Donald Trump says former NBA basketball star Dennis Rodman did the right thing in visiting North Korea last month.

Rodman has taken flak for calling North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un “a good guy” and “a friend for life.”

But Trump had no criticism. “You look at the world; the world is blowing up around us. Maybe Dennis is a lot better than what we have,” the real-estate and entertainment billionaire said of Rodman Monday on Fox News.

The former rebound machine is a contestant on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” airing on NBC.

“It’s not an act,” Trump added, referring to Rodman. “He’s a much different guy, and this year on the Apprentice — it’s amazing how sharp and smart. Dennis is not a stupid guy. He’s smart in many ways, he’s very streetwise.”

After his trip, Rodman said that Kim wants President Barack Obama to call him. Trump is open to that idea.

“Maybe that is not the worst thing, folks, instead of going through this whole charade we do every year,” he said. “Maybe it’s not the worst thing that somebody actually calls, because this world is just blowing up around us.We are doing nothing. It’s not a very big deal to make a phone call.”
