cool things together.

Rodman said he's not an apologist for Kim Jong Un and professed: "I love Donald Trump".

That bromance flourishes against a backdrop of increasing global stress.

Rodman knows both leaders and has had an opportunity to bond with them in the past, though between the two, he expressed more admiration towards Trump than Kim.

North Korea's Nuclear Weapons Institute claimed to have carried out a "perfect" hydrogen bomb test. We ride horses, we go skiing.

Sure, Kim Jong Un and his nuclear arsenal seem pretty scary. "You just hear what you think he's saying". But Rodman admits that he knows Trump can get "a little bit insane sometimes", being a former contestant on Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice".

It's amusing Rodman says that, since he also boasts a relationship with President Donald Trump, who has threatened North Korea with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

"It's just fun that me saying something like that makes people say "oh my God i'm protecting North Korea".
