Former professional basketball player Dennis Rodman on Sunday during a video chat with TMZ said he made an effort to help North Korean leader Kim Jong Un understand President Donald Trump.

"I did a lot of things for Donald Trump. I think he [Kim] didn't realize who Donald Trump was at that time until I guess he started reading the books and started to get an understanding," Rodman told TMZ.

The former Chicago Bulls player has visited Kim several times, and as recently as March urged Trump to let him travel to North Korea as a peace envoy.

His comments follow a landmark summit last Friday where South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Kim agreed to work to rid the peninsula of nuclear weapons and formally end the Korean War. Trump is set to meet with North Korea “over the next three or four weeks,” following Kim’s promise to work towards denuclearization.

"I don't want to take all the credit. I don't want to say, 'I did this, I did that,'" Rodman said of any progress in the relationship between North Korea and the U.S. "That's not my intention. My intention was to go there and be a sports ambassador to North Korea so people understand how the people are in North Korea."

"I don't ask Donald Trump for anything. I like Donald Trump," he noted. "He's a good friend, and I've always asked him to talk to me because the good people of North Korea and the government asked me to talk to Donald Trump about what they want and how we can solve things."
