Dennis Rodman Wants Trump to Make Peace With North Korea

By    |   Monday, 06 November 2017 03:18 PM

Former NBA basketball player and "Celebrity Apprentice" competitor Dennis Rodman asked President Donald Trump to help in diffuse tensions between the U.S. and North Korea.

"Donald Trump, please, help us," Rodman said to TMZ Sports in Newport Beach as he prepared to visit North Korea. "You always say, 'unite.' I'm all about that."

Rodman told TMZ Sports that he trusts the president but wants to help facilitate a meeting between Trump and his friend, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea have escalated as Kim has defied the U.N. and NATO by repeatedly testing missiles and continuing to try to develop usable nuclear weapons.

Trump has addressed Kim directly in the face of increasing threats by the North Korean dictator, tweeting and saying in statements that North Korea would face "fire and fury" that the world has never seen before, the New York Post reported.

Rodman has visited Kim several times even as tensions have heightened, saying that he and Kim "hang out" and do things like karaoke and skiing.

"We hardly ever talk politics and that's the good thing," Rodman said, the Post reported.

Rodman, known during his NBA playing days as the Worm, has continued to defend Kim even as the dictator has been reported to have executed some of his own family members and threatened both South Korea and America with nuclear weapons attacks, the Post reported.

The U.S. recently deployed a missile shield in South Korea to protect them from threatened attacks by North Korea if they should materialize, Newsmax previously reported.
